Book Review

Students, you are our Leaders of Tomorrow. We are counting on you to solve our planetary woes. Like Professor Rao, the greatest Leaders put their egos in the back garden making world peace their ultimate goal. This can only be reached through individuals achieving inner peace. Those who are loving and compassionate do not go to war. Professor Rao in his book "Sage Advice" encourages making yourself a true instrument of God and thus your Inner Guru will masterfully guide you to be great and lead others to find their greatness. Noble leadership is calling us.

Betska K-Burr
I read his article on Soft Leadership in Leader to Leader

It took me a long time to feel comfortable with my natural soft leadership style, and I wish I had found his research years ago! Professor Rao's point about making others feel important is so critical. I have found that skill to be the #1 employee retention tool, and when a leader can’t master that, their talent is constantly at risk.

In Soup for Academic Leaders: Acquire Teaching Tools to Achieve Your Academic Leadership Success Professor M.S.Rao, International Leadership Guru outlines the importance of education in a leader's arsenal of tools. Indeed, hunger is the beginning of all leadership because answers are obtained only when the questions are asked. In other words, its easier to teach a hungry person how to be sharp than it is to teach a sharp person how to be hungry.

"In a technologically-based global marketplace, several fundamental means of relationship-building are often sacrificed in the quest to complete the business transaction: communication, comprehension, and clarity. There must be a renewed emphasis on the development and refinement of communication skills where listening, analyzing, comprehending, and translating thoughts and responses in a respectful, well-articulated manner are at the forefront of business discourse.

Very few people I met in my life are unforgettable in the life time. One of those is prof MS Rao. He is one among the transformation leaders, like whom I have never met in my life. I am very glad to meet such a person in my life, which would remain in my mind throughout the life time.

I am sure, with these kinds of transformation leaders in our country, we can help to take our country to the next levels.

Teaching concepts are extra ordinary, apart from all those, the theme of teaching and pushing the leadership qualities into the normal minds are really appreciated.

Reading these sutras offers a powerful refresher course in the principles of successful leadership. Every reader can earn an honorary graduate degree by learning and utilizing Professor Rao’s sutras. Like a trained chef’s recipe for the perfect chocolate soufflé, Professor Rao’s book, Sutras for Your Leadership Success – The 21 Indispensable Lessons for Leaders explains, step by masterful step, detailed instructions for “minimizing leadership mistakes” and “enhancing leadership effectiveness.” Bon appétit!

I recently read an outline of Professor Rao's new book

Professor M.S. Rao’s new book ('Sutras for Your Leadership Success')is built on the premise that failures and mistakes provide leaders with a powerful opportunity for learning. He adds that the failures need not all be one’s own . . .
The book presents a series of sutras — guidelines or principles — that Professor Rao has identified in his reading, study, consulting, and teaching. Each of these provides the starting-point for a discussion of its meaning and how the sutra can be applied in business and leadership.
Rao draws engagingly on literature, history, art, science, and religion to find important and practical lessons for leaders.

At the outset, I had an impression that this is a great man with an insight on any topic which he writes. His articles are informative and makes you think in a different perspective. He packs knowledge not only about leadership but also the recent political happenings in the country. His point of view is the other side of the coin which people rarely see or want to see on any issue. Kudos to him.

Personal Training Interaction

Professor M.S.Rao mesmerizes his audiences through his story telling and knowledge. He is also a great researcher in leadership who teaches with lot of passion. He is going to be one of the top international leadership gurus soon. I enjoy listening to his motivational speeches. He knows how to bounce back from failures and also teachers others how to bounce back from failures with tenacity and resilience. Ganesh

Just read his great books

I am a BIG advocate of soft skills. They follow you regardless of your occupation or industry. They not only help you get employed but get you promoted. Professor M.S. Rao’s newest book, Soft Skills for Management and Engineering Students, successfully outlines and explains in detail the communication, interpersonal, time management, negotiation, motivation, writing, listening, reading and presentation skills greatly needed by Management and Engineering Students in the 21st century job market.

“Professor Rao M.S. has written another masterful piece of work, this one focusing on the soft skills need to help one’s employability.

Prof. Rao has immense knowledge and a passion to share it. His classes are full of energy and interaction when compared to the motonous lectures we hear frequently. The activities and role plays conducted during his sessions adds value to the knowledge gained by books which is far more valuable since he always gives real time examples and relates the subject to our day to day activities thereby increasing our confidence by 110%.
I would like to write more but the above summarizes it. Wish you the very best in years to come. Regards, Ashwin Setlur.
