S4E8: “Extreme ownership and tough love” with CEO CP Gurnani

In this episode, CEO CP Gurnani talks with Xquadrant's Founder Richard Medcalf to continue our season on "CEO Success Formulae", where highly impactful CEOs share what’s driven their success to date - and explore what it will take to reach the next level.

CP Gurnani is the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Tech Mahindra. In a career spanning 35+ years, CP has held several leading positions with HP, Perot Systems and HCL Corporation. CP was awarded the 'Best CEO of the year' three years in a row by Business Today.

In this conversation, you’ll learn:

  • The specific mindset that propelled CP to CEO of a 100,000+ employee organisation
  • How CP dealt with the challenge of having to make over 10,000 people redundant
  • The "3Ps" that define his entrepreneurial thinking
  • The value - and limitations - of a competitive mindset

"We never rise further than the level of our thinking"
