“Interview with Shumeet Banerji, CEO, Booz & Company”
“I do not manage a corporation; in our business, it’s about influence rather than dictation,” Booz & Company CEO Shumeet Banerji said in an interview that appeared in the Nov. 10 issue of The Wharton Journal. “You need to lead by example, motivate and know your place in the world. We must have a clear moral compass on behalf of the firm. Our job is to help leaders lead and we work by persuasion and influence.” Banerji’s advice to business students: “Have a clear sense of your purpose,” he said. “Know what kind of person you are and what you want to achieve. If the answer is to make a lot of money, it might not be good enough.” Banerji presented his remarks during a recent visit to The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
