How Passion encourages you to be a people’s person and still be innovative
Feeling appreciated at work can make all the difference.
Imagine putting a lot of effort, hard work, and time into a project that comes out perfectly. Clients love it, your colleagues love it, and everyone’s amazed by the work quality. You expect people to notice what you’ve done. You feel your passion is being recognized and it really turn things around. If you think this is something like how a web series portrays corporate life scenario, or you may find this only in movies, THINK AGAIN!
Because, Amol Jagtap, AVP, Cloud Practice reveals such interesting stories about his initial project days, work habits, making things happen and how it led him to be a #MWTriber
We caught up with Amol for a candid conversation, here is what he had to say.
Can you tell us something about your initial days and the story today?
Ahhh… Brings back so many bitter-sweet memories. So, I was a part of a critical project, and every organization has a certain way of doing things. And me being a new person I was steering my way cautiously. You know, trying to understand the system, the culture, and how things operate. But eventually, I started contributing my ideas. And the way I was encouraged, how everyone welcomed me was surreal. When I asked one of my colleagues about this, they graciously pointed out that my conviction was most appreciated. And that’s what everyone looks forward to when working with me.
What personal challenges and wins have steered you to always stay motivated at work?
Lately, I have started investing my time in one of the key projects that I am passionate about. You will shortly see it in action as one of our extended offerings. And let me tell you, when everyone here says #MakeThingsHappen, I just realized how real this motto gets.
What habit you’ve picked up from your peers that you cannot go back on.
This is not something that I picked from my peers or colleagues. But keeping a priority list helps me plan my day well ahead. Likewise, I can be more productive and spare my energy is the right way. This inculcated from my travel time when I was working in Korea and landed in a completely foreign environment. My travel diaries have always inspired me to always be prepared and have Plan A, Plan B and Plan C ready. And that has really helped me in my work ethic as well.
What the best part you enjoy the most working here in #MWTribeLife?
We usually underestimate the empathy factor when we are working together with a common goal. But, here in Motifworks, I have seen how caring and helpful everyone is. When I talk to Vikas or Nitin, I can see how well they practice mutual respect, co-dependence and genuinely connecting with people rather than just getting things done. That’s something which really drives me to take decisions, encourage people and trust each other.
What advice would your present-self give to the past Amol when he had just joined?
Don’t be unsure. You’ve got this and everyone at the table values you for that. So be fearless, act and create more phenomenal stories than you always wanted to.
If you had to describe #MWTribeLife in just three words, what would they be?
Well, its little difficult to explain in just three words. But if I had to pick them, it would be-
Opportunity, Equity, Respect.
