AMBITION MANTRA - THE GENESIS!
Soldiering - the ultimate challenge!
It was the year 1989, Ajay Ramakrishnan, then a young lieutenant in the Army, was ordered to select a small team of four soldiers, with the dangerous task of operating on the line of control, in thick mountainous jungles and during war, to cross and go beyond!
A challenging task, if ever there was one! Now how do you select people for such tasks? What is the job description? What are the skills required? Many criteria were drawn up, discussed and after a lot of tests and deliberations, the team was selected. That day, a seed was planted in the mind of young Ajay Ramakrishnan – “How to select the best person for the task that is needed to be done?”
As part of his military career, of over two decades, Ajay Ramakrishnan has had the opportunity of working at various levels and environments, selecting diverse teams and even having to select Mine Laying and Demining Teams during Operation Parakaram, which has often been considered one of the most dangerous types of military operations. During the Kargil war, Colonel Ajay was flying helicopters in the war zone and was responsible for selecting and combining helicopter crews for over 50 helicopters – that too on a daily basis! Selection and coaching people for any task, is challenging and needs a process that is foolproof!
It is mastery of such processes that has given Colonel Ajay, success in diverse fields. It is the sum of all his life experiences, training and knowledge that is applied and is being made available for the benefit of everyone.
Combat tech - human mantra!
