FOUNDERS MESSAGE

SOIL has given a lot of joy to all members of our Eco-System: Founders, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, Students, NGO partners, Consortium members and recruiters. The founders count their blessings for being given an opportunity to develop leaders who truly care for the planet, have the competence to contribute to business excellence and have the enthusiasm to make a difference. The faculty love our students and consider learning a process in which they serve as facilitators. Our staff trust the people they work for, take real pride in what they do and deeply enjoy the spirit & community in SOIL. Our alumni have deep bonds of love and ownership for SOIL as they strive hard to give off their best. Our students are our real wealth. They bring their goodness in every sense and create the positive vibes that make us unique. Our NGO partners enjoy the relationship with SOIL of being a co-creator and shaper of our social innovation agenda. Our consortium members gain deep satisfaction in contributing to the development of a School with a difference. And our recruiters celebrate the products of SOIL by participating in large numbers to fulfill their need for talent that is well rounded. It gives us tremendous joy to present our third batch of young leaders to you. The batch of 2012 has continued the tradition of SOIL students by taking responsibility for the way we live. They have taken to our Social Innovation Program like a fish takes to water. They have also reached out to many other institutions to spread the message of Inspired Leadership through several interventions. They are not just hungry to know but also to do, thus bridging the knowing-doing gap. Not a day passes without our seeing the impact they are making by expressing themselves about issues they deeply care about through social media and blogs. This group has taken the initiative in building the reputation capital for SOIL through collaboration with other institutions, participation in and organization of external forums-using all channels to reach out to other young people and communicating and personifying the power of Inspired Leadership. They have done us proud by managing several activities with great enthusiasm. Here are two simple examples: -the morning circle is owned and led by the students, a ritual followed at SOIL every morning, in which the whole school gets together to share and celebrate -Sourcing of live projects from mentors and other industry leaders to enhance learning This batch showcases extraordinary talent in multiple ways we have amateur writers including a student who has written a book on 'Self- realization', some of our students are brilliant artists, budding poets and skillful dancers. It is joyful to see these multiple intelligences in action. I appreciate the focus of this batch on their own holistic development, be it academics or extracurricular activities. This group is truly taking SOIL to the next level and that's why they have been christened as the 'The Game Changers'. As Dr. Srikant Datar of Harvard Business school mentions in his new book 'Rethinking the MBA'(paraphrased) To create true leaders a B-school should balance knowing, doing and being. It is humbling to see the SOIL batch of 2012 truly personify the hunger for knowing, the drive for doing and the love for being. We are delighted to present the 'Game Changers'- the batch of 2012, to you With Love & regards

HOW DO WE LEARN? HOW DO WE LEAD? HOW DO WE LIVE?


Learning is a continuous process and SOIL ensures that there is continuity in our learning. We not only learn by listening and watching but also by doing, experimenting, succeeding and failing. We at SOIL, learn to learn by ourselves. The different initiatives that we all take help us in testing our concepts which we learn in class. The fast track program ensures that we utilize every minute of our time effectively and hence learn the basic art of time management in the best possible way. Leading is an art, which if not performed to perfection, can have an ill effect on the surroundings. Being ethical and compassionate is at the core of a great leader. We lead with courage and a sense of pride in the values that we possess. We live with our head held high. We believe that each individual is not only accountable for his/her own actions but also for the effect those actions have on the surrounding. We live responsibly, ethically and most importantly compassionately. We live our passion at SOIL and help each other to reach the peak of our potential. - Amber Agarwal, BLP 2012 We learn keenly, we lead courageously, we live ETHICALLY. And we work towards becoming an ethical & responsible citizen. We learn with curiosity, we lead with magnanimity, we live with DIVERSITY. And diversity brings in what no other culture can, the clout of creativity. We learn with passion, we lead with COMPASSION, we live with ambition. And our ambition is to make our country a better nation. We learn MINDFULLY, we lead thoughtfully, we live peacefully. And peace comes as we care & love unconditionally. We SUSTAIN what we learn, we follow what we lead, we give as we live. And giving is true having, we may not have what we want, but we do have what we need - Amit Puri, BLP 2012 Learning at SOIL has been like a never ending road. Opportunities are always thrown open on the floor and you pick

up the best for yourself. The continuous emphasis on leadership with responsibilities has changed the way I used to look at things. The leadership courses specifically helped me connect with myself internally first and also gave me the confidence of how future leaders can be different yet responsible. SOIL has been a perfect place for me to learn, lead and live in a true sense. -Hersh Sharma, BLP 2012 SOIL is the place which is bringing back the gurukul culture of learning. It is the place which contradicts the statement that says leaders are born, they can't be made. It is the place which is transforming today's human beings to become the inspired leaders of tomorrow. The place, the class rooms are designed in a scientific manner that brings out the positive energy in oneself. A place, where all are equal. A place, that appreciates every bit of goodness and provides ample opportunities to enhance and imbibe skills to achieve greater heights in life. Disappointment comes to those who keep appointment with future and being mindful, these are the two learnings that are incepted in me till now. These two learnings have changed my perception towards life. One should learn to live in the present and not worry about the future and that's what matters the most which helps you to live every single moment with lots of curiosity, positivity and motivation. I consider myself a chosen one for being a part of the SOIL family. It's a journey that every leader should travel in his life besides learning business etiquettes. I feel fortunate to get such an exposure. -Manjesh Bharati, BLP 2012
