Indian Tech Exec ‘Driven’ Toward Leadership Success - Global Atlanta

In tech executive Lalit Dhingra's view, #leadership is not a skill to be mastered academically, but a set of lessons to be acquired on a lifelong journey of experience.

He shared his insights gleaned from an India-to-Atlanta odyssey and 40-year career at a recent Authors Amplified event at Arnall Golden Gregory LLP.

We summarize the discussion (and post a link to the full video) here:

https://www.globalatlanta.com/indian-tech-exec-driven-toward-leadership-success-via-atlanta/

For Lalit Dhingra, coming to the United States in 25 years ago was not a clear-cut choice. In 1997, before the new millennium, the path to the U.S. for Indian tech executives was not nearly as well-trodden, and especially in a place like Atlanta, the hurdles for expatriates — such as getting a dri...

Last night, Lalit Dhingra, formerly of NIIT Technologies and current CEO of EnSignis Digital, was gracious enough to share with us leadership lessons from a 40-year career in tech, as outlined in his book “Driven: A Journey to Leadership.”

Incisive insights included how to counter personal bias, handling conflict within teams, the importance of empathy, differences in leading established corporations versus startups, empowering employees versus “spoon-feeding” them, and many more lessons from his leadership journey from #India to America.

Grateful to Arnall Golden Gregory LLP for hosting and the Atlanta Global Studies Center for its continued support of the Authors Amplified series.

German Christmas Market Returns From Pandemic Hiatus With New Buckhead Location - Global Atlanta

After a pandemic hiatus in 2020, the Atlanta Christkindl Market is back this year, relaunching on Black Friday at its third location since the family-friendly tradition was brought to the city five years ago.

Today Global Atlanta mourns and celebrates with the family of our founder and publisher emeritus, Phil Bolton.

We mourn the loss of Vicki Bolton, Phil’s wife of 43 years and tireless companion, the news of whose passing we learned Sunday morning with some surprise and a heavy dose of grief.

It would be easy for us to craft the story of Global Atlanta as one man’s vision for connecting a city with the world through the news. But as I think about how we can continue Phil’s spirit of innovation, I’m chastened by the fact that we have not spent enough time celebrating Vicki’s unsung contributions.

Like most startups, Global Atlanta (or GlobalFax in the early days, as many will remember) was a family endeavor. Vicki was the clerical side of the publication and much more as it got off the ground in the early 1990s and indeed carried much of the weight still when I joined in 2007.

But more than that, she was a constant support for Phil during his days of local journalism in Macon and Milledgeville (where they met) as well as after their move to Avondale Estates and the subsequent international reporting stint in Paris that immediately preceded his decision to create a new kind of news source bridging the local and global. As Phil acknowledged to me just recently, Global Atlanta would not have happened without her.

More than that, those outside the publication should know that Vicki always made every member of the Global Atlanta family feel like part of the Bolton family. I recall fondly Christmas parties, jazz concerts, Braves games and dinners where she worked behind the scenes to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all.

Anyone who knows the Boltons knows that interactions with this family are never transactional: Whatever they do, they do with gusto, usually for others’ benefit, finding their joy in the nexus between their interests and the world’s good. That is what I hope to continue to bring to Global Atlanta.

While we mourn, we also find our sadness tempered by a sliver of light today. Nov. 5 is not only the day that the beloved Braves are being lauded for bringing home a World Championship for their devoted fan, Vicki, but also because we can celebrate the day of Phil’s birth.

I have been lucky enough to call Phil a boss, a colleague, a friend and an international travel companion (probably more often than he would have liked). I always like to say that I’m riding his coattails in everything I do. From now on, I will be sure to acknowledge that I’m hitched to Vicki’s too.

Tourism Minister in Atlanta: Greece Ready to Welcome Vaccinated Americans May 14 - Global Atlanta

"We do not aim for quantity in terms of revenue or number of people that come in now -- just quality. And quality for us means to have the ability to travel if you want to, and to be safe throughout the journey, door to door, and go back to your loved ones and relatives, safe and sound."

That's from our interview with Harry Theoharis, Greece's tourism minister, who visited Atlanta to talk about the country's reopening May 14 to vaccinated and COVID-free Americans, particularly from the Southeast U.S.

Fresh Off UN Ambassadorship, Canada’s Louise Blais Returns to Her Old Job as Consul General in Atlanta - Global Atlanta

Fresh off her role as Canada's ambassador to the United Nations and with five months until her next assignment, former Consul General Louise Blais asked for a chance to come back and lead the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta.

“They agreed because they knew I could hit the ground running already knowing the territory so well,” she told Global Atlanta.
