Details: Product Description Homemaker-CEOs can teach MBAs, corporate managers and businesses much more than you ever imagined. Doesn’t managing a home’s finances, nurturing the family’s nutritional and emotional needs and planning the workflow of everyday activities of different family members count as management? Every Mother Is a CEO answers these questions and more. In a breezy, conversational style, the author Dhanjit Vadra—Managing Director, Allen & Alvan Pvt. Ltd and CEO, Allen & Alvan Defence & Aerospace—recounts the ways in which his mother Urmil Vadra worked tirelessly towards managing a large household, raising a family and assisting his father build a hardware manufacturing empire from scratch. Through her common-sense management techniques, knack for organizational efficiency and most of all, compassion for family and staff, she not only brought up extremely successful and well-settled children, but also created a team of dedicated personnel to look after both family and business. In achieving all this and more, she proves yet again how homemakers are caregivers, supervisors of finances and inventory, educators and HR managers. In fact, they are anchors of the whole family unit and the wheel that makes everything run. Filled with anecdotes, tips, inspiring stories of business pioneers like Ford and Godrej, and common business scenarios, this is a riveting and informative read for managers, employees and students alike. It opens our eyes to the often overlooked, vital management skills of homemakers. Review “This inspiring story reinforces the role of homemakers as caregivers, supervisors of finances and inventory, educators and HR managers.” — Aditya Puri, former Managing Director, HDFC Bank “Dhanjit Vadra’s book is a befitting tribute to his mother, Urmil Vadra, and a sincere acknowledgment of her contribution to their home and business. It’s an important book which explains the economic value of a homemaker and attempts to highlight the role of women as natural multitaskers—whose contribution is often undermined. Every Mother Is a CEO tries to rectify that popular misconception by accepting and lending value to those unsung heroes in every home.” — Sharmila Tagore, actor About the Author Dhanjit Vadra is managing director of Allen & Alvan Pvt.
