Product description


A personal tale from a very wise man; I was captured and captivated. (Tom Peters)

This is a marvelous read for those charged with transforming their organizations. The stories do a masterful and magic job of weaving together themes like vision, discipline, accountability, customer centricity, transparency, employee engagement, and meaning. I strongly recommend the book. (Dave Ulrich)

A very lucid journey of a successful leader and a public servant. Khandelwal`s eighteen leadership lessons crystallized from 37 years of experience are inspiring for future generation of Leaders. (Ram Charan)

Anil Khandelwal`s insider account of the transformation of a bank in India is not only a practical case study of leadership in action; it is a guide to the challenges of success in emerging markets that will be valuable for global managers of the future. (Rosabeth Moss Kanter)

This book is a detailed analysis of the transformation of a bank which is today third largest public sector bank in India and very fascinating and inspiring life of Mr Khandelwal.... It’s a must read for all who dare to lead


Dare to Lead, is a book definitely worth reading…[This book] brings out the trials, tribulations, dilemma and apprehensions of khandelwal as he embarks on his ambitious journey. What is noteworthy is that the changes were brought about by khandelwal who was not a traditional career banker but an HR professional…Both the academicians and the professionals will find this book on leadership and management useful.

(Business India)

Complex issues of managing a large government-owned corporation are captured in the book… This is an important book for many reasons. It gives us a perspective of the constraints under which our public sector works…It tells us a story of what is possible  within this constrains...It tells us the human side of banking…Khandelwal’s style is simple and straight, almost reducing the book to a guide-book for public sector bankers.


The autobiography of Bank of Baroda’s ex-chief is riveting…In Dare to Lead, Anil Khandelwal shows how Bank of Baroda or BoB, got a handle on the human aspects of running a bank much better than other public sector banks, or even the private ones.

(Business Today)

The book, a written account of [the author’s] varied experiences from his career-long journey; it has 18 lessons, and is a rare case study for CEOs, an insightful study for students and scholars, and a motivational piece for other PSUs

(The Hindu)

It’s often said that the experience of reaching a destination is more interesting than the destination itself. The same holds true for this book… It’s a must read for human resource managers… the book broadly deals with challenges that a leader faces while bringing about changes in a large corporation. There are a number of things to learn from them. I found the recounting of the journey to reach the top more interesting. On the whole, the book has innumerable pearls of wisdom for a reader.

(Outlook Money)
