Shabbir Merchant goes independent
Shabbir Merchant, Executive Vice President of homegrown Indian HR consulting firm Grow Talent has now started his own Leadership consulting and coaching firm Valulead.
Looks like Grow Talent has started to bleed talent after the majority stake by Right Management, a division of Manpower Inc.
Amongst the other people who have left it post the stake sale are the ex-AVP Consulting Services Manjit Singh (currently Director of HR at Baxter India), Puneet Rathi who was VP of Consulting Services, and Head of HR Navita Deshpande.
Seems like an ironic situation when a HR consulting firm faces attrition? Not really. It is buffeted by the same employee issues and economic changes as its clients are. Sometimes focusing too much externally actually makes a consulting firm push its own needs on the back-burner. Sometimes, physicians fail to heal themselves.
But yes, it is not as amusing as an Astrological magazine which failed to foresee circumstances which were beyond its control!
