This is the Leadership Journey series on the Choosing Leadership Podcast.

I believe we all have a lot to learn from each other’s stories – of where we started, where we are now, and our successes and struggles on the way. With this series of interviews, my attempt is to give leaders an opportunity to share their stories and for all of us to learn from their generous sharing. If you know a leader whom you would like to see celebrated on the show, please send me a message on LinkedIn with their name.

In this insightful interview, we dive into the remarkable journey of Rachit Ahuja, a Delhi native whose path from a coder in a banking software company to a thriving entrepreneur is nothing short of inspiring. 

Rachit shares candidly about his early career confusion and how he discovered his true calling on the business development side. 
He emphasizes the importance of self-awareness and the need for role models in navigating one’s career. 

Rachit’s story is a testament to the power of introspection, mentorship, and adaptability, offering valuable leadership lessons for those looking to create a workplace where they genuinely love what they do. 

Join us for an engaging conversation that’s bound to motivate and resonate with your own leadership challenges.
