The Leadership Practice

Leadership is about delivering business results. Our leadership practice helps our clients forge long-standing trust in their business relationships.

Our practice helps business owners and leaders at all levels of the organisation develop the leadership language, perspectives, knowledge, skills and systems to solve strategic problems with clarity and confidence. Over the years, we have helped 150+ leaders across 5 continents, build and run successful multi-billion dollar enterprises through our leadership practice.

The Practice of Governance

This practice of SOCH helps our clients to build an enterprise-wide system for trust and character. Most family businesses in India lack systemic-level governance, making it difficult to grow beyond a certain level.

This practice has helped our clients develop mechanisms to ensure control, manage risks and diversify with ease and efficiency. Governance may seem less important, but in reality, it is a critical function for businesses to avoid unwarranted loss of financial capital, human capital, morale capital and social capital.

The Practice of Enterprise

The scalability and accelerated pace of growth of any business is highly dependent on technology beyond a certain point of time and maturity of the business. This practice at SOCH has helped business owners plan for their enterprise architecture to harness and invest in opportunities ahead of their time.

This practice has helped clients design, develop and implement their business operating model (BOM) and technology operating model (TOM) – the synergy of which can deliver both scale and speed. If your family business is growing in new geographies, new products and/or new markets, enterprise architecture will help you unlock the untapped value of the opportunity in the short-run as well as the long run.
