Dare to Lead is the fascinating story of how Anil K. Khandelwal transformed Bank of Baroda (BOB) from being just another public sector bank into one of the most valuable brands in Indian banking.
This is the story of the leadership challenges, management solutions and personal and professional excitement the author experienced in transforming the 97-year-old bank into a modern, tech-savvy, customer-centric bank.
This book is an excellent blueprint for undertaking transformation in large, geographically dispersed public sector enterprises. It describes how a large-sized bank was transformed on all parameters with clear vision, execution discipline, customer centricity and people engagement.
The author emphasizes that large-scale transformation can be undertaken successfully only if the CEO shows courage to change the status quo and mobilize the human effort within the organization.
The story of BOB's transformation has captured international attention and finds its mention in Harvard Business Review, Human Resource Development International and the book The India Way by the Wharton School faculty.

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.
