Ajay Srihari
Service Manager, Hewlett Packard.

"Ajay’s skills are the defining invariance"

I changed some four companies and joined HP in 2009. Jan 9th ’09 was the first day when I first met Ajay. The first question he asked all of us [J&J Engineers],”Who is your Manager? Where is Ajay, anyone has seen him?” I tried looking into his ID badge, but it was back side front. I though Ajay to be my functional manager rather people manager as he distributed the list of my Username/password and asked me to login to ensure and verify if everything is okay.

Ajay is not only decisive, intelligent, and aggressive, but caring, sensitive, and personable. He is able to handle conflict and have the ability to develop solutions to complex problems.

People skills are probably one of the most important qualities that Ajay possess. When something goes wrong, or a decision needs to be made; people look to him for assistance.

Ajay stresses more on individual growth and team building. His passion towards technology is next to none and his way to sense the issue & acknowledge adds another kodachi into his arsenal as a Manager.

While writing this blog, I tried recalling all previous managers, I worked to single out the best qualities of manager's that I experienced in the past. I fell short of words to describe Ajay, but to write – his skills are the defining invariance. Ajay’s analogical skills are injected in his communication. He is daring manager who loves to give opportunities and make his employee feel motivated to achieve their finale goal.

Ajay is an excellent manager to work with, a friend to share your feelings, a techxpert to get his vision and ideas and above all – A person who gives more values to Emotional Intelligence.
