Mr. Shriharsh D. Sonar
Achiever's Success Story
And miles to go before I sleep
A strong believer in Robert Frost’s, “Woods are lovely, dark, and deep; but many promises I have to keep – And miles to go before I sleep,” FCA Shriharsh has religiously followed the righteous path of life with dedication, transforming and adjusting his whole life to keep up those promises made to Life, never succumbing to the various financial challenges that life had to offer, achieving what he has achieved today. In short, believing life to be the best teacher has been his mantra in life and he has rightfully rewarded his Guru with his dynamic experience and gained a degree as a qualified CA at the age of twenty-six. The journey was never a cakewalk for him. Having not spent even five thousand on his total education, without resorting to any coaching classes… in times when resources were absolutely scanty, and guidance was nearly unavailable, walking the path was not an easy task.
Always a lover of literature, reading various quotes, and Words of Wisdom, interacting with over 10K+ stakeholders in his twenty-years of corporate career, including the ones from countries like USA, UK, Latam, and EU by working in multinational, multicultural corporates, managing large sized teams with multi-manufacturing plants under him, interacting with people at the helm of affairs including CEOs, Directors, family-owned director driven companies, interest in knowing human psychologies, made him realize his flair for writing and he decided to chase it in the next decade of his career along with carrying his professional duties diligently. No wonder, he sometimes calls himself a resurrected storyteller!
Various management training including the prestigious Mentor (UK) and Levels 1 and 2 of GOLD (Graduates of learning developments) with various human behavioral theories further helped him to learn different dimensions of human behavior.
Shriharsh has always ensured to distinguish between being a boss and a leader and has persuaded many people to live a better life, pursue a good education, and higher studies. He always guided several youngsters to chase the right career, unfolding their present potentials with more meaningful perspectives.
Shriharsh aspires to do something meaningful for women and hence, always encourages his women team members to shoulder more responsible jobs in their career trajectory and has groomed several of his female colleagues in their career turnarounds.
Creative Thinking, the ability to instantly plug in and move at the right pace, to put value addition to anything, think out of the box, read, and use Google, and Wikipedia in a meaningful way, his never-ending voraciousness for knowledge and love for Art and always challenging the ‘Status Quo’ are some of Shriharsh’s traits which he always inculcates at work and every walk of life.
