Episode 9: ‘Conscious Leadership’ on TheSfactor Talk Show
- The Bengaluru based TheSfactor Talk Show makes it global with the 9th Episode – Conscious Leadership ‘Inclusivity’ and ‘Diversity’ – Key aspects of Conscious Leadership!
Bengaluru: “Leadership in the conventional sense, is about command and control, however, this is not something that will sustain in a post-Covid world. What we require at the moment is a new, sensitive, and inclusive form of Leadership,” said distinguished Toastmaster, keynote speaker and motivator Ian Faria, on Episode-9 of TheSfactor Talk Show, a global initiative by two ambitious thought-leaders – Director of Ecosol Global Sameera Fernandes and CEO of Shevins Entertainment Shekhar Vijayan, on Friday, July 2, 2021, at 4 pm.
TheSfactor Talk Show hosted the 9th episode – ‘Conscious Leadership’, and eminent leaders such as the Former Police Commissioner of Bangalore IPS Bhaskar Rao, distinguished Toastmaster, keynote speaker, motivator and Master Coach Ian Faria and award-winning speaker, author and podcaster Samie Al-Achrafi were the panellists of the talk show, which was aired online via Zoom. TheSfactor is all about discussing and deliberating with key influencers and thought leaders on how to make our society positive and progressive.

Alphonse Prabhakar, IPS Bhaskar Rao, Authors and Artists such as Savio Rodrigues, Prakash Belawadi, RJ Prithvi and other noted luminaries.
Keynote speaker at the event, Achrafi believes that “The unconscious ways we have been living in, have become unsustainable. Every day, people are awakening to the emerging paradigm of conscious leadership – people who are ready to ask the big and important questions of who we are, how we show up, and where we want to go. It is #time4humanity.” “We are a very unique show, and it has been just one month into TheSfactor Talk Show, which Sameera and I founded on May 22, 2021. Leadership in today’s day and age has to be exclusively inclusive and that’s exactly what TheSfactor Talk Show is about,” says Entertainer, Host, Presenter, Motivational Speaker, Stand-up Comedian, Writer and Co-Founder of TheSfactor Talk Show – Shekhar Vijayan. “Diversity, Inclusivity and Leadership go hand-in-hand. Leadership is all about empathy.
