Good Morning all.
Today I would like share some interesting and motivating points about my QA Manager Venkata Seshagiri. Whenever I think of him, the first thing that comes into my mind is his “Ever fading smile”. He is such a great human, who wishes everyone with his smile. He is Person with quality background.
He is a professional path maker, protecting shield, guiding force, fire extinguisher, a work wheel greaser, a motivator, a pencil pusher, a role model, and if necessary, a disciplinarian in our QA Department.
In a family, father plays the crucial role in laying the foundation to the future of family members, in the similar way My QA Manager is like a father of our QA Department who is the base of Quality of any product that is produced from our organization.
Normally in many Organization’s QA Managers/Project Managers do to lot of circus to achieve the trust of their Director/VP and also from their sub-ordinates. But frankly speaking, Giri’s nature is not that. He is very good in the way he is.
Traits that I like in My QA Manager are:
Ever Fading Smile.
A smile can stop tears, stop a frown, ease ones pain, shed light on sorrow, make you blush, even fill one with excitement. The things a smile can do are truly limitless. Every ones smile can cause such different positive reactions in so many different people. The simple greatness of a smile is truly remarkable. It’s true… some of the best things in life are free, yet priceless.
I heard these words in my childhood, but after seeing GIRI, I started believing . He is such a person, who conveys almost everything with his sweet smile. Daily once I meet or talk to him to grab that lovely smile.
Excellent Interactive & Communication Skills.
Communication is an important facet of life. Communication skills are essential in all spheres of life. Every day, in many ways, we communicate with other people.
Giri style of communication & interaction with Team members is very impressive. He has the ability to communicate comfortably with people at all levels of the team & organization about the project. He conveys the message that he want to convey in clear & polite way. Basing on the requirement, he used to engage with different people in different ways in order to convey the message.
Punctual in conferences & meetings.
Many managers don’t have this trait. Giri is very punctual in almost all the areas like coming to Office, attending meetings, taking up client calls, etc. Being on time consistently shows everyone around you that you are the master of your life. It demonstrates foresight — the ability to predict possible hang-ups — and adaptability — the ability to change your plans to accommodate those hang-ups.
Great Technical Forte.
He is not only good at management skills; he is also strong at technical aspects. He has got adequate experience to smoothly run the Organizational issues. He is a High Qualified Professional. He has got adequate knowledge on different domains.
Great Decision Maker.
In every project there are few crucial decisions which have to be taken on correct time.If any decision has to be taken Giri used to take the team mates opinion, if it’s fine used to implement it. He hasn’t got nature to take his own decisions as he like. Whatever decision he takes he used to present to team if they feel its fine used to implement it.
Sense of fairness in dealing with people and issues.
Giri is very expert in dealing the co workers and also the issues that come in the way. He used to handle them with cool mind, without going under any pressure. He know how to handle the bulls in the organization without getting into any arguments or clashes.
Involvement in the team tasks.
Giri is not only a good manager; he is also a great team player. He used to take up the whole responsibility on his shoulders, without giving burden to anyone. Working in team is always a fun. Whenever any team mate requires help, he used to stretch his hand to help them.
keeps track of all the QA activities in all the projects.
He is a person, who strives for the Quality. Quality in work, resources, actions, out come, everything. He will interact with every individual in the QA Department and finds out what happening and provides suggestions for the better results.
It’s fun to Work.
The main quality that I like in Giri is the way he see the problem or any task that has to be done. He is very cool under pressure. It’s really a great experience to work with him. He used to tell “Don’t worry Prawin, by birth no one is scientist, as the days progress you will learn”. He never shows disinterest towards work. This is one of the common qualities in both of us. I like Work N joyinG.
Consistency in Behavior.
Consistency is a core concept of personality. Giri is very consistent with his behavior. He treats and receives everyone equally. It doesn’t matter what’s the situation, environment, person, task he will be same. The way he interacts in the morning will be same in the evening time too.
Allows others to get credit for the positive outcomes.
In any organization, everyone tries to dominate others to get to top or get the credit. It happens at every level in organization. There are very few individuals who work, but expect nothing in return in terms of name, fame, reorganization, etc. Giri is one such a person, who works rigorously but allows others to get the credit for the Positive Outcomes.
Apart from all these traits, there is one more important quality which i like in him i.e “Simplicity”. Normally managers try to show-off infront of others, but no my Giri. His life stle is very simple and plain. He is to talk to every individual it can be frsher or experienced, find out their problems and used to give advice to them. In the evening time, he used to join for coffee.
As per my knowledge, He is a good manager, highly organized, and has excellent communication skills; Giri have the ability to interact with all the levels, various groups/departments in our organization. The most important quality that I have seen in him is the ability to properly identify the RIGHT people needed to perform the quality tasks. The manager does not have to be able to perform all the tasks needed, but he/she should be able to assemble a department that can and then lead them to accomplish the company’s quality objectives/goals.
Venkata Seshagiri is a successful manager who keeps everything running smoothly in our Organization. A great manager must possess all of the qualities that my Giri have, to make a business or program run smoothly and achieve its goals.
It’s really a great Opportunity and Honour to Work with Giri.
