4 Questions Emotionally Intelligent Leaders Must Ask



I am a student of life, entrepreneurship, and humanity. As a child, I lived through war and famine; as a college student, I worked as a janitor on the graveyard shift; as a serial entrepreneur since the early 90s, I have been traveling the cutting edge world of innovation, technology, and global business; as an author for two decades, I have been exploring the intersection of science and humanities; and as a traveler, I have been roaming around the globe with utter gratitude.

In my late teens, I left my father’s home in Dhaka, Bangladesh for U.S. to study. It was August of 1986 when I just finished my first (and rapid) summer semester at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I was a student of the College of Engineering studying Electrical Engineering. After paying my tuition fee for summer and fall, I had $700.00 to survive, get educated, and move forward with my life! Since then, I have traveled many miles and my journey continues.

I hold a strong belief that it is through knowledge sharing that we may provide the greatest clarity on how to improve our collective future. I am passionate about nature, people, culture, music, and design, and love to cook.
