Dr. Param Srikantia draws upon 20 years of leadership experience in six global conglomerates coupled with teaching and scholarly research on multiple continents. He has authored over 35 scholarly papers in management published or presented at conferences in the U.S., Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. Before joining the faculty at Baldwin Wallace University, Srikantia was a consultant at the World Bank, designing workshops for finance ministers of several countries. He has also facilitated leadership seminars to management teams of transnational organizations drawn from over 75 countries in a global leadership organization sponsored by the federal government. He has worked in human resources and management development roles at the Unilever Group, Arthur Andersen, the American Cyanamid Company and Lederle Laboratories and the Tata Group. He has taught at Case Western Reserve University, George Mason University, University of Iowa, Jamnalal Bajaj Institute in India and FAE Business School in Brazil. He is a former television host in India who is well acquainted with the art of energizing a live audience.

With a doctorate in organizational behavior and several master’s degrees (psychology, human resources and business administration), Srikantia has recently embarked on public seminars based on non-traditional ways of unleashing human potential that have now grown to a contagious level of popularity reaching several hundred thousand attendees in Boston, Chicago, Toronto, San Francisco, Washington DC, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and the New York metropolitan areas. They have attracted practicing managers, entrepreneurs, physicians, attorneys, social workers, nurses, psychotherapists, public policy practitioners, labor leaders and teachers. These ten public seminars embody an unusual form of education not currently available in most U.S. universities or corporations as they invoke very diverse methods for tapping into the deepest reservoirs of human potential. The Director of Program Planning for the international seminar organization, The Institute for Management Studies (IMS), Steven Daniel, Ph.D. (Cornell), equated Srikantia’s capabilities with those of seven legendary management educators and invited him to speak at the ABM conference of IMS featuring IMS partners from 26 cities across North America and Europe:

"Dr. Srikantia is one of the very best educators with whom IMS has worked," Daniel wrote. "This is saying a great deal, as IMS has been around since 1974 and has been fortunate to work with many remarkable people over the years, including Stephen Covey, Charles Handy, Peter Drucker, Michael Porter, David Ulrich, Vijay Govindrajan and Ram Charan to name just a few. As a thinker and educator, I believe that Dr. Srikantia occupies a secure place in this exclusive group."
