Unacademy - Leadership Principles

  • Impatience for Action not Results. Unacademy Leaders don’t shy away from taking action and making changes. They are impatient about taking action but not results. They know that if the fundamentals are solid and if continuous action is taken towards improvement then the Results will come. The score will take care of itself.
  • Obsession starts with the “comma”. Unacademy Leaders are obsessed about getting not only the bigger stuff right but also the smaller stuff right. How do we reply to our mails. How do we write. How do we communicate to our Educators. Do we point out when the comma is not in the right place? Yes. Unacademy Leaders do.
  • Showing not telling. Unacademy Leaders are hands on and they train their team by showing the team how something is done and not by telling. Leaders get involved and help empower the team to the next level.
  • Insist on the Highest Standards. Leaders have relentlessly high standards. Many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar and driving their teams to deliver high quality products, services, and processes. Leaders ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.
  • Learning and Unlearning. Unacademy Leaders constantly learn and become better. They also unlearn the behaviours that they might have picked up due to pre conditioning. They know unlearning is as important as learning. They understand that Mastery is a process and not a destination.
  • Unconventional Thinking. What makes Unacademy Leaders stand out is their unconventional approach to problem solving. They come up with innovative ideas and solutions that are game changing and revolutionary.
  • Sports Team. Not a Family. Unacademy Leaders understand that they are a part of a Sports Team and not a family. A family tolerates everything unconditionally. A Sports Team gives chances but eventually if the attitude, performance or the quality of execution is a mismatch then the Team parts ways with the non A+ members.
  • Overtly Transparent. Unacademy Leaders are transparent with their teams regarding the numbers. Regarding the good or the bad. Information is not concealed. It’s openly communicated to everyone.
  • Leaders create Leaders. It is very important for Unacademy Leaders to empower and create more Leaders like them. That’s done through motivating the team members, empowering them, energising them, having no bias towards any of them, constantly help them learn and more.
