Leadership knows no shortcuts. It comes through factors such as persistence, maturity, a global outlook and a smart workforce. Liqvid eLearning Services proves just that...
Occasionally I confront queries from laymen and laywomen asking me to identify India's upcoming leaders in e-learning. I maintain that the answer to the question is difficult yet agree that the best e-learning companies in India are to be found outside the North Indian belt, in Maharasthtra, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, amongst others. However, exceptions remain.
Personally, one of my favourite e-learning companies in North India is Liqvid E-learning, a Noida based organization that appears to have redefined the way e-learning is created and delivered. My choice for Liqvid comes after closely observing several e-learning companies in the NCR region spanning several years. And these are the key takes for my choice:
Bright minds: The company has some of the brightest e-learning talent in the industry. They know their job well.
An informal atmosphere: Unlike other e-learning companies in the region who remain transfixed in the quagmire of hierarchy and senior-junior tangle, Liqvid professionals do not find themselves alienated in either the PM group, the ID group or the graphics group. The vile trappings of power, position, and hierarchy give way to freedom and free-flowing communication between professionals.
Nonintrusive management: The management is comparitively non-intrusive and the senior management people do not sit "on top of the heads" of its workforce.
Non-politicized: There is no evidence of politics being a key take between the members of the workforce, unlike most e-learning companies in the region.
Note: Personally I have some great friends in Liqvid. And to cut a long story short these guys are equally adept at e-learning as they are in other creative pursuits like composing music, jokes and enabling the development of a ambience that is less prudish and more humane. They have helped me realize that life holds more in its bouquet -- finer sense and sensibility.
