The Peregrination of Jasal Shah

Jasal, the market research expert expresses that he is someone who strongly believes in giving latitude to people for manning some important task; everyone should be allowed to bring the personal edge to its task or else they will lose the differentiating factors. In addition, he also keeps on telling himself including his team mates that the aim of the employees is to make clients’ goals their own and then execute it because that will definitely bring a difference.  His experience has taught him that when people have a motivated team, nothing would seem impossible.

Jasal comes from a research background and it immensely helped him understand the nitty-gritty of the industry and paved the way for an idea of Markelytics. In the beginning, the company was introduced as a reliable offshore MR agency. However, through the course of time, he has expanded company’s services and forayed into things that keep their clients happy and satisfied.

Leadership, Challenges and Inspiration

Jasal believes every leader should have the ability to filter leaders, identify them, mentor them and make them even greater leaders of their age. He wants to make more leaders because today’s challenges are more, competition is more and hence industries need more and more overseers. In the same breath, he confesses that it is a challenge to introduce enthusiastic leaders.  It is not that easy to be able to decipher any genetic configuration for a leader. People need to evaluate one on many factors, test him/her and observe its tact in difficult situations; challenging times and then only anyone can be able to find what industry is looking for.

Jasal acclaims, “My mother is my inspiration. She has given me the tenacious attitude and that’s why I have never given up easily in my life – stuck to the belief, made progression, changes and scaled to where things were envisioned. I still follow the same in my life and hopefully, someone will take this thought even further.”
