What I learnt from DLF’s K P Singh

This post is in continuation of my What I Learnt from series (see here)

KP Singh is the Chairman and CEO of DLF Ltd, India’s largest real estate company.


What I learnt from him:You can prosper in business only if your partners and associates prosper along with you.

In his book “Whatever the Odds“, K P Singh writes “What we achieved at DLF is a miracle in business terms.DLF had no money when it started.More interestingly,ordinary farmers ended up financing DLF to take it to being a leader in its field.I remembered my father-in-law’s philosophy while dealing with farmers:’When you do business with someone they also should prosper with you.If this is a part of your business philosophy and practice, partners will do anything for you.’
