Let’s get to know Abhijeet, a little bit better!

Name: Abhijeet Ranade
Title: Administrator

ये एडमिन है ये सब जानते है! 

If you ever want to know what’s going on at OGenie, Abhijeet is your man. 
Holding the fort, Abhijeet is the silent pillar of the organisation, the go-to guy, who get things done even while he is in Mumbai and the team is in Indore. Calm and easy-going, Abhijeet understands even though he is behind the scene, then too he is at the core.

Let’s talk Work

What does a typical day for you at OGenie look like?

Well, my day begins and ends surrounded by people. I’m the one who has to remain connected with all- the systems, clients, vendors, Geniuses, the founders. 
किसी का कभी भी बुलावा आ सकता है so my working days are pretty atypical. 

What do you enjoy about being an administrator at OGenie?

What I enjoy most about my role here is managing the details. Being the key person I have to ensure the office runs smoothly and I believe I play my role well to support my team. Also, I enjoy organising events and at OGenie we celebrate often so it’s a lot of work and pressure to make every new event better than the previous one :P

What according to you is your most significant contribution?

As an admin, I work with a lot of people and sometimes the relationship goes beyond work. It is here where I need to find a balance.
Distinguishing is one of my significant contributions. Keeping it balanced.


Let’s Talk Administration 

What would say is the most challenging part of the administrative role?

Most people think being an admin is an easy job. I’d like to say it’s not just an admin, it’s about adding respect and value to the organisation and its people. 
Prioritizing tasks is one of the key challenges. As an admin one needs to understand what tasks need to be done at the very moment and what can be kept on hold.

What skills are most important to you in an administrative assistant?

I’d say people & organisational skills- communication & connection.

What are some of the biggest challenges for a person in this position?

Being an administrative assistant means you’re pretty much guaranteed to have to handle some stressful situations now and then. Also, administrative assistants often interface closely with the individuals for whom they work, it is essential to be positive, professional and polite at all times. A keen eye for detail is also important. 


Let’s get Personal

You come across as a quiet person? How are as a person you beyond work?
I’m actually the same. The way I’m here is the way I’m outside these walls. I enjoy living my life and my work, my interests, my family, my friends I enjoy it all. I take things as they come. No hangups.

What inspired you lately?
I’m in constant contact over a lot of things with Ankit Sir & Vivek Sir. The way they handle situations not only this time but always, how they accept it and work around it. 

But what inspired me this time is how they stood for each of us. Everyone is going through a tough time and sometimes personal matters take over but they understand it, show patience and support and I feel happy that being at the centre of the organisation I know a lot of those issues and seeing our founders deal it so well I learnt a lot.

A quote you live by

भगवद गीता में लिखा है 
श्रेयान्स्वधर्मो विगुण: परधर्मात्स्वनुष्ठितात् |
स्वभावनियतं कर्म कुर्वन्नाप्नोति किल्बिषम् ||

It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with imperfection.
