Ranjit Nair, Ph.D

Ranjit is a speaker, author, advisor and educator. In his role as a Senior Strategist with Price Associates and lead facilitator for The Complete Leader, he works with senior executives to implement a “potluck culture” where everyone brings their best to the table to create a culture of shared success.

As a former talent management executive, Ranjit has unique insight and the ability to act as a bridge between both traditional and new thinking about talent development. The foundation of his methodology is based on five cultural competencies that all companies must master in order to make their people their #1 differentiator:

  • Hire for fit
  • Create a culture of dialogue
  • Take money off the table
  • Innovate as a habit
  • Make work meaningful

Ranjit helps companies maneuver challenges in organizational development, talent management, talent acquisition, compensation and benefits, succession planning, change management, organizational culture, performance management and executive development.  

As a noted global business expert, Ranjit works with companies that are engaged in Asia, Europe and the U.S. His experience in global business includes global human capital management and organizational effectiveness, strategic leadership, functional oversight, and cultural inculcation.  

Ranjit received his Ph.D. from Capella University in Organization & Management. He is a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt, Certified Compensation Professional and Certified Change Integrator ™. He also holds a Certificate in Strategic Human Resource Management from Harvard Business School and a Senior Professional Human Resources certification. He is a member of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), World-at-Work, and the Academy of Management. Ranjit is the author of Potluck Culture: Five Strategies to Engage the Modern Workplace.

Ranjit lives in Boise with his wife Jiji, who is a nutritionist and wellness coach, his son Nikhil, daughter Nikita, and their Labradoodle, Ziggy. When he’s not traveling and meeting new people, he enjoys golf, yoga and soccer. 

“Ranjit has been my thinking partner and executive adviser for the past 2 years and during that period, as an ambitious 28 year-old manager aspiring to be a Vice President, the advice he gave me changed my life.  He is for real – the most thoughtful, informed and empathetic coach that’s also the most fun to talk to.”
