Learn The Qualities of Leadership
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader” –John Adams. Leadership plays a big role in directing not only an organisation but entire nation and economy on the path of progress. Leaders – made or born. Researchers believe that good leaders are made not born. How? Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training and experience (Jago, 1982). This book identifies that successful leaders share basic leadership qualities like compassion, wisdom, leading change, leading by example, integrity, humanity, commitment, communication skills, passion, positivity, determination, charisma, honesty, courage, competency, sincerity, confidence, wisdom, compassion, analytical skills, decision making skills, go-getter attitude, long-term vision, time management and stress management skills. By inculcating the above mentioned qualities anyone can become a great leader.
This book also contains various topics like skills of great business leaders, leadership theories, leadership myths and realities, various leadership styles, articles, quotes, poems, cases which will further help the reader to enhance their leadership style. Finally, it is based on the fundamental principle that great leaders always focus on long-term strategy rather than short-term gain as they always believe that “Leadership is as much about defeat as it is about success.”
