Nuggets of Management Wisdom #15

Leadership is all about inspiration, persuasion, trust, fairness, and transformation of ordinary to extra-ordinary.

Leadership can at times seem very simple yet at other times abstract. I often ask myself – what makes great leaders? Having observed some remarkable leaders in my life and also having read about many great leaders, I feel that despite the difference in leadership style there is a common thread running in between the methods and madness of all great leaders.

All great leaders inspire people to action, they have amazing powers to persuade people, they have immense trust in their people, they are fair when dealing with their people, and they are driven by a desire to transform anything ordinary to extraordinary.

I feel anyone can become a great leader if one practices to live these five virtues of great leadership everyday of one’s life.
