The leadership lesson I remember best
Building an organisation based on a strategy of differentiation and challenging the status quo. I have used this approach in my entrepreneurial journey.
The political leader I admire the most
Mahatma Gandhi for his deep sense of purpose and his uniquely differentiated approach to addressing challenges.
The business leader I admire the most
Jack Welch for his ability to challenge the conventional wisdom of hierarchial management by promulgating the concept of a “boundary less and networked organisation”.
A book/movie I would recommend on leadership
Winners Never Cheat by Jon Huntsman.
What I think is the difference between a manager and a leader
Leaders own responsibilities, delegate and set objectives. They set an example, and share success with their teams. Managers are task-oriented.
The worst thing a leader can do
To feel insecure and recruit team members who are less competent.
