Ravi Prasad
Executive Chairman, The Himalaya Drug Company

My leadership style

The political leader I admire the most
Mahatma Gandhi

The business leader I admire the most
Steve Jobs

The leadership lesson I remember the best
When you see a person with ability and passion, hire the resource even If there is no immediate position, create one or give them the freedom to choose

A movie I would recommend on leadership
12 Angry Men

The difference between a manager and a leader
A leader is a change agent who performs a transformational role. A manager's role is transactional; to break down the leader's long-term vision into simpler, short-term achievable targets

All good managers are not good leaders

As told to K.R. Balasubramanyam
