My leadership style

The leadership lesson I remember the best
A corporate leader has to look beyond the finite universe of one's own business. The challenges of the nation belong just as much to business leaders as they do to administrators.

The political leader I admire the most
Manmohan Singh. With economic liberalisation, he moved India to a global arena and introduced a mood of economic confidence in Indians.

The business leader I admire the most
My father Prathap C. Reddy, a compassionate humanitarian, a visionary and a true karma yogi.

A book/movie I would recommend on leadership
Bhagawad Gita.

What I think is the difference between a manager and a leader
A manager manages a team, while a leader builds future leaders.

All good managers aren't good leaders

- As told to Nitya Varadarajan
