The leadership lesson I remember best
Don't go crazy during the good times, and neither become despondent during a downturn.
The political leader I admire the most
A book or movie I would recommend on leadership
Chak de India.
The difference between a manager and a leader
I don't think the two are mutually exclusive, though it's also true that while all managers can't be leaders, all leaders are managers.
My biggest test as a leader was
When I took charge of the company after my father's assassination. Overnight, I had to not just take charge of the company but also understand it. I was expected to have all the answers.
The worst thing a leader can do
Not provide a sense of security through leadership, especially during lean times.
