My leadership style
The political leader I admire the most
The business leader I admire the most
The leadership lesson I remember best
My father taught me a very valuable lesson: “Get a good group of managers around you and trust them.” Valuing people and relying on them became a big part of my approach to management.
A book or movie I would recommend on leadership
The difference between a manager and a leader
When you are a leader you work from the heart. A leader has a vision and behaves like an entrepreneur. As a manager, you work from the head and there is a certain aversion to risk taking.
Worst thing a leader can do
Demand others to tread a path that he is himself not prepared for.
