My leadership style

Delegative, Participative and Authoritative

The political leader I admire the most

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

The business leader I admire the most

Many. Difficult to single out one name.

The leadership lesson I remember the best

Always lead from the front during times of extreme adversity.

A book/movie I would recommend on leadership

The Bridge on the River Kwai.

The difference between a manager and a leader

A leader has a clear sense of direction and takes responsibility for the future. A manager executes in the present.

All good managers are good leaders


As told to N.Madhavan
