Here's a little insight on the founder chairman of Max India Ltd.
My leadership style: Delegative, participative
The leadership lesson I remember best: Spend disproportionate amount of time on recruiting and developing the best talent.
The political leader I admire the most: Lee Kuan Yew, former Prime Minister of Singapore, because he represents the perfect example in contemporary times of demonstrating results with clear strategy, execution, governance and high standards.
The business leader I admire the most: Sunil Bharti Mittal and Jack Welch because they have used luck, personal development strategy and execution to succeed.
A book or movie I would recommend on leadership: Patton, the movie. In books, it would be Vedanta.
The difference between a manager and leader: A leader needs to necessarily have ownership, be large hearted and be prepared to look medium to long term.
The worst thing a leader can do: Not being trusting and trustworthy.
My biggest test as a leader: Resisting ad hoc and unprofitable growth.
