What is Leadership

When the world has moved from "Survival of Fittest" to the " Survival of Fastest" ,I would rather say " Excellence of the Competent " to the " Excellence of the Noisy" it becomes a clear internal war for many who believes in few ideologies like values,ethics,letting go of Individual credits for the team,Inclusive Growth etc.Time and again both in professional life and personal life every individual faces lots of challenges  when someone wants to live by these in practical life.Time and again many asked me what is leadership according to me and I always say " Its being a Role Model" .I thought I should dive deep more and highlight few points here for the benefit of the people who asked me this question time and again as I left the question unanswered.

Firstly one of the most important leadership quality is " Ethics". If one individual alters everything to come to the limelight , in spite of strict standards and governing laws then he or she is first out of the race.I always believe not only me I am sure everybody who understood leadership in the true sense will believe "leadership is not only about the destination but the path " 

Secondly "Inclusive Growth " . A leader cant be a person who always wanted to project his /her achievements (If truly so) even after and in the path and kill the rest.He or she shall always ensure the team comes out more than individual.I always say " Building Castles at the cost of hard workers Grave"

Thirdly " People Orientation" . A leader who doesn't  even know how to talk to individuals , I am not sure how will he or she truly pass on the value to the customer. These are basic etiquette if one has really gone through tough path to reach there they would empathize the persons like them who they see today and not insult them.If one insults the members in public it means their path is doubtful.

Fourthly " Consistency in Statements ". A leader should be consistent in statements one makes .He or she cannot be giving one definition for anything today and change it according to situation which breaks the trust.Its not only about what you commit/communicate in public its also about what you commit in private matters.

Fifthy " Transparency" . A leader should be transparent and neutral when it comes to decision making .A fair and neutral opportunity shall be given by looking at the path including the parameters  above before making any decisions.

Above all its being a role model by sheer hard work and not exploitation ,by true knowledge and not bogus and walking the talk.

Some times in life when one adopts all the above and when he /she  loses to many who doesn't even qualify in any of the above criteria it may be soul hurting at times and the question now is how to again start back from ground zero.

Its not only about the hurt and I am sure its more than that a question of "Natural Justice Existence"for those.

But true confidence is raising back time and again even after how many times one is being killed and mercilessly murdered by this society or the system.

When we lose trust on the path its when one loses the destination. When one knows the path is what true leaders have followed and in spite of that you have failed today trust me its not a fall and its a rise.

Top seven things that leadership candidates should think about!

Ever since the concepts of management got evolved the one phrase which would be undoubtedly accepted is “It’s not the volume but the value that matters”. This phrase becomes more apt in the leadership hiring process as it is purely a value transfer in terms of many parameters which is do with hard competencies ,soft competencies etc. Having been and continuing to be in the recruitment and more precisely in the leadership hiring industry in my experience the following are the seven key parameters which might be unstated but one as a candidate should keep in mind when we go through leadership hiring process.


Success is appreciated & equally failure lessons:
In my experience I have seen resumes and leadership candidates talking great about their achievements, projects success, driving company results etc. As much as these are really great in a span of close to decades of experience I am sure everyone would have made wrong decisions and seen failures as well. In my experience of evalu…

Our vehicle is yet to come!

It was two weeks back one early morning I got into a cab towards Chennai airport .The driver applied a sudden brake and after few jerks the journey became smooth .Like a typical day I was checking my mobile for messages and the driver suddenly opened up with this statement to me “This is what is being lucky all about”. Wondering what has happened I askedwhy and what do you mean? He asked me didn’t you notice the puppy dog which was about to be hit by our car was taken by the family of another Honda city car which came behind us. I said “No”. He said one statement “Would the puppy have ever imagined that from today it’s going to get a great family and meal from now on?” After casual conversations with him when I boarded the flight and I was re-thinking on the incident. What was about to happen first for the puppy was a great disaster but in few seconds it became a great wonder for life. On a relative scale its fraction of seconds in puppy’s life may be its years in people’s life. The key is …
