Collective Leadership

November 30, 2010


Leadership has become a very generic term these days used by everyone to flaunt himself before others. Most connect it to the “social influence”, Corporates also rates and values the candidates on their leadership qualities in interviews. A lot of us confuse leadership with dominance, bossism or holding the flag.

Now if a leader is strict, dominating, propagating his beliefs and ideas and philosophies of life on others. We would need a barge pole to maintain safe distance before as he gets unpredictable. But on the other hand, as also said ” Leadership and Learning are indispensable from each other”. A Leader is a very humble person, who is always ready to serve his team and is easily approachable.

True leaders have a desire to take others to the top with them, and are not afraid of competition. They are not struck with jalousie and panic when some of their followers become leaders themselves. If you are a true leader, you should encourage your followers to become leaders themselves. That is what a true leader is all about.

Leaders are mentors with a servant’s heart, You may be doing well and have a list of people listening to your advices, but that alone does not make you a leader. People are not numbers you can just add on your email list, down line or your company. They are people with dreams and goals like yours. As a true leader, it should be your goal to lead people to where they want to be, very well said by Sylviane Nuccio.

A Leader is a wonderful person who does not lead but invites every other person to lead in a collective team. This way the participation increases and we witness the marvelous and wonderful events taking place and that is how the impossible becomes possible. We can grow horizontally and vertically only when we are collective, united. And I wish everybody becomes a true Collective Leader to understand and participate in the process of Growth.

“To lead people, walk beside them … As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate … When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves!'” – Lao Tse


Connect the Dots . . .

November 27, 2010

On one side we talk of Supreme Human Beings and on the other we blame the current generation commenting they are going crazy and start doubting the future of our country.

A small exercise defines our aura of positives and negatives around us by listing down 10 names of people we come across other than our family members followed by up an down arrow corresponding to their names where Up arrow identifies the set of people with healthy, inspirational or motivating and on the other hand Down arrow representing the set of people with dominating characteristics, demotivating and subdued personalities. This way one can also identify and analyze their core circle and improve upon..Thus turning all the Dreams into Reality.

Now it also becomes important to connect to the source to which we are born. Our parents, honestly tell me how many of us can answer these questions: Where my father was born, Where did he had his primary education, Where did he go for higher studies, what kind of friend circle he had, Where was his first job and his profile, what salary did he draw, how did he grew in the corporate world establishing his legacy, When did he get married, How did he manage his personal and professional life. When you were young and were adamant how he fulfilled all your demands. So my dear friends to grow further we have to connect to the source first to lead life with a Grace.. Unless we are connected to our source we cannot understand our society we live in..

I met many students in Universities and Business Schools and to my surprise the spark to connect the dots was missing. This is a very concern area. No doubt everybody want a good start in their career and are looking high up in the sky but the basics need to be very clear in their mind, unless a strong foundation is laid we cannot build palaces.. How they would manage their career in the corporates.

We all have come with one expiry date which is unknown so this is the time Awake up friends and start inward journey.

““It has been the way of human beings that he wants to understand everything through reasoning. This is correct on his part because his awareness has not yet awakened. When his awareness is limited and when he is searching the proof of everything through his intellect, it is difficult for him to adopt some other means, which are outside the scope of reasoning”.-Dr N.D.Srivastava
