The Child is father of the Man,' wrote the famous poet William Wordsworth. Kalyan Sagar render poetic justice to what was metaphorical in the poem, easily and effortlessly revealing an array of subtle yet spectaular lessons in leadership that we can learn by observing children. This book reads like a 'leadership fairy tale' replete with fascinating examples of highly successful and legendary business leaders who retained and enacted their 'childlike' character in different situations. This includes recent rags-to-riches stories from across the world. In its insightful comparison of the acts of children with many 'grown-up' attitudes and actions, this book may well set a new direction to Eric Berne's Transactional Analysis in management studies.
