What makes for great leadership? Can it be learnt? If so, what are the essential value and qualities that go into its making? By studying the lives, successes and failures of some of mankind and greatest leaders, the author identifies thirteen qualities of leadership: Communication, Humility, Teamwork, Compassion,Integrity,Training and Competence,Man-management,Vision. Courage, Purpose, Decision-making, Stamina. The importance of each of these qualities is highlighted by examples from the lives of outstanding leaders. In a time of increasing ethical ambivalence, the new chapter on J. R. D. Tata and business ethics is particularly illuminating. It brings out the wide canvas on which this titan of Indian industry chose to both define and practice ethics with remarkable business success. The instances of great leaders chosen by the author are drawn from different walks of life and the rich insights and understandings offered by the book would benefit leaders in every field of human endeavor, whether it be business, military, public service or education.
