Buy On Amazon
What can we learn from Mahatma Gandhi as far as leadership is concerned? Mahatma Gandhi needs no introduction. An icon revered by millions across the world, he led a country to freedom through methods and principles never used before. What was it about Gandhi that made him an icon? How did a frailordinary man bring about a revolution? And how did he manage to rope in the poor, the working class, the elite and the intelligentsia to work together? In this one-of-a-kind self-help book, Virender Kapoor analyses Gandhi’s methods and derives leadership lessons from his life, explaining how readers can successfully employ these in their own lives. He reveals how Gandhi carefully analysed situations, the precursor of SWOT analysis before formulating the best way to deal with them. It was thus that he formulated the idea of Satyagraha. He also shows that Gandhi understood the power of emotional appeal and used sincerity rather than empty rhetoric to maximize on this. In other words, he ‘walked the talk’. These and other strategies by Gandhi provide important lessons for leaders of any era, in any capacity. The key, he reveals, is to adapt, rather than adopt, Gandhi’s philosophy in action.
