Effective Leadership Through Cricket Analogy (Part - II)

What is leadership?

Leadership is about transformational change which is a paradigm change. Therefore, the attributes of a leader are:

Courage: 

-Courage to take the tough decisions

-Courage to go against the vast majority of nay-sayers

-Courage to be unconventional 

-Courage to sacrifice (to be selfless) and the second attribute is:

Character: 

It stands by a leader in the hour of tough decisions

It also helps to efface a big opportunity towards success in consideration of preserving the values of a team and the involved firm.

  Narayan Murthy, IT Industrialist and cofounder of Infosys 

It reminds me a quote on character. Thus said, “When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost”. – Billy Graham


The key factor of leadership is that, whatever a leader drives to achieve should be through an inner self-confidence. Somewhere lurking underneath in one-self is self-confidence which says “I know what I am doing and I know how it works”. A leader should portray this effervescent character because team members tend to see through very quickly if a leader does not have that innate self-belief and ability  thereupon to convey the team members that what you think has a great probability to be right. If such a character is not evident enough in a leader, then it is very hard to lead any team in any profession. Leadership is about holding on to trueness of the leader and not to appraise something that out of the character. How to state a leader? When cruising along in a project, the leader should place the team at front and when things get tangled in to chaos the team should be shielded from criticism. To be precise, leader should be ready enough to take the blame for team’s underperformance. By doing so, it leads to the formation of trust within the team. Trust unifies a team and instigates the team members to fight for the leader’s cause not to strive for an individual excellence. 

“To lead people, one must act on instinct”. – David Gower
