"Life is simple and all great things are hidden in simple things and certainly not in great things"—Author
Simplified and elucidative exposition on various levels of leadership - self, interpersonal, societal and managerial - through a conversational tone is the hallmark feature of this book. Anyone who wants to explore, discover, modify and apply behavior, attitude, skill and knowledge to become a content and successful leader in thought, action or situation should read this book. The author has drawn from his long personal and professional experience, Gandhian philosophies, and writings of Lal Bahadur Shastri and saints of wisdom, to demystify the "mystical halo" around Leadership. This is not merely a prescriptive book. Here, the author, while on one hand rolls out a tried and tested framework for adoption by the self, on the other tries to be a friend and guide by the side of the reader, sharing anecdotes, experiences and learnings helping him/her in pursuit of becoming an effective leader.
The book deals with the following three areas of leadership exploration:

  • Personal effectiveness: all that a person needs to work at self-level
  • Interpersonal effectiveness: all that matters when a person is in contact with another person on and off the work world.
  • Leadership effectiveness: all challenges for enhancing their ability to inspire people when the reader is in a leadership role per se.
