A Better Leader needs a Big Heart and Mind

Recently I was so very obsessed by the thought that One part of Our team is over producing while the other is under producing... the obsession took me to the ground building where I really wanted to list out everything that was going wrong with this other part of my mind and soul.... The scrum took a shape of a coroner's autopsy and though the outcome of the meeting was pleasing the proceedings were so very not. It takes a Big Heart to Go back and Action on the Autopsy specially if it is done for your own Team. The way this was handled and actioned later tells me that a Leader need to have a Great Heart to listen and a Great Mind to Action...

It was not the only incident in the same day that took the thought to reach in my mind as a Value. I was watching the new series on Zee Televisions for the Talent Hunt named SaReGaMa 2007 and while the Judges were posting huge comments in the most Idiotic way and at times to such an extent where Humiliation of the contestants were left miles back.... The utter Leadership Act came in front when Asha Bhosale the living legends motivated the contestants inspite of being critised. This very fact comes in the same row when she was not well treated by one of the existing panel members...

Leadership is about Showing a Big Heart to accept as it is and still Motivating the Team

Leadership is actioning the proceedings when drench is covering you


And ofcourse Leadership is about preserving and preaching the Values that are practised...
