Universal Leadership

While pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Engineering, I studied a subject called Fundamentals of Management. A wonderful concept learnt from that subject was- "Management is Universal". That is, right from an NGO to high end corporations and from a restaurant to an airline, management is everywhere and at every level of the organizational hierarchy. And why I consider this concept as "wonderful" is because it is relatively simple, we go through it everyday, we manage things everywhere every moment but still don't realise it until we 'Read' it.

The same applies to Leadership, but with a small difference. Management is inherently present everywhere, but leadership- "You have to instil it Boss!" There's not much of a rocket science involved, in fact, it is pretty simple, while you are managing something, just do it in the best possible manner, in a way better than no one ever did, in a way so excellent and so impeccable that you become an example, an inspiration for others and before you know it- "You start LEADING".

After reading- 'The Leader who had no title' by Robin Sharma, I realised that you don't need to be the CEO or any top management position holder to portray Leadership. Even at the 'seemingly' unimportant designations, you can inspire others simply by doing what you do in the best possible manner and moreover, staying inspired by your ultimate goal in life- Being the absolute best!

We cannot even imagine how many creative initiatives we can take to condition our smallest of passions and make our professions even more interesting. And furthermore, we also can't imagine the extent to which our creative initiatives can inspire others.
So this new year 2014, stop thinking that you are ordinary, stop thinking that your work is unimportant and stop thinking that you are too young or too old to do something significant. But start feeling that YOU CAN LEAD AS YOU ARE, WHEREVER YOU ARE & AT WHATEVER YOU DO.

Aim for Nothing but the Peak!
