PM enlightened by PC

The Prime Minister Manmohan Singh showers lot of praise on the Home Minister P Chidambaram. The PM said that he derived “immense” support from his “Enlightened Leadership”. At a function in Chidambaram’s Sivaganga Lok Sabha constituency the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh said, “Since 2004, I have derived immense support from his enlightened leadership as Finance Minister and then as Home Minister. Whatever task is given to him, he performs with super aplomb”. The PM also said, “He and I have been colleagues since 1990s and have worked hand in hand. I worked as Finance Minister when he was the Commerce Minister”. » Indian Express News
» Enlightened Leadership Views:
It is really a good thing that Enlightened Leadership is reaching the political space of this country. And Enlightened Leadership can transform all the political organizations towards better leadership, and this can eventually lead us towards “Enlightened Nationalism” and “Enlightened Globalism”.

Learning Leadership Lessons !!

How to choose a Leader? What is true Leadership? These are daunting tasks in life. Life is a continuous opening of opportunities. It throws open before us ample choices. And leadership is also one such choice. It is in fact a choice-less choice. Choosing things sometimes in life is as difficult as choosing leadership. First and foremost thing about leadership is that it is a great responsibility. It is being responsive and responsible. Leadership is not possible in isolation and, therefore, it has a great meaning only in context and relation. How to choose leadership is a basic question? Let us ponder on these alternatives and possibilities. Responsive leadership is better than reactive leadership. Proactive leadership is better than reactive leadership and responsive leadership. Balanced and total leadership is far better than reactive, responsive, and proactive leadership. Enlightened Leadership is a leadership of transcendence. It simply means that there are no more divisions. It e…

Anna inspires a Social Change

The whole nation is gripped in a wave called Anna. Thousands of supporters - boys, girls, young, and old are all on the roads to make this change possible. The whole issue is of corruption and a law called “Janlokpal” which will help reduce corruption in India to a greater extent. The Home Minister says that it is not a panacea. True !! But nothing can be a panacea unless the very character of the people in power changes. If that is so then why government “Lokpal”, which is a weak law compared to the one proposed by the civil society called the “Janlokpal”, is being introduced in the parliament? There are always two aspects of a social framework of any country. If the character of a person does not change with love then it has to be changed through the law. Jimi Hendrix says, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace”. Nothing can replace love. But is it there? See the arrogance of some of the ministers of the government. Just look at their speeches…

Question @ IMF Leadership

It is really shameful that the IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been accused of assaulting a maid in a luxury New York City hotel. He has been denied a bail and has been sent to a jail. This act has sent shock-waves throughout the world. He was a man who was in charge of overseeing the world economy and was tipped to be France’s next President. His arrest and subsequent jail is also extremely embarrassing for the IMF. Apart from dealing with a leadership crisis the IMF is now facing serious questions about whether it let Strauss-Kahn off too lightly in 2008 after he was caught in an extra-marital affair with an economist who was his subordinate. There are persistent rumors afloat inside the IMF that he often made unwanted sexual advances to other women during his tenure with IMF. 
Why is it that many nationally and internationally reputed leaders are involved in sex scandals? We have been witnessing many such cases. It is found that many leaders have unfulfilled sexual life and th…

Deepak on Enlightened Leadership

For years now Deepak Chopra is teaching a course on “Enlightened Leadership” at Nothwestern University’sKellogg School of Management. After the consequences of global recession and extreme political unrest for the last couple of years he strongly feels that it is now time for a different kind of leadership. He has been emphasizing the importance of an enlightened leadership to business leaders at Ernst & Young, Pepsi and Cisco. He strongly believes that the U.S. leadership has become ineffective and needs a change in the leadership domain. He feels that enlightened leadership will be most appropriate for the current economic and social situation that the country is facing. He feels that the U.S. corporate and political leadership has almost lead to bankruptcy. He feels that we should nurture leadership that aims at unlocking the highest human potential. He says that the Wall Street has almost broken because it succumbed to greed, corruption, and pure speculation without any value…

Leadership of New Millennium !!

Congratulations, President Barack Obama !! This is what you deserve from the people around the world who love peace and who condemn terrorism. The whole credit always goes to the Leader and his brave Team. Both deserve attention and respect from the entire world. Good job done !! The whole team under him deserve kudos for the end of Osama Bin Laden. Barack Obama truly deserved the Nobel Prize conferred on him. This is only a beginning of an end of terrorism. And of course, a very important beginning. Only 40 minutes and 40 commandos and the whole job got done so well. What a feat? What an achievement? This goes without saying that what President Bush couldn’t do, President Obama could do. This is the differentiation. This is what is called the leadership with a difference. This is the leadership edge. There are two kinds of leaders. One, the leader who demands respect. Two, the leader who commands respect. The brave President Obama falls in the category of leaders who command respect.…
