The Universal Inner Structure of Leaders

At the outset you can pin these down to some definitive qualities such as courage to decide, will power to persist, initiative to be a self starter, knowledge of self, ability to deal with people, and knowledge of the job to reach selflessness based on an ideal or vision.

All these are well taken and must exist in varying proportions in a leader. This discourse is set to comprehend the universal inner structure of a leader as out lined in Bhagwad Geeta.

The key is the characteristic inner structure of a leader that should harmonise his thoughts, words and deeds. A leader who can achieve this ubiquitous synergy in this universal inner structure rises above the mill of the run leaders. He can operate from a level of self confidence borne out of his character to achieve the impossible. He can dispassionately and objectively observe the world around him in a holistic manner and initiate his thoughts to spur significant changes in the organisation.

Such leaders are above petty politicking at the work place and can operate under conditions of ambiguity and uncertainty to evolve cogent answers to complex work problems. Once this universal structure is in place, rest becomes a natural function of this trait. Such leaders develop the courage to walk the edge, have strong will power, can deal effectively with people and develop ideal visions for their organisations and the people.

Somehow in our quest for money, name or fame we disturb the fine balance required to develop this inner quality. That is when the doom begins and despite good short term results we sacrifice the long term sustainable leadership position
