Self-Learning & Empowerment Through Leadership

Good Essays
SELF-LEARNING & EMPOWERMENT THROUGH LEADERSHIP William Shakespeare says in his famous play Twelfth Night, “Some people are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them”. If we slightly modify this statement, it also goes true with leadership. So we can say that, “some people are born leaders, some become leaders through their achievements and some have leadership thrust upon them”. Some people in this world are born leaders. It is engrained in their blood. They cannot but choose to be a leader. They have all the fine proportions and qualities that befit a leader. History is replete with many great leaders who showed light to common people. For example Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata an Indian industrialist was a great leader who founded the ‘Tata Group’, India 's biggest conglomerate company. He devoted himself to bringing to fruition four of his key ideas: setting up an iron and steel company, a world-class learning institution, a one-of-a-kind hotel and a hydroelectric plant. Similarly Dhirajlal Hirachand Ambani was an Indian rags-to-riches business tycoon who founded ‘Reliance Industries’. Dhirubhai has been among the select few to be figured in the Sunday Times list of top 50 businessmen in Asia. Also Mahatma Gandhi & Subhash Chandra bose were the two great leaders of Indian-subcontinent. They did a lot of efforts for the social and economic uplift of our nation. In the various field these people worked & now being icon to all of us, but the one thing is common in these great leaders is ‘a big dream with big idea’, the idea which has power of total evolution of the nation. No one can deny the fact that today’s world also need great leaders for it’s prosperity and peace, irrespective of the fact that today people are more aware of their rights and obligations due to the spread of education and information technology. Today, our modern world is in need of great leaders as it needed them in the past. Leadership is an art, not a science. A

As everyone clearly aware of the whole process of TQM whereby formerly it was only applied in manufacturing sectors most likely into supply chain, automobile, machinery and transportation.

    In high school, I used to teach young children at a Hindi school every Sunday. Being in that environment and seeing how much of a positive impact I have on these young kids inspired me to lead in other aspects in my life. Having the opportunity to shape and mold these children into great role models, really gave me an insight on how important it is to have a role model/leader to look up to. That experience really sparked my interest in becoming a leader. I think being able to directly impact someone’s life for their betterment is empowering. Overall, I think all leaders are committed to make their group, organization, company,…

    Leaders are often expected to be well-rounded individuals and have few weaknesses. In reality, most leaders only have expertise in specific areas. Experience and college education, do not guarantee that one will success in all sectors. I noticed when I attempt to become an expert in all aspects of my life; I place myself at risk by spreading myself too thin, which leads to becoming ineffective. I believe it is important to recognize my strengths and weaknesses. After reading Learning Leadership: The five fundamentals of becoming an exceptional leader, I learned that an excellent leader must master many skills to be an effective leader. One of the most important skills is the ability to learn. Learning Leadership has taught me that leaders…
