.. Vision ..
Shimla, Jan 3: Former president Hon'ble A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Saturday emphasized on the need for creative leadership in various disciplines."There is a need for creative leadership in different disciplines exercising the vision to change the traditional role from the commander to the coach, from the manager to the mentor...and from one who demands respect to one who facilitates self-respect," he said.

What Needs to Be Done:
Successful leaders don't start out asking, "What do I want to do?" They ask, "What needs to be done?" Then they ask, "Of those things that would make a difference, which are right for me?" They don't tackle things they aren't good at. They make sure other necessities get done, but not by them. Successful leaders make sure that they succeed! They are not afraid of strength in others. Andrew Carnegie wanted to put on his gravestone, "Here lies a man who knew how to put into his service more able men than he was himself."
What is the relationship between leaders and followers?
I see leaders as change agents who guide their followers onto new heights, while along the way, they develop and grow their followers. A leader's two driving goals should be make the organization a success and that if the leader should leave, then she has enough trained and developed people to fulfill her shoes.
