Identify the leader within – Brig.Rajiv Divekar(Retd.)

The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already. – John Buchan

Insightful as it is, this aphorism needs to be modified to suit the 21st century. It can instead be said that- The task of each one is not to seek greatness in others but to recognize it within self, for it is there already. The task is to recognize one’s ability to lead one’s self and others if the need shall arise. Generation Y desperately needs not a Nehru but the belief that a Nehru is rooted deep within them.

A manager today has to lead, meet targets and also to be successful in creating a second line of leaders. As citizens of the new global village one needs to be prepared to smoothly step in the leader’s shoes if the need arises. The qualities of a leader: strong moral fibre, vision, determination and focus to transform that vision to reality is within reachable grasp of everyone.

The Jasmine revolution was started by average people who wanted to make a difference. If each of us recognizes our inherent strength and ability to lead, to take command we can move mountains. Not long ago the ‘Lead India’ campaign extolled this strength that is innate in each of us.

Having recognized this need how does one hone one’s self into a leader?

The most essential requirement would be ‘character building’. All other skills like effective communications, motivation amongst others would be easy to inculcate once a strong moral conscious coupled with the desire to be proactive is established. These two would drive you to have vision; they would fuel your passion for every activity that you engage in.

Marianne Williamson’s prose explains this belief well:

“We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberate others.”

So, see yourself as a leader, strengthen your character and develop your skills relentlessly to excel as you were meant to. That is the essence of leadership.(The writer is director,SIMS)

1. What are the essential components of leadership according to the writer? Justify with examples from the text.
2. If you were a manager of the new global village, how would you strengthen your character and develop your leadership skills?

II  Read the following passage and answer the questions given below:                                     5×2=10

A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor

to take over the business. Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he

decided to do something different.

He called all the young executives in his company together. He said, “It is time for me to

step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you. I am going to

give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED.

I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what

you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring,

and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went

home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and

he planted the seed. Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about

three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants

that were beginning to grow.

Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks

went by, still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have

a plant and he felt like a failure. Six months went by — still nothing in Jim’s pot.

Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing .Jim didn’t say anything to his

colleagues, however, he just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed

to grow.

A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants

to the CEO for inspection. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most

embarrassing moment of his life, . He took his empty pot to the board room.

When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives.

They were beautiful – in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many

of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.

Jim just tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees and flowers you have grown,”

said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”

All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot.

He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified.

He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”

When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed, Jim told him

the story. The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim,

and then announced to the young executives, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!

His name is “Jim!” Jim couldn’t believe it. “How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.

Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed.

I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you

all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow. All of you,

except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the

seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the

only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it.

Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!”

If you plant honesty, you will reap trust

If you plant humility, you will reap greatness

If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment

So, be careful what you plant now;

it will determine what you will reap later.

1. What did the businessman  instruct his executives to do?
2. What did Jim take for inspection after one year? What did the young executives take?
3. Why was Jim chosen as CEO? Name the two qualities the businessman appreciated in Jim?                  4.  What do you reap if you plant perseverance? And what should you plant to reap trust?
4. Give the antonyms ( opposites)  of : a) failure     b)  arrived.
