Why India Needs More Leaders? India has always been a nation of doers. We are excellent in doing things. We produce outstanding analysts, programmers and managers. And while doing this we produce services which are cost competent. But the problem with cost competency is that it is fleeting. That it does not give us any sustainable competitor advantage. It can be replicated easily and hence it is India today, but it could be any nation tomorrow. To get on to the next level India should build itself as a nation of leaders. We should build leadership in the country.

Ordinary is Someone Average Ordinary is this boy called Mohan. Who read a newspaper for the first time at the age of 16. Who was scared of darkness. Who barely managed to pass his matriculation. Who had the worst of stage frights.

Leadership is creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary However, there is nothing extraordinary about extraordinary

Leadership is creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary

However, there is nothing extraordinary about extraordinary

Leadership is a Decision As you have seen in the cases of Gandhiji, Edison and John F Kennedy, great leaders are not distinguishable from ordinary people in terms of their intelligence, talents, or abilities for that matter. They did not possess anything that made them born leaders – no birthrights, no pedigree and no extraordinary attributes. But when they were faced with a defining moment, they boldly decided to step in to the shoes of a leader.

Many of us here think that we are ordinary. That we did not get a chance to be at IIT, or an IIM, that we did not go to a Harvard or MIT. But if you would decide we would make you a leader. Decide..that is the first step You Can Decide to be Extraordinary
