A large amount of research pertaining to leadership already exists worldwide. Western models of leadership have centered on enhancing corporate performance and have extensively looked at traits which characterize a leader as against a manager.
The speaker, based on his experience as a corporate manager and a visiting professor at global business schools, is proposing a model of leadership which has not yet been discussed in corporate, social or academic circles.
Good leadership, according to the speaker, requires two necessary traits: a cause higher than themselves and personal sacrifices for the cause.
The webinar will delve into the issue of leadership from this prism and attempt to learn about leadership using works of research literature.
