My philosophy on leadership is that a leader should be able to take his/her teammates along. Traditionally, we had seen that there were leaders as Rajas who would boss around but today the scenario has changed. A leader should be able to assess and judge a person’s capability. And once that is done the right job must be assigned to the right person. This allocation is extremely important in leadership. The 2nd skill that a leader must possess is to have the right attitude to deal with people. Managing people is an art and a good leader should be a master of it.
I am still on the learning process and where am still learning and assessing myself to find out what kind of leadership is good for the team and adapt my leadership style based on the situation. At times I am a democratic leader and the rest of the times I am authoritative. Yet, am not bossy when things are not done on time. I have to make the team understand and at such times I take up a dominative role too.
The significant challenge is to create an awareness to the students about the green environment and to inculcate a social responsibility. Today students are into technological dreams forgetting the importance of their contribution to the development of our nation.
