Acharya’s Bangalore Business School has started a Leadership Lesson Series that will focus on the whole spectrum of the leadership styles and its implications.

"Leadership is the art of accomplishing more than the science of management."

Admissions open for MBA & PGDM 2015 at Acharya Bangalore B-School (ABBS). To apply click here

 

LESSON-1

Good leadership involves responsibility to the welfare of the group, which means that some people will get angry at your actions and decisions. It's inevitable, if you are honorable.

"Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off".

Trying to get everyone to like you is a sign of mediocrity: you will avoid the tough decisions. You will avoid confronting the people who need to be confronted, and you will avoid offering differential rewards based on differential performance because some people might get upset. Ironically by procrastinating on the difficult choices, by trying not to get any one mad, and by treating everyone equally "nicely" regardless of their contributions, you will simply ensure that the only people you will wind up angering are the most creative and productive people in the organization".

Lesson: A leader should be able to take tough decisions.

 

LESSON-2

"The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership".

If this were a litmus test, the majority of CEOs would fail. One, they build so many barriers to upward communication that the very idea of someone lower in the hierarchy looking up to the leader for help is ludicrous. Two, the corporate culture they foster often defines asking for help as weakness or failure, so people cover up their gaps, and the organization suffers accordingly. Real leaders make themselves accessible and available. They show concern for the efforts and challenges faced by the underlings, even as they demand high standards. Accordingly, they are more likely to create an environment where problem analysis replaces blame.
