Index."Leadership is the art of leading people and controlling time, space and resources to attain the organisational goals. The leader identifies and shows the way; others follow him. It is axiomatic that all leaders should possess some especial physical, moral and mental attributes, which set them apart from the followers. Yet leadership is not the preserve of only a selected few ordained, as if by destiny, to lead their less gifted fellow beings during normal and challenging times. All of us, with a very few exceptions, have the potential to make effective leaders within our limitations. Leaders are thus 'made'; only a few are 'born' leaders. It is also unkind on leaders to seek in them all the noble and stirring virtues. Like all of us, they are also human susceptible to many failings of human behaviour. Good leaders, however, do not let these weaknesses affect their performance."In this book, the author has tried to remove many common myths and misconceptions about military leadership. He has analysed the specific leadership traits relevant for every rung of command and has suggested practical measures to acquire and develop them. He feels that with self-discipline, dedication and perseverance, all of us can evolve ourselves into good leaders. His detailed commentary on decision-making, time management, creativity, leadership ethics, and morale and motivation has further enhanced the value of the book. Though written basically for army officers, this book will prove equally useful to the officers from the other two services and from para-military and police organisations."

About this title


Leadership - the art of leading men, and managing time, space and resources - has a special significance for the Armed Forces. Many a time, leadership alone can make the difference between success and failure. The book analyses every relevant facet of Military Leadership including the aspects like `Time Management', `Stress Management' and `The Art of Relaxation' which have not been given the attention they deserve in the vast literature on the subject. The author suggests many practical measures for the officers as they gradually progress from the first to the apex ring of military leadership. This book will be of immense value to all those who take the Business of Leadership seriously.
