“Leadership is a challenge to be something more than average”. The common perception that formal leadership courses are for people with technical or managerial backgrounds was the norm and academic leadership was unheard of (at least for me and many of the participants).
If we want to succeed in leading any enterprise or pursue a meaningful goal we need to take others along with us in the journey and then we need to transform ourselves into leaders, from manager of emotions to generator of emotions, from a follower of standards to a setter of standards, from a realist to a dreamer and for this transition to occur we need to develop ourselves, understand ourselves and understand others, to go beyond the routine and develop personalities which would make us become “Change Agents”!!.
Thus leadership is actually about self-development through self-understanding, self-realisation, self-motivation and conflict management.
