"Let me define a leader. He must have vision and passion and not be afraid of any problem. Instead, he should know how to defeat it. Most importantly, he must work with integrity."

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam





APJ Abdul Kalam has been a great inspiration for multiple generations of Indians. His definition of a leader is straightforward yet profound. 


A leader needs to have a great vision that can see beyond what others can conceive or imagine, a compelling vision that can positively impact everyone. 


Leaders need to communicate and execute the vision with an infectious passion. Be courageous to overcome adversity or problem by persevering to achieve the goal through creative problem-solving.  


The emphasis on integrity over all this sets the bar high for leadership. To have integrity is to be honest, authentic, transparent, ethical, fair, equitable, and adhering to a higher standard of values. 


Lead with Vision, Passion, and Unyielding Integrity.
