“Be the change you want to see” – Mahatma Gandhi

graph11The leadership qualities which Mahatma Gandhi displayed during India’s freedom struggle were based on setting a personal example. He never asked anyone to do anything. He simply did it himself first. He never lectured on the correctness or incorrectness of an idea. He did it and let others do the evaluation. He developed a mass following and his ‘vision’ became the vision of each Indian. The outcome is well documented in the annals of history.

In a way Gandhi practiced the best principle of Leadership Coaching. He set out a vision, brainstormed his options and put in place an action plan and started doing it himself first. Hence, what started as a vision of one man became the mission of all men and eventually the vision of every man.

Business and Leadership Strategies

Business coaching is largely implemented by most industries and companies. However, there are few who align their business goals with their leadership strategies. The industry must align its business strategy with a comprehensive leadership strategy in order to achieve organizational goals and objectives.
