  11. 11.  Gandhi is considered as one of the most influential leaders. Without any official position, power or money, from humble beginnings he gained world prominence, helped achieve freedom and left a lasting legacy for us all. Many of Gandhi’s core principles are remarkably relevant in the realm of leadership competencies and self-development.  For following reasons we have chosen Mohandas Gandhi as a Charismatic Leader…….
  12. 12.  Gandhi always told that if two of his sentences contradicted each other, please accept the second one and forget the first one.This reflects –  learning and growth mindset  anticipation of follower’s needs  rigid consistency was NOT one of his traits
  13. 13. “Be quick, be brief, be gone!” Personal meetings with Gandhi were very short. However Gandhi made people feel as if they were the only person in the world that Gandhi would have liked to talk at that time
  14. 14. Gandhi was not a good orator, but people followed him because he practiced the principles of truth and non- violence in his life first and proved that any ordinary man can follow his path of truth and non-violence and then inspired others to follow these principles
  15. 15. Once a journalist asked Gandhi what was the biggest problem that India faced? He expected Gandhi to say slavery or British rule or pervasive poverty. But Gandhi said it was “callousness of intellectuals” . Gandhi had a long term vision of building a sustainable society and not just getting independence
  16. 16. Non cooperation was one of the key political movements that Gandhi initiated. Gandhi aborted the movement saying a key tenet of the movement – non- violence, was violated. He believed that the end did not justify the means.
  17. 17. As you grow in self awareness, you will better understand why you feel what you feel and why you behave as you behave. Self discipline is the training of your mind to control, perceived harmful, urges until a satisfactory solution has been sought
  18. 18. A leader with vision has a clear, vivid picture of where to go, and a firm grip on what success looks like and how to achieve it. Leader must share the vision and act upon it. He must communicate it clearly and passionately.
  19. 19. Mahatma Gandhi was a great leader. He had chosen the path of non-violence for himself and his followers.
  20. 20. Gandhi’s approach had always been holistic as human life is a synthetic whole, which cannot be divided into watertight compartments of social, political, religious life, etc. He is in favor of a non-violent and more civilized life style
  21. 21. Always keep things in perspective. Do not dismiss other or anything- big or small- without giving a try. We never know where the next useful idea might come from.
  22. 22. An enduring leader is not a superior person, but only first among equals; first to abide by the moral code of conduct; first to bear the brunt of change; first to surrender privileges, and first to sacrifice one’s life. A leader is elected, chosen to serve and not installed to rule.
  23. 23. A leader has to see that not many layers of hierarchies are created between him or her and the people at the lowest rung; and the people’s voice does not go unheard and doesn’t get distorted to the extent of even belying the truth
  24. 24.  When he initiated compromise between two opponents – he was a mediator  When he applied his trident of truth, love and non- violence – he was an uncompromising autocrat  When he gave procedural details to accomplish a goal – he was a bureaucrat  When he delegated power to his colleagues or juniors – he was a trainer and developer

  26. 26.  Charisma is a special quality of some leaders that differentiates them from others  Charismatic leaders often contribute to group members’ attributions of their charismatic qualities through impression management  The effects of charismatic leadership can be organized into three dimensions: referent power, expert power, and job involvement
