Falguni Sagar
  9. 9. I Have been always influenced by following leadership skill Tenacity:- One the most inspiring strong point of Sardar Patel was his firmness to the goal decided to achieve. His strength of will was indeed incomparable. Invincibility: - After getting freedom, when whole world was thinking that India would be divided in thousands of parts, Sardar Patel was the person who proved them wrong and integrates India. Ability of strong and fast decision making skill: Before freedom or after freedom Sardar Patel was always know for his decision making.Influence & team building:- One of the most important characteristic of any leader is his influencing ability. Sardar Patel was full of this skill. For eg. Organized farmers of Kheda and Bardoli of Gujarat to hold mass- non-violent civil disobedience first time in India. At that point farmers were not united and were determined to do violent movement against British. Falguni Sagar
  10. 10. Conflict resolution: - Sardar Patel was also having great conflict resolution skill. There are so many examples in his life for it but the way he consolidated Indian Princely States that is really incomparable.Flexibility according to situation: - Sardar Patel’s most inspiring characteristic was adaptability with any kind of situation. When he was moving from one village to another to unite the India, he faced many hurdles, he went to jail many timesNever ending Winning Spirit: - I have read a book about Sardar Patel’s life, written by Rajmohan Gandhi, I was motivated by his never ending spirit, dedication to work, loyalty to country, always adapting with group and maintaining balance in group (specially in context of Jawaharlal Nehru). therere so many incidents during his childhood about how he used to go school, his tolerance power etc. which really motivated me.

  11. 11. ConclusionThus, life of Sardar Patel is continuous flow of inspirations. Thisgreat leader was self-educated. He has nurtured many skills in hisself by his own. The above-mentioned qualities about him are mostdesired in a manager also because problems never come afterinforming us. I used to peep into the book of Sardar Patel- Adedicated life’ when I feel myself caught up in any very difficultproblem and I am always able to find the solution out of it. It wontbe exaggeration to say that after Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel is themost saluted leader in India. I salute this great Leader. Falguni Sagar
