INTRODUCTION OF LEADER BIOGRAPHY • Mother Teresa's original name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. • Mother Teresa was born on August 26, 1910, in Skopje, capital of the Republic of Macedonia. • Mother Teresa was an Albanian Roman Catholic, and was a famous humanitarian who started the Missionary of Charities. For most of her life, she spent it by taking care for the poor, sick and needy people all over the world. • Her father was a successful merchant and she was youngest of the three siblings. At the age of 12, she decided that she wanted to be a missionary and spread the love of Christ. • Agnes left her parental home in Skopje in 1928 at the age of 18 and joined the Sisters of Loreto at Loreto Abbey in Rathfarnham, Ireland to learn English, with a view to becoming a missionary. • After a few months of training, with the Sisters of Loreto, she was then given permission to travel to India. • She never saw her mother and sister again after she left home. • Her family continued to live in Skopje until 1934, when they moved to Tirana in Albania. • In 1944 she become head mistress of the Loreto convent school. • She passed away on September 5, 1997.
  3. 3. VISIT TO INDIA • Mother Teresa came to India. On May 24, 1931, she took her initial vows as a nun From 1931 to 1948. • Sister Teresa travelled on to Darjeeling, India, for the novitiate period; in May 1931, she made her First Profession of Vows. • Afterward she was sent to Calcutta, where she was assigned to teach at Saint Mary's High School for Girls, a school run by the Loreto Sisters and dedicated to teaching girls from the city's poorest Bengali families. • Sister Teresa learned to speak both Bengali and Hindi fluently as she taught geography and history and dedicated herself to alleviating the girls' poverty through education. • On May 1931 she took her Final Profession of Vows to a life of poverty, chastity and obedience. As was the custom for Loreto nuns, she took on the title of "Mother" upon making her final vows and thus became known as ‘Mother Teresa’. • In 1948, she left the convent to live full time among the poorest of Calcutta. She chose to wear a white Indian Sari, with blue trimmings – out of respect for the traditional Indian dress. For many years, Mother Teresa and a small band of fellow nuns survived on minimal income and food, often having to beg for funds. • Slowly her efforts with the poorest were noted and appreciated by the local community and Indian politicians.
  4. 4. • In 1950, she would start the Missionaries of Charity, with a mission to care for those people that no one else cared for. • Over time the work grew. Missions were started overseas, and by 2013, there are 700 missions operating in over 130 countries. • The scope of their work also expanded to include orphanages, and hospices for those with terminal illness. • In the 1960s, the life of Mother Teresa was first brought to a wider public attention by Malcolm Muggeridge who wrote a book and produced a documentary called “Something Beautiful for God”. • The Missionaries of Charity now has branches throughout the world including branches in the developed world where they work with the homeless and people affected with AIDS. In 1965, the Society became an International Religious Family by a decree of Pope Paul VI. • She would suffer her first heart attack in 1983, and she would go on to have another health issues, all the way till March 1997 when she finally stepped down from her leadership position and she passed away in September 5, 1997,just 9 days after her 87th birthday.

  6. 6. LEADERSHIP STYLE • Mother Teresa leadership style is a Relationship oriented , Situational leader. Situational leadership is a leadership style, when the leader or manager of an organization must adjust his style to fit the development level of the followers he/she is trying to influence. With situational leadership, it is up to the leader to change his style, not the follower to adapt to the leader’s style. In situational leadership, the style may change continually to meet the needs of others in the organization based on the situation.

"Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty." - Mother Teresa • Organization: She went through training, learned English, took vows, was sent to India, and taught the ways of Catholicism, and made sure she was prepared to care for and help the poor and needy before getting permission to leave and do so. • Determination: She was concerned with the poverty in India, she took it upon herself to make sure it went down and that the people were helped and cared for. • Well Equipped: She learned the ways of medicine and made sure she had supplies along with food and shelter to house the sick and poor. • Effective: She inspired others to come and help and in return became known as a famous humanitarian.

People saw the things that she did and were inspired to join her in helping those less fortunate.
  9. 9. How she is a SITUATIONAL leader? “Don’t wait for leaders, do it alone , person to person.” • Mother Teresa was a situational leader. She helped people according to their situation, For example if they were starving she would provide food for them, if they had no place to stay she would provide a home for them to say at, if they were ill she took her time to practice medicine in order to help heal them. If a situation came, she would find a solution to help them in some way. • She and her fellow sisters did what was urgently needed. They were at home for the homeless, food for the hungry, medicines in the ailing company and the lonely. • In 1952, Mother Teresa opened the first Home for the Dying in space made available by the city of Calcutta. With the help of Indian officials she converted an abandoned Hindu temple into the Kalighat Home for the Dying, a free hospice for the poor. She renamed it Kalighat, the Home of the Pure Heart (Nirmal Hriday). • In 1955 she opened the Nirmala Shishu Bhavan, the Children's Home of the perfectly clean Heart, as a haven for orphans and homeless youth.
  10. 10. • Mother Teresa was purely an organised leader. She knew what she wanted and how she would attend to every challenge. She was determined with her sole intention of helping those in need and to achieve that she would pull together all her resources, train people to be capable of doing the job or to be skilled enough to help her and she took care of everyone so no one was left out in the process, neither those who are in need nor those who were working with her. • Mother Teresa was a courageous lady. She did not buckle under any pressure and she did not try and justify her works when she was being criticized for various reasons. She had been the target of severe criticism and her popularity was often dented by some valid and invalid reasons. But none of those deterrents swayed her from her conviction and her eventual mission. • Mother Teresa leadership style is not just applicable to managers, business leaders or professionals but also to life in general.
