Building the Team & Acceptance as the trusted Leader Dhoni has build a image and charisma of the trusted leader with his down to earth, simplistic approach, personal standards of excellence and natural motivational ability.

He provides opportunity for every team member to prove themselves and contribute to the best of their abilities whether it is Raina, Yusuf Pathan, Nehra, Ashwin,etc

Instead of giving excuses for lack of best resources, especially with the current scenario economic crisis, it is better to perform in whatever resources a leader has to his disposal. Strategizing smartly using the resources available
  22. 22. MSD has used his resources brilliantly whether it is using the weak bowling attack, the vast experience of Sachin, the picking the sharp brains of Sehwag, Zaheer Khan or the coach and support staff. He also trusts his gut instinct to visualize the end result and achieve it even if it meant going against the conventional or traditional methods. Strategizing smartly using the resources available

  27. 27. As opposed to the current trend of aggressive, credit snatching, attention grabbing leaders; MSD like the perfect leader lets his team members believe that they achieved it themselves.

  33. 33. By promoting himself in the batting order over Yuvraj Singh in the final inspite of his poor form as it would help the team (having let hand-right hand combination) he took charge out there in the centre and lead by example.
