There are around 1000 plus articles written on Leaders and Leadership skills.
What new I can add on leaders? I decided to explore the difference between Great Leaders and Leaders. Great Leaders are known by values, Leaders known by numbers: Company, Institution, Healthcare, Education system, Political party.
Great Leaders speak truth, stand for right thing in every situation, resolve conflicts that leads to new direction or beginning, never work under pressure because they are not bound by numbers or designation. Believe in Agile framework: adapt change , fight for the change, work hard to bring change. Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela , Martin Luther King and sometime common man represent great leaders
