I am an ardent follower of Cricket since my child hood as i played lot of cricket and also analyse and learn a lot from the Game. But , The current Indian Cricket team captain and Wicket-keeper Mr.Mahender Singh Dhoni is one person who will be remembered till the cricket exists. He has lead the team towards some ground breaking victories and made the whole country proud in many ways.
But, what made me more excited ,inspired and thoughtful is that, his exceptional display of leadership skills which are unique and are not seen in the history of Indian Cricket. These leadership skills are brilliant and will bring you the success irrespective of the field that you are working in. I am writing down top 6 lessons or leadership skills that everyone should learn from Dhoni.
1. Become master in your Role (wicket-keeper,bats man) and role model in Responsibility (Captain). Excellence in personal skills as well as leadership skills are crucial for a great leader.
2. When there is an impending failure, take time to stratezise , talk with and guide your team and try to display the peak performance in your role.
3. Emotional Intelligence and Presence of mind is what differentiate the winner from the looser when there is an intense competition from the opponent. A great Leader knows this.
4.When the challenge comes, promote yourself to face it and try to take off the pressure from the young team members in order to improve their performance in the long run.
5.When failure comes, be calm , consider criticism as a passing cloud, build a team , nurture them, back them, practice hard and try different ways to reach success. When success comes, make sure that your team enjoys it.
6. Know about yourself better than any one can. This helps you to take big decisions ( Dhoni taking retirement from Tests) for the greater good of your team and for your own life.
Thank you Mr.Dhoni for such an awesome display of leadership.
