  • 1. LEADERSHIP lessons learnt

2. A leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the ock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind. Nelson Mandela Noble Peace Prize Winner 3. I don't care whether I'm remembered. I do think that empowering people with the Internet and PCs is my lifetime's work. That's my job; I'm thrilled about that and the new things we can do there. It's also neat in terms of giving all this money back, to take my position where I've been the luckiest person to help the people who have been unlucky to have better lives. I feel very fortunate to have found that and [to] be able to get engaged and hopefully energize that eld as well.Bill Gates Co-Founder, Microsoft 4. Leadership is the ability to inspire others to achieve shared objectives. Managers tell people what to do. Leaders inspire them to do it.Jeff Weiner CEO, LinkedIn 5. Be the change that you wish to see in the world.Mahatma Gandhi 6. Not everyone isborn to lead.The best leader, however, is one who "leads like a baby." The baby, though apparently depending on everyone, is the king of the household. It is the power of expressing one's love and appreciation and sympathy for others, that enables one person to succeed better in spreading the idea than others... Swami Vivekanand 7. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you, and you can change it, you can inuence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.Steve Jobs Co-Founder, Apple 8. People dont care about what you say... they care about what you build.Stay hungry, Stay foolish 9. I played on my schools cricket team, and there was one incident that just was very stunning to me. I was a bowler like a pitcher in baseball and I was throwing very ordinary stuff one day. So the captain took over from me and got the team a breakthrough, and then he let me take over again. Satya Nadela CEO, Microsoft 10. I never asked him why he did that, but my impression is that he knew he would destroy my condence if he didnt put me back in. And I went on to take a lot more wickets after that. It was a subtle, important leadership lesson about when to intervene and when to build the condence of the team. I think that is perhaps the No. 1 thing that leaders have to do: to bolster the condence of the people youre leading. 11. THANK YOU Akash AgrawalLinkedInTwitter
