Preface

Leadership is a word and a concept that has been more argued than almost any other. One should not be one of the desk-pounding types that like to stick out his jaw and look like he is bossing the show. One should far rather get behind and, recognizing the frailties and the requirements of human nature, should rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once you have persuaded him, he will stick. If you scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone.

You cannot do all the work that is expected from you and hence, there is a need of a team. Fostering teamwork is creating a work culture that values collaboration. In a teamwork environment, people understand and believe that thinking, planning, decisions and actions are better when done cooperatively. People recognize, and even assimilate, the belief that "none of us is as good as all of us". However, it's hard to find work places that exemplify teamwork. Teamwork generates conflicts. People have different ideas and they wish to do things differently. Ambiguity in purpose, and undefined roles and objectives also proves to be hurdle in success.

Normally most of us are very bad players of teamwork. Each member of the team wants to hog the limelight, wants to take the credit for the "success" of the team and "love to blame" his team, member for the failure of his team. Be it any team; small or big, we normally failed as a team. Hard to digest, but this is a fact. Some of the factors our failures as a team are ego, arrogance, lack of knowledge, confidence and self belief, insecurity, and due to this, we tend to block others' success. We tend to harm them. We tend to play "political games" with your own team-members. You can, however, create a teamwork culture by doing just a few things right.

There is a saying in Hindi, "Yatha Raja, Tatha Praja" (as the king, so the people). Hence, the team leader has an important role in "team development and management". Just because you work in teams or lead teams doesn't mean that you are a good team player. A team leader should have confidence in his own abilities, knowledge and skills.

In life, it doesn't matter where you're coming from, where are you going and how are you going to get there? Aside from what you want to accomplish, what kind of a person do you want to become as the result of all your work and effort? Men and women who achieve great things in life are invariably those who give a lot of thought to their own evolution and growth. They become exceptional people by design, not by accident. They are like master craftsmen, continually shaping and polishing their characters and personalities so that they evolve and grow into someone important and worthwhile. And so should you. The highest goal you can have for yourself is to become a leader, to become an outstanding man or woman who is looked up to, admired and respected by the people around you.

We have been led to believe, over the years, that leaders are those who stride boldly, exude power and confidence, give orders and make decisions for others to carry out. However, that's an old school of thought. The leader of today is the one who asks questions, listens carefully, plans diligently and then builds consensus among all the stakeholders for achieving the goals. A leader does not try to do it by himself or herself. A leader is a person who gets things done by helping others to help themselves. The mark of true leaders is that they lead the action. They are willing to go first. They set the example and act as the role model. They do what they expect others to do. A key leadership characteristic is to set high standards of accountability for themselves and for their behaviours. They assume that others are watching them and then setting their own standards by what they do.

Always strive to lengthen your stride. If you stride so that you are comfortable, you will never improve. You must stretch yourself. The secret to accomplishing much is to reach beyond your grasp! If your reach exceeds your grasp, you will enter a daily fight of self discipline and self denial. Start every day with the intention, determination and commitment to do what others are unwilling to do.

To be a successful leader, one should be willing to grow, work harder and smarter than anyone else, always be grateful, always be selfless, never be satisfied, love everyone and everything, live right now, give best at all times, think on spirit not on matter, believe in God, always look inward and upward and not outward, believe in the power of an idea, trust and know that all is well, and never give up and live the Dream.

To understand the leadership and teamwork in a simple way, we have conceived the idea of this book to tell you much more on leadership an teamwork in just few hours.

These meaningful quotes about leadership and teamwork will touch, inspire and move you, and you can thus have a line of action and thoughts to be a Great Leader.

This book provides 100 carefully chosen quotations on Leadership & Teamwork, mixed, modified and created. Some of the thoughts presented are ours and others are from the people who have stood by and worked for the values; some were famous names and some others were ordinary people. We have tried to indicate in the acknowledgement page name of the persons who have quoted wherever we could remember. Our sincere thanks to all these great personalities and eminent writers; who have given such invaluable thoughts to this world. Any amendment/addition in this regard is most welcome from the readers.

Ganesha gives peace, prosperity and wisdom also and, therefore, each of the quotes in this book has a painting of Lord Ganesha to inspire you. These paintings have been created by our professional artists keeping in view the theme of individual quote.

We prostrate before our parents Smt Kanchan Devi and Shri Bhairav Lal Kogata, and late Kamla Devi Nuwal and late Prof. K.M. Nuwal, whose blessings have enabled us to grow in life.

With the expectation of blessings and constructive feedback from all of you.
