Leadership he was unable to meet the expectations

Leadership style of India’s 11th
president, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam if imbibed can turn an ordinary organization
into an extra ordinary and a magnificent organization. He did not believe in
the word impossible and went about proving his belief. Leaders explode the mind
of others; just like that Dr. Kalam went on his mission like a unique satellite
that revolves around the Universe, erupting hundreds and thousands of minds and
numerous nations. He never took pride in anything and shared all his knowledge
and experience with transparency and sincerity to the entire nation.


Dr. Manmohan Singh is an excellent Economist;
but a bad leader in Indian context. He is the
fortuitous prime minister in the history. Dr. Singh was bestowed with position
and power of a leader but was unable to perform his assigned task successfully
and was termed as an underachiever. The nation was expecting new reforms which
would drive the economy on the accurate path and better economic growth but he
was unable to meet the expectations of his followers. His reputation was at
stake initially and finally diminished worldwide due to his inability to take
his own decisions. He lacked the ability to take decisions from his end as a
leader of the nation and as someone people were looking forward to for the
development of the country. His silence and ignorance on several issues were of
major concern of the people of the country. He took decisions based on his
party’s pressure and could not lead the nation as expected from a prime
minister. Hence, he is termed as a bad leader in the political history of


However, there are
few similarities between a good and a bad leader. The polite, non- threatening
behavior the two leaders Dr. Kalam and Dr. Singh possess is what they are both
respected for. Leaders are expected to accept the criticism and are inclined to
share their knowledge, wisdom, power and responsibility and both the leaders
mentioned, possessed these virtues. Leaders are humble and do not flaunt their
qualities, such was their leadership style. Their personal leadership style’s
impresses global celebrities and the people of their country admire both these
leaders to be modest and humble. In addition, both these leaders have accepted
criticism honestly. When NASA launch failed Dr. Kalam took the responsibility
of the failure even though he was not responsible for the launch and its failure,
this is what leaders do.


Dr. Kalam encouraged thousands of people to
dream; and believe in their dreams, rather than forcing them to believe in his own dreams. He had a vision for the nation and the people he
belonged to, the people of his nation. He was always finding innovative solutions to the problems. He is
the only missile scientist in this country who encouraged and motivated the
people and which even now makes people around the world walk with confidence.
He was a confident and a courageous leader who dared to dream the impossible.
On the other hand, Dr. Manmohan Singh is thought of a very less impactful
leader, who lacked confidence and courage to take decisions on his own; He
never had a vision and a goal to achieve, for the nation and did not take
interest either. Apart from this, he was not able to entice the audience or his
followers and was never ahead to take initiatives and bring innovation for the
development of the country. He lacked a positive attitude and even though was
bestowed with powers was unable to perform his duty. He was influenced by the
decisions of others and was unable to put forth his point.
