In February 2011, Anna Hazare suddenly shot to the nation s attention when he conveyed to the prime minister his intention to fast on matters relating to corruption. Since then, he has galvanized a massive, national movement to combat corruption in the country. So, how did Mr Hazare, at the age of 74 and relatively unknown to the masses, manage to spearhead this movement against corruption?
Simply put, how did he become a leader? It is this question that Leading without Licence: Leadership the Anna Hazare Way answers. In this book, Satheesh Namasivayam and Sivaram Bandhakavi illustrate how Mr Hazare is masterfully practising a set of principles, proven to be effective over the ages, in exercising leadership. As they explain, leading is an act that comprises the performance of smaller sub-acts, in expanding circles of influence.
If you understand these sub-acts and know how to combine them, you too can become a leader. Using the Anna Movement as an example and discussing other comparable cases, Leading without Licence provides guidelines for how you can lead in your everyday life whether you are an ordinary citizen who wants to address social issues in your neighbourhood, a student seeking to change campus politics, or a professional looking to make a mark in your company. No matter where you are or what you do, if you aspire to become a leader, this book is a must-read for you.
