Pressure on  leaders to be visible
for leadership today is all about visibility
so speak something, anything in a meeting
cut down to size the other guy
even if he's talking sense...

Be wary of a junior
in the visibility race
'Delegation', a nice word for the books
not for the practical corporate world...

Lao Tzu, a philosopher
may have said all sorts of things
like, the leader not visible is the greatest
that 'best' scenario is when your people say
"we did it ourselves!"

But then he belonged to
another age and time
how could he foresee
realities of 21st century corporates?!


  1. True, things have changed. Leaders should evolve and do what is demanded.

  2. The corporate world seldom has Leaders in its true sense. Very apt poem.

  3. Thank you so much Saru and Ajai for sharing your thoughts!
