MSD.. The Leader rise again ?

Mahendra Singh Dhoni... Can he lead anymore?
There comes a stage in every leader's life when he loses that middas touch, which made him the Goldsmith off sorts and then begins the downfall. His team loses its sheen. Some Members of the team live more in the hope of leading the team then following the leader; some live too much on past laurels and are too complacent to let the flow of any fire in the belly.

The Leader is no longer leading but following a new plan of defeat. Earlier every decision of MSD was considered as a stroke of a master and now those very decisions are attributed to the luck factor.

Where has the Leader with guts disappeared? Where has those skills gone? Why is not anything clicking?

The answer lies in the experience of other Leaders in various fields. These are the Leaders, known to lead in the good times and not so good times. Yes… not so good times because there are no bad times in a Good Leader's life. He knows it well that if he is not able to stand then he might not fall either; he will just sit down for a while.

The keys to Leader’s success are…
1. His ability to reflect and accept his shortcomings.
2. Not becoming predictable or not repeating himself.
3. Attitude to involve in decision-making, and dissolve in executing it.
4. Grooming fresh legs that can walk when old ones are tired.
5. Having self-belief that he can use all of the above and may be innovate some more.

There is a huge difference between an individual who chooses to be a leader and an individual on whom leadership is forced on. The former is flexible and eager to learn and innovate, thus conquering new peaks with his leadership skills. While the latter runs of out ideas and men in his quest to remain on one peak. Hopefully, MSD falls in the former category.

I agree with u sir... MSD with the time has lost those leadership abilities... May be because we expect much more than he is proving or may be now he knows that for next few years at least no one will raise questions on his abilities.
"He knows that he has no end and hence now he will not bend"
