About the Book

This book is about moves and energies of leadership. Anthropologically, human beings move in eight directions. Eight moves are BACKWARD, FORWARD, RIGHTWARD, LEFTWARD, INWARD, OUTWARD, UPWARD and DOWNWARD. In each move, there is an energy, BACKWARD – Historical Consciousness, FORWARD – Vision of the future, RIGHTWARD – Power and Authority, LEFTWARD – Love and Flexibility, INWARD - Attitude, OUTWARD - Expressions, UPWARD - Transcendence and DOWNWARD – pragmatism and Usefulness. Success of leadership lies in the ways in which a leader realizes the energies and use them to achieve goals of an organisation. Developing leadership skills must focus on these energies, not just on skills. All these eight moves and the eight energies are interconnected and interrelated. One does not have any meaning if isolated from the other. In managing human resources, all the movements and energies have to be considered equally. When you talk about being conscious of the past, immediately you need to place your future in sight. When you realise the energy of power-fullness you need to soften it with love and emotional appropriateness. In the same way, your attitude should be seen on your actions. There must be constant move between the energies to make a leader dynamic leader.
