A leader is made, not born. Nobody becomes a leader only through learning as provided by Management courses. They need to experience certain situations – both pleasant and unpleasant or challenging. When their learning is backed by personal experiences, it is like baptism by fire. This book talks about a real person who evolved into an effective leader initially motivated by his own experiences and later learning through his studies and on the job. It has the potential to inspire not only the aspiring leaders but also those already working in managerial and leadership positions.
