There is no dearth of books on leadership. But this is a book on leaders with a difference,
These leaders are inspirational leaders who have reached the top in their chosen
field, but have never lost touch with ground truths and the millions at the bottom of the
pyramid. Following the path-breaking concept of the late C. K. Prahalad, the leaders
profiled in this volume have led organizations which in some manner touch the lives of
legions of ordinary people in the country. Whether its the area of consumer goods,
basic infrastructure, healthcare, banking, energy, education or women workers in the
informal sector, these leaders have been leading change and changing lives and one
would hope they would continue to do so for many more years to come. Based on
exclusive interviews, these are profiles in courage, vision and exemplary leadership.
This exclusive insights that the profiles provide into the lives and work of these inspirational
leaders would be of immense interest to the lay reader, invaluable for students of
Human Resources and virtually priceless for those who study Leadership on both a
discipline and an art. This volume also signals the start of a series on different dimensions
of emerging leadership in India that will shape its future in the years to come.
