Leader does matter

21/07/2013

Few days back i fond a superb quote by Napoleon Bonaparte in Gujarati version and in image form, i liked it a lot and decided to find the English version of it. finally, i found it today therefore, i am writing it here with little more discussions. English version of the quote states “An Army of lions commanded by a deer will never be an army of lions.” Now let me put the Gujarati Version of the quote too.

bbmBoth of these version are pointing towards the leadership quality. History says that there are the lot of extra ordinary leader born and led ordinary army to the victory. and sometimes it also happens that you have the best army in the world but due to weak leader your army faces loss.

examples from troy and 300 we can prove it very easily. even we can find the lot of leaders (group leader) and army (group of people) around us who suffers because of weak leader who does not want to fight for his army or sometimes even he does not allow his army to fight on their own. he might think that if in any case my army wins the battle without my leadership then people might put question mark on my leadership. then leader’s top most position might be in danger. therefore, most of the leaders now a days never encourage their army instead they discourage them to be a leader forever.

I also analyze that, generally there are two kinds of leaders, one who goes up and pull his people up so everyone found (accept) him as the leader and the other, who pushes down his people to be on top and show everyone on top that he is the leader. around us we have a lot of leader from second category than the first one.

If you want to be a leader than try to be the leader of your team (people working under you) not of the people working on top of you. because if they found someone else better than you for them, they will surely change you but your team will always respect you as the leader.

“જો તમે ૧૦૦ સિંહો ની ફૌજ તૈયાર કરો, તેનો લીડર એક કુતરા ને બનાવો અને યુદ્ધ કરવા જાઓ તો બધા જ સિંહ કુતરા ની મૌત મરશે…
પરંતુ…
જો તમે ૧૦૦ કુતરા ની ફૌજ તૈયાર કરો, તેનો લીડર એક સિંહ ને બનાવો અને યુદ્ધ કરવા જાઓ તો બધા કુતરા સિંહ ની જેમ લડશે.”

“If you prepare the troop of 100 lions, make a dog its leader and go to war, all the lions will die like dogs…
But …
If you prepare the troop of 100 dogs, make a lion its leader and go to war, all the dogs will fight like lions.”
