Most of us watching world news might know Anna Hazare.

He is a 74 year old man, who is fighting against corruption and most people in India are supporting him. He is a former soldier who served in Indian Army for 15 years and enlisted after the 1962 Indo-China war when the Indian government exhorted young men to join the Army. Now he is back to the battle field to fight against corruption in a peaceful way. Transformational leadership In this leadership, the leader articulates the vision and motivates their followers by inspiration and persuasion rather than the "carrot-and-stick" approach to achieve their goals. Now let us discuss his leadership style. I'm sure after reading these four styles you can easily figure out his leadership style which is Transformation leadership. When he started his hunger strike in Delhi, the Indian capital, he had a vision. The vision was to implement Jan Lokpal Bill; the anti-corruption bill he thinks can help to eradicate corruption from India. He possesses high confidence and belief in his abilities to make this happen. He inspires and energizes most of the Indian people, especially youngsters to help them to understand it is worthy and meaningful war to fight in a peaceful way. For day 1 he was continuously communicating his vision. As part of doctoral dissertation leadership research, Howard Edward Haller, a well known entrepreneur interviewed sixteen prominent doctoral dissertation leadership researches and found the following traits associated with Transformational leadership: 1. Honesty or integrity 2. A high level of people skills 3. Initiative, assertiveness, drive, or determination 4. Excellent communication skills or willingness to speak up, take a position, or take charge 5. Vision (being forward-looking) 6. Desire or passion to lead and inspire 7. Positive attitude and self-confidence; charisma 8. Knowledge of the business and/or group task at hand; competence 9. The ability to overcome adversity or obstacles

If we look at Anna's social activities since 1995, one can easily connect the above qualities to him. Hence, I think his leadership style is Transformational.

"Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it." --Dwight D. Eisenhower Eisenhower was a WWII General, known to be one of the greatest assets the Allies had. The Allies had to first beat Germany, to contain Japan until this task was finished, and then force Japan into surrendering. During these tough and crucial times, it was Eisenhowers diplomacy and tact that held the Allies together and brought the victory. And,it was tough and crucial times that the Kolkata Knight Riders owned by Shah Rukh Khan - and the Bangalore Royal Challengers owned by Vijay Mallya, went through when both their team failed to qualify for the semis. So how did the two deal with the situation? Mallya reacted by blaming his captain Dravid and sacking Charu Sharma, his manager, for selecting a team of their not his choice. For good measure, he also blamed the media.

On the other hand Shah Rukh declared to the press that he was undaunted by his teams lack of success, and that the failures of this year would be the pillars of success for his IPL team next year. Two distinct contrasts in leadership styles and behaviour. Leadership StylesFrom Mahatma Gandhi to Ratan Tata, and Medha Patkar to Lalu Prasad Yadav, there are as many

leadership styles as there are leaders. Fortunately, business people and psychologists have developed useful, shorthand ways of describing the main leadership styles that can help aspiring leaders to understand and adapt their own styles and leadership impact. In his book Primal Leadership, Goleman introduces six leadership styles: 1.VisionaryLeadership 2.Coachingstyle 3.AffiliativeLeadership 4.DemocraticLeadership 5.PacesettingLeadership 6. Commanding Leadership According to Daniel Goleman, good leaders are effective because they create resonance. They are tuned in to other peoples feelings and move them in a positive emotional direction. They speak authentically about their own values, direction and priorities and resonate with the emotions of their people. Under the guidance of an effective leader, people feel a mutual comfort level. Studies have shown that resonance comes easily to people with a high degree of emotional intelligence. Based on the Goleman model, Mallya would appear to have a combination of a Pacesetting and Commanding styles of leadership. People with this style have a strong urge to achieve, are low on empathy and collaboration, impatient, numbers driven and tend to micromanage. These traits may have helped Mallya in his corporate battles such as the long drawn out one with Kishore Chhabria, for management control of Shaw Wallace. Have they let him down in the management of his IPL team? If Emotional intelligence is about using ones emotions intelligently, could more intelligent management of his emotions arising out of his leadership style attributes - impatience and lack of empathy have helped him lead his team better during such crucial and sensitive times? Would that have also reinforced his image as a chilled out King of Good Times? On the other hand, Shah Rukhs response to his teams failure was to pep up the spirit of his team by sending each of them an SMS saying, the beauty of failure is that it brings people together. So, lets stick this out together Or, Do We Require Change of Our Thinking? Are we seeing an evolution in the nature of the game of cricket as we know it? The IPL has all the elements of big league football - dugouts, cheerleaders, big money et al. Why, they even share the same name Premier league. So is Mallyas behaviour in keeping with that of a typical football team owner? Remember how the Chelsea football team owner, Roman Abramovich, sacked the manager of his team just days after their recent defeat to Man U? With a role model such as this, is Mallyas behaviour justified? Again, as Harsha Bhogle observes in The Indian Express , the corporatisation of cricket and profitability, image and return on investment become key criteria, can Mallyas behaviour be seen as demanding accountability from his employees? After all, having shelled out a bomb for each of them, he would be perfectly within his rights to demand results of them
