Globally, the tide of Socialism is on the rise ;
Tide of vigor among the youth to lead is on the rise ;
Tide of tech advances to promote progress even with accompanying evils is on the rise ;
Tide of unrest, disquiet, and dissatisfaction among people is on the rise ;
Tide of terror attacks is on the rise .
We are living in a highly complex world transitioning to a new system or condition politically, academically, and economically where adherence to formal ways of guiding the actions are replaced by new ways ( arbitrarily or imaginatively ) swiftly in time.
Real motivation for this attitude is the ‘urge to bring about change’ and be acclaimed in life.
Political leaders of the day succumb to the desire more easily than leaders in other fields as academics, economy, or even spiritualism.
What actually drives the action in these cases are the basic premises that a leader holds in his thinking. Nationalism is one such character.
One has to distinguish between “Good Nationalism” and “not so good nationalism” to ultimately describe the person involved.
Good Nationalism attempts to bring about change making solutions to problems for progress. Not so good nationalism retards progress and provokes discord among people.
PM Narendra Modi has the urge to bring about change. He meets this urge with a set of qualities that sets him apart from others in the pack. Hence his success and following.
Let me, as a common man endowed with just plain commonsense management and not any big sounding technical abilities, cite five characteristics that make him a successful PM.
1. PM Narendra Modi’s “Vision” is to make India a ‘Global Power’.
2. PM Narendra Modi’s “Methodology” to achieve his vision depends upon ( ‘CII’ ) ” courage, integrity, and insight ” while conceiving, supporting, and implementing all new programs. This is also his mainstay key feature to ‘inspire and influence’ people and his followers.
3. PM Narendra Modi’s “Plan” in the execution of programs hinges on the use of feedback as both a Guiding Vehicle and as a Learning Opportunity. These mark the top qualities of a true Leader.
4. PM Narendra Modi’s “Actions” comprise : (a) proactively dedicating resources for improvement, and (b) seeking to understand the progress of people. He is not reactive or focused on short-term. He is proactive and focused on long-term.
5. PM Narendra Modi’s ” Direction and Control” lay in selecting as his ministers who can match themselves as personalities; with goals aligned; enabling shared values and perspectives.
PM Narendra Modi has thus created a successful “brand” with a concentrated focus on progress with his (a) ‘clarity’ of actions, (b) ‘consistency’ in actions to give influence and power, (c) ‘character’ viewed as the voice and personality of the group to make him distinguishable, (d) ‘communications’ with all his audience in making the “brand” successful, and (e) ‘culture’ guided by his definitive actions in service to the values and purposes of the programs.
Take out of your pocket any Indian currency ( ₹ 10; ₹ 20 – shortly -; ₹ 50; ₹ 100; ₹ 200; ₹ 500; ₹ 2000 ) and your mind goes to the architect of these new currencies, the PM.
PM Narendra Modi does not feel powerless ( not having full agreement or support and even inviting criticisms ) to make changes in policies and programs of the nation, but merely by changing the status quo ( providing change making solutions and ultimately creating workplace of future ) he attempts to bring about progress.
PM Narendra Modi seems to believe in a new “zero tolerance” regime as he read the riot act to Pakistan after the Pulwama incident in February this year. Being bold is the message.
People need to see whether his change motivated (driven) responses and programs to cause disruption in Governance and Accomplishments scatters his efforts and reduces his choices in future or not. PM Narendra Modi has willingly, however, taken risks for all his opinions and programs. Again, a true Leadership trait.
PM Narendra Modi’s motto seems to be “bold and cautious”.

Tidbit : ” Leadership cannot be taught, but only learned in this new age “
P.S. ” I am an apolitical, independent person valuing objective, fair, and neutral assessments. This is meant to be a piece of skeletal management framework of the Indian leader. Only positive features highlighted. The views expressed are personal and do not represent support to any individual, group, or any other dispensation. I do not also claim to be an expert in Politics or a qualified political science student either. “
