What does it take to become a great leader? Is it possible to acquire leadership traits, or is it true that leaders are born, not made? The truth is that anyone can be a successful leader if they acquire certain traits and apply some time tested strategies. And who better to imbibe these traits from than our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi? Modi's landslide win in the 2014 general elections stunned one and all. No one in their wildest dreams could have predicted such an unprecedented scale of victory. In this perceptive analysis, noted academician Pushpesh Pant reveals how Modi's win rested on a 'victory mantra', a combination of certain strategies that have been deployed by the greatest leaders down the ages. These strategies are not limited to political or military leaders alone, if applied correctly, anyone can use these to reach the summit of their respective fields. Insightful and inspirational, this book is a must-read for those whose aim is not to be just a leader, but a great leader.
