Abstract or Introduction
What makes a great leader great? What kind of skills does he use? Why are people still recognizing him for his behavioral skills? Is it possible to replicate those e.g. in business life?
Gandhi was a leader of one of a kind. Not only did he see himself not as leader, but someone to help people reach their highest goals. He was truly inspirational and stood up for ethical values that all too often got lost nowadays. Still many people worship them and would like to live up to them. His values and beliefs can easily be applied in business life by treating every human as such and are a wakeup call to organizations. As recent events as for instance the Financial Crisis have shown us, thinking about profit without moral behaviour will lead to devastating results.
This work is mainly based on "Leadership in Organizations" by Gary A. Yukl and "The Three Faces of Leadership" by Hatch et al.
