Leaders are of several hues and come in an array of shapes and sizes, ideas and imaginations, attitudes and aptitudes, inspirations and innovations, aspirations and actions, competencies and conflicts, expectations and eccentricities……. They could be a servant leader, an authoritative leader, an influential leader, an inspiring leader, a born leader, a made leader or the reluctant leader. However a leader who can transform people subtly through his influence is the one to stay. He needs to have the “Butterfly Effect” to impact his people, organization and society. It is said ‘a butterfly could flap its wings and set molecules in motion, which would move other molecules of air, in turn moving more molecules of air – eventually capable of starting a hurricane on the other side of the planet’.
Who would think an ugly, creepy, slimy caterpillar would turn into a breathtakingly beautiful, brilliant butterfly with such immense potential as to challenge the forces of nature and turn its fury on ! If a delicate butterfly can why can’t we ? I think each one of us has a leader hidden in us. We need to unhide, unravel and unleash the “IL” (Influential Leader”) in us by deploying the “BE’”(Butterfly Effect) in our own spheres of life.
