Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt.

141 years have passed since the world’s greatest apostle of peace, harmony and love was born.

Less than an year has passed since Lexspeak was born ……in 2009.

But we are glad we have great sources of inspiration like this apostle to draw our lessons in leadership from. Yes, we are referring to the Mahatma who was an epitome of
‘purposeful action’. There was eloquence in his silence as was action in his speech. He demonstrated
‘leadership by example’ and led the entire nation by
‘doing’ rather than just ‘preaching’.

Lexspeak continues its ‘purposeful journey’ – that of sharing information that may be relevant to all of you. You are invited to contribute too. If you want to learn more, then read and share more
