Kalam tells Microsoft employees.
“Excellence is not by accident. It is a process, where an individual, organisation or nation continuously strives to better oneself. They set their own performance standards, they work on their dreams with focus and are prepared to take calculated risks, said Dr APJ Abdul Kalam during a leadership session at Microsoft Hyderabad campus.
The Management Excellence Community (MEC) of Microsoft India Development Center hosted former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, on Friday for a leadership session to 500 plus managers and employees at Hyderabad campus.
According to Dr Kalam, nine key qualities embody a true good leader-vision, passion to realise the vision, willingness to travel on a new unexplored path, ability to manage successive failures, courage to take decisions, nobility in management, transparency in every action, ability to master a problem and work and succeed with integrity.
In an interactive discussion, Dr Kalam shared his thoughts on leadership, drawing from his own rich experiences at Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
