In her address, Prof. Neharika Vohra said the leadership challenges are complex and there is no one right answer. She said that the leader does not impose a solution; the final solution emerges from the dialogue of all the parties. All the parties learn from one another – and learn more about the situation in the process. She said that everyone must adapt their perspective in order for a solution to emerge. She said that a leader is one who articulates the problem and makes others realize that together they can make the change happen. She said that a leader is one who can offer hope, build community and see new possibilities. She said that leading is all about exercising leadership for the right problem at the right time.
A leader needs to have the capacity to hold the pressure and come up with the solution. She said that leading is actually about sensing the emotions of the group around you. She said that the quality of a leader is to hear what has been unheard and represents them on the table. She said that managing is not any less than leading and leading is not any better than managing. These are two different kinds of acts that we do at two different points of time for finding solutions to two different problems.
