Standing Meeting




Misra Leadership Consulting fundamentally believes that the intrinsic attributes of leadership lie in each of

every one of us. Secondly, the journey of becoming and being an outstanding leadership

comprises 3 parts and we call it the ARC of leadership- Authenticity, Resiliency and Curiosity.

Authenticity is essentially about who we are fundamentally as human beings, as professionals

and people and that should be pretty easy right. Unfortunately its not, because we live as social

beings and more often than not we live by the yardsticks that the society imposes on us. This

creates, what we call the insecurity gap- the gap between where are and where others want us to

be. We spend our lives trying to bridge this gap and in vain, simply because the goal post

shifting, when we achieve something, the societal pressures want us to achieve something else.

Resilience is the ability of an individual to rise up when the chips are down- resilience is the

ability to lead others when they are down. Resilience comes to the fore when there is a crisis. We

face challenges everyday- micro challenges of delivering against deadlines, macro challenges

like the COVID 19. How do we not let all of this get to us. Resilience is about walking with

purpose by “calming the voice in the head.’ Resilience is an incredibly important leadership

activity because it has the ability to motivate people, it has the ability to make people rise up, it

has the ability to make people think better about themselves.

Clarity: Clarity is about having a vision- a very purposeful vision towards which we execute

with focus. We are able to focus because we genuinely believe it is the right thing to do. It is

really about seeing the bullseye and then executing with single minded devotion, with single

minded focus. This should come pretty naturally to us but then there is the other C, Clutter.

Clutter is the voice in the head, the constant chatter in our head that makes us second guess

ourselves in terms of what we are doing and where we are going. Clutter is noise- do this, do

that, achieve this, accumulate that- it makes us always want more and makes us unhappy. Clutter

creates insecurity, creates an unhealthy environment. As leaders, it makes us ineffective at best

and procrastinators at worst.
