MS Dhoni’s golden mantra on leadership

Important thing is that you need to earn the respect of the people you are leading. You cannot command or demand respect, it has to be earned. I maybe having a position in the institution and it needs to be respected. But me as an individual, sitting on that chair, needs to earn that respect. I can’t be saying you need to respect me because I’m sitting on this chair,” MS Dhoni said.
