Vijay Eswaran believes a leader can only be appointed if the business card says something other than leadership is not a title. Some leaders impact the lives of others by inspiring them to do what they never thought they could do. Vijay says a leader is characterized as follows:
Ownership – True leaders do not let others dictate their path or allow circumstances to hinder them from their next steps. Taking ownership means accountability and a good leader should relegate instead of delegating.
Empowerment – A good leader is not measured by how they have advanced but rather by how they have progressed in other people’s lives. They help challenge the standards people are accustomed to and take them out of their comfort zone.
Purpose-driven – Exemplary leadership impacts the world, and when a leader has a purpose beyond them, people identify with it.
Caring – Showing genuine compassion towards other people is interwoven in everything you do.
Being a businessman, Vijay understands the stress and burnouts entrepreneurs experience, making it almost impossible. He has adopted the sphere of silence technique, which is a daily routine that involves investing one hour a day for reflection, and it is divided into three parts, the path of duty for 30 minutes, the path of knowledge for 20 minutes, and the path of devotion for 10 minutes.
