there is no greater exemplar than Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.  pp  p pp  p p p  p pppp p p p p p n putting forward a path to a higher standard of leadership. Gandhi spent more than fifty years in public life and is best known .

and he paid great attention to the details of implementation. he could sustain high energy level for extended periods. "My life is its own message. When a journalist asked Gandhi for a message for the United States. Roosevelt. he had great interpersonal skills. Instead he preached and -.more importantly -. Mussolini. Eisenhower. and held no government position. commanded no armies.lived the gospel of truth and nonviolence and demonstrated through his life of service the oneness of humanity. Gandhi responsded.for leading hundreds of millions of people against one of the greatest empires in the history of the World. whether it is through customers. it was governed by principles and values. or technology. Gandhi had many of the qualities we associate with a successful leaders. Montgomery. products. Patton and MacArthur -. He reminded the world that the human spirit is indomitable and that courage and love are more powerful than force. especially for African Americans. The world acknowledged his special place when the United Nations flew its flag at half-mast when he was assassinated. Churchill. Gandhi's life was driven by his religion: truth and nonviolence and life of service to others." . He is the only individual with no connection to any government or international organization for whom this has been done. Stalin. Business leaders have as their passion the organization. Gandhi's life was not governed by policies.Gandhi wore no resplendent uniform. In addition to courage and determination. he was decisive. In contrast to the other political leaders and military commanders of his time -. de Gaulle. he was thoughtful but action oriented.men such as Hitler. The best political leaders have their country as the source of passion.

however. and making decisions.The lessons from Gandhi's life challenge our beliefs about the standard of leadership -. But on the fundamental values of truth. but violence to the spirit. He tried to be like them with his lion cloth and his commitment to voluntary poverty. He made his share of mistakes but was not afraid to acknowledge them. He asked us to reject not only physical violence. He believed that individuals must have ideals and try to live up to them.beliefs that many of us have come to accept as necessary for success.applicable only to his time and place. and laws ultimately have an impact on people or the environment. and he demonstrated that an idealist could be practical and effective. Maybe its necessary. His claim. He did not strive for consistency except in his quest for the truth. not infallibility. Gandhi believed moral principles had to be included in setting goals. Some of Gandhi's ideas may seem irrelevant today -. While most leaders identify with symbols of power to elevate themselves above the people they lead. Gandhi believed in a single standard of conduct in public and private life -. that if we do not embrace the ideal of nonviolence. he had a message for the ages. He symbolized service rather than power. societies all over the world will deteriorate to the point where life will be intolerable. strategies.a standard founded on integrity derived from the absolute values of truth and nonviolence. He worked for the betterment of all people so they could enjoy freedom from fear and exploitation. Today we talk about controlling physical violence with more violence and controlling spiritual violence with laws. As all policies. was to integrity. nonviolence and service. It becomes more self-evident every day. But I believe that the long-term solution is to put . selecting strategies. Gandhi symbolized the people he was trying to serve.

and leads by appealing to our ideals and our spirit. nonviolence individual who is in the service of humanity. Such a heroic ideal is embodied in Gandhi. the ideal of nonviolence of the brace. u   . and decisions and actions are bound by moral principles.before us. Gandhi's life point the way to a higher standard of leadership in which integrity based on a single standard of conduit is central. especially the young. resists injustice and exploitation. a spirit of service is imperative. the truthful. We need a new heroic ideal: the brave.
