Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi’s new chief minister is way different from other politicians. Arvind Kejriwal’s rise over the past couple of years, politically, has been very inspirational. Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) triumphed against all odds to win unexpected number of seats in the Delhi elections. Here are few lessons every professional must learn from Arvind Kejriwal.
Take small steps to effect a big change
Arvind Kejriwal formerly joined the political movement when he joined the campaign for the Lokpal Bill along Anna Hazare. He also wanted to eradicate corruption from the establishment as well. With all his goals set, he first focused on building a foundation with his Aam Aadmi Party and then tried to effect the changes.
Walk the talk
We observe that leaders usually talk about great changes and leave it undone. Kejriwal taught us that it is equally important to fulfill your promises made. He raised the limit of water allocation to Delhi’s residents is an example of this. The promises made should be attended to gain the trust.
To engage social media effectively
Social media these days has democratized and liberalized the electorate process. Politicians of late, are aware of the power of the social media. While, Kejriwal is way ahead of them as he has an apt knowledge of the medium and used it effectively. In future the number of people attending the election rally won’t count; it will be decided over the social media followers.
Instead of making a show and celebrating about the victory over Sheila Dixit and his party’s results in the Delhi election, he suggested what is needed to be done and his future plans for betterment. Humbleness is very essential for a leader. It’s a lost trait now a day. Staying humble is a plus point in every aspect.
Have a sound strategy
With all the claims the AAP were making, it would be impossible to fulfill if it was not backed with strong strategies. Even the smallest of ideas need a proper strategy to accomplish.
Impossible is nothing
One of the biggest lessons that can be learned from Kejriwal’s success is that, we are limited by our fear and selfishness. From Mr. Nobody to where he stands today defines that a true leader always sees opportunity where everyone else sees failure.
The man in form Arvind Kejriwal has many attributes that a person can follow. He sets an inspirational path which his followers can follow.
