About the Book:

All leaders are agents of change. If they are not they cannot be called leaders. It is a positive, conscious change from being led to being the leader- a transformation that is the precursor to success.

Government is the single largest driving force in civil society, and synergic, harmonious action by leaders in government can rapidly lead us to our goals. It must be realised that merely an industrial growth of 8 to 9 percent does not give the complete picture. The power of the silent, sleeping giant called public organization remains to be harnessed.

                                                                                  -          From the Introduction

Leadership in Government-The Art of Work is about performance and results, not about  management principles or models. It talks about how the workforce in various government organisations across the country can make itself more productive by understanding and practicing small steps that will result in making them better people as well as better civil servants.

This is an incisive book about 100 important aspects of working effectively in government. It will make those who head government organizations at various levels reassess their roles and realign themselves with a version that is inclusive and driven by passion, to spread efficiency and, as a result, satisfaction, through effective and result oriented performance.
