Setting up an IT Testing Services venture during the challenging times made me search for the characteristic traits of successful leaders from history, which have been deployed successfully for centuries. I realized that the Leadership is all about "organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal". So, it became evident for me that the values of leadership is not intended towards increasing the wealth, prestige, power or scope of something. It is nothing but concentrating on achieving a “common goal”.

Transition from a Learner to Transformer:
Being in the IT services industry for more than a decade and as a techno-commercial enthusiast who witnessed the IT services businesses growing, I started adopting new methodologies and measurements developed after influential reviews that were ultimately reestablishing the viable approach to the act of leadership that was aimed at setting up a “common goal” than setting up an enterprise. The transition from an “Learner” to a “Practitioner” and then to a “Transformer” in the IT industry was a drastic shift and to etch a mark among the successful Technopreneur requires a diverse craftsmanship in the technology domain. Savvy leadership, is all about learning early in their careers that it is not about self-aggrandizement, rather it is more about enabling those around you and placing them into positions from which they can succeed. To succeed and possess favorable traits of Leadership, initially I will have to define the roles of actions against self and grooming your harbingers for every level makes the business sustainable. However, I would be glad to share a set of new methods and measurements developed after influential reviews that ultimately re-established the leadership roles internally.

The leadership traits are classified into Learner, Engager, Designer, Optimizer and Transformer. Each of them has distinctly defined roles to play such as learning from principles of knowledge, engaging the experience into the system, designing the processes, optimizing the resources and transforming opportunities to worthy businesses respectively. This enables the entire ecosystem, spanning both aspects of executive and governance, making the enterprise work as a metamorphosed unit towards achieving a “common goal”.

Right Approach Yields Success: As the roles were defined, the approach to deploy them across the organization gained a momentum. Therefore, only a defined course of conduct was mandate for each role. The business was more into transforming the existing systems to reach new heights, and hence designing reinforcements rather than traditional approaches had to be done. As engaging the right set of practices at right time will give earnest outcomes on time, building the proper set of customary ways of operations in a similar way was needed; making it optimized to seize the opportunities before your competitors reach out. Once through, transforming opportunities at the enterprise degree gives a successful list of well-chosen clientele.

As entrepreneurship in technology domain, is vibrant & volatile, nourishing aspirations into same must be always backed by a rapid perk up. While the conventional view of leadership is rather satisfying to people who "want to be told what to do", critics say that one should question the rationale behind it.
