What a leader should learn from M.S. Dhoni

M.S. Dhoni, yes the world knows him! What he has achieved so far in his cricketing career, nobody else does. He is Indian skipper, known as ‘Maahi’, ‘Capatin Cool’ and lots of other names.

Well, after India became T20 champions and then in 2011 became World champions, soon after that I started hating Dhoni. Trust me, but it’s true. Somewhere in my mind, I thought he is arrogant, proudy and a person who doesn’t respect his seniors and don’t give any value to his team. Trust me when I say this, I mean it.

But in June, 24th 2013, I’ve witnessed of another glory/achivement of Indian team and this time Indian team won the ICC champions trophy 2013 cup. And the Man in highlight is again the Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni.

He was given a team of those players who have either debuting their ODI career or played very limited number of ODI’s or have no experience of playing overseas matches. But in the end, everyone contributed and delivered their best. All credit goes to ‘Maahi’.

What he has done? He showed his trust in #IshantSharma and he proved to be the Game changer/Turning point for #TeamIndia.

* What mantra he (Dhoni) is using?
* Any divine power on him?
* Any Totka he do before every match starts?

Well, the answer to each and every question lies in his Captaincy skills. The way he manages his team, the level of trust he has and the decision making power, the ability to motivate team memeber even if he is not performing and the ability to stay calm, makes him what he is now.

In this article, I am going to talk about what we can learn from Dhoni, how we can adapt some extra ordinary skills and improve ourselves.

Personally, I won’t be giving a lecture kind of thing here.. We all want to be leaders and with the examples like this we can be the masters of our era.
