#CJP Insights : Would the leader become redundant if the team succeeds in your absence?

Hello,

In India, you often ask why bosses are so unwilling to delegate, why they do not even exhaust their mandatory leaves, why they are so intrusive.

Maybe at the core of this phenomenon is insecurity, driven by an extremely strong culture we have of pulling down people

A cricket tour of Australia has always been a tough ask for anyone – wickets, big grounds and an aggressive opposition.

When Kohli left for an important milestone in his personal life i.e. childbirth, the Indian team was down in the dumps. The team had been dismissed for its lowest Test score of 36.

Everyone said that we were in dire straits without our star captain

Then a lot has changed since that fateful afternoon in Adelaide.

India rose like a Phoenix from the ashes. Due to stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane’s brilliant leadership Down Under, we won

And the reaction was that why does Virat Kohli need to remain a captain anymore

That is the unfortunate part of our culture.  Would the leader become redundant if the team succeeds in your absence?

It was unfair to debate his Virat’s place in a team, which was groomed by him

What are your views on this?

Thanks,

Sonia
