In a country like ours, from independence till date, we have been unable to resolve the issue of the wide and ever- expanding gap between the haves and haves-not in terms of not only wealth but also opportunities. The challenges of opportunity to climb the scale of economic and social ladders of the society, as well as opportunity to live long and be allowed to express your talent, that you were not taught what will be useful to you and your society or that you are not allowed access to opportunities owing to discrimination and you have no income because you are not employed and as such confronted with hunger, lack of access to basic health care and other good things of life. These are all forms of poverty.
For both countries and individuals, prosperity is the key element to quality of life and is also necessary for the nation to be competitive in the world economy. As economies move from production-based to ones based on creativity and innovation, they must grow in ways that strengthen industries, create good jobs and encourage economic investment. To increase wealth and living standards, the economy must promote and sustain diversity, innovation, competition and entrepreneurship.READ MORE

Bass has identified four components to transformational leadership and has creatively figured out a way that all four can start with the letter “I” so that it might be called the 4I Model.
1. Idealized Influence- This component states that transformational leaders act as role models and that followers will seek to emulate their behaviour,in addition to being considered generally extraordinary leaders.
2.Intellectual Stimulation- This component states that transformational leaders include followers in addressing organisational problems and stimulate and support them in being as creative and innovative as possible in identifying solutions. .
Transformational leadership seeks to create a positive change in those who follow.

Keep their ego in check, 2. Self-management, 3. Ability to take the right risks and many more. .
