Mahendra Singh Dhoni has developed a reputation for being one of the greatest leaders that the game of cricket has ever seen.
Under Dhoni’s captaincy, India won the 2007 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20, the Commonwealth Bank Series of 2007–08, the 2010 Asia Cup, the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup and the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. The list of his achievements would use my entire column space if I didn’t stop here.
Dhoni has an arsenal of leadership skills that can apply to business and entrepreneurs.
Even though Dhoni hails from a modest rustic background, he never let this hold him back. He is always confident, forthright and often surprises audiences and media with his comments. Not holding back and being true to yourself carries you far in the corporate as well as the sporting world.
Though he might have retired from test cricket and recently stepped down as captain of India in limited overs cricket but this only means that it is an end of an era as he will continue to entertain us through his batting and wicketkeeping.
