  1. 1. Dhonis style Of management.07/05/12 03:31 AM by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 1 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  2. 2. WhatMahendra Singh Dhoni asCEO of theIndian cricket team didto ensure the countrywon the World Cup willbe etched as learningsfor leaders across allwalks of life. Captains ofIndia Inc, leadingbusiness schools and HRleaders have taken noteof Dhonis style ofmanagement. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 2 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  3. 3. Experimentative,innovative and risk-takingare some of thecharacteristics beingattributed to him. So whatreally is Dhonismanagement style? "Hesets stretch goals andworks determinedly toachieve them by gettingthe best out of his team,"says Adi Godrej,chairman, Godrej Group,who has also taken on anew role as chairman ofThe Indian School ofBusiness. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 3 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  4. 4. Dhoni is being described as a trueleader who did not hesitate to pushhimself up the batting order in thefinal, when the team needed him themost. "He led the attack from the frontand was not afraid to make thischange. He knew well that had hefailed, he would have been severelycriticized but yet he fearlessly took upthe challenge at a critical time in theIndian innings," says Harsh Goenka,chairman, RPG Group. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 4 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  5. 5. And what does one learn from Dhonis leadership skills? "Takemeasured risks and back your team to deliver," said GunitChadha, CEO, Deutsche Bank India. "A leader should maintain hiscalm. He should know his business well and take appropriatedecisions in changing contexts," said Misra. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 5 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  6. 6. One could see how these characteristics came to the fore when, in a crisis situationduring the World Cup (India had lost two crucial wickets of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in the earlyovers), Dhoni kept his cool and led India to victory. "Dhoni has been consistent match after match. He has stuckhis neck out and accepted his mistakes," said Deepti Bhatnagar, faculty, Organisational Behaviour, IIM-Ahmedabad. Whats more, the captain succeeded in building a team where young people can come up with theiropinions. "In a situation where a much younger player like Virat Kohli can give his opinion towards a senior playerlike Sachin without inhibitions itself speaks volumes about the team culture," said Bhatnagar. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 6 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  7. 7. Nehras comeback against Pakistan is another good example ofhow Dhonis faith in him paid off. As co-authors Bill Conaty andRam Charan have said in their book, The Talent Masters - Whysmart leaders put people before numbers: "You can liberate yourcapacity and courage as a leader if you continually plumb thedepth of your inner core. Only by doing this can you understandthe role it plays in the changing complexities of your job." Dhonihas proved to be a smart leader. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV07/05/12 03:31 AM 7 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  8. 8. 7LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM M.S.DHONI’S CAPTANCY by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV07/05/12 03:31 AM 8 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  9. 9. Magnetic Personality binds theteam Acceptance as a natural leader is perhaps the biggest strength that any leader can posses. With his down to earth approach, complete trust in his team members, personal standards of excellence and natural motivational ability MSD has enabled his personality to gain acceptance, get exceptional performance and reinforced self belief in the team. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 9 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  10. 10. Strategizes intelligently to gain the edge Choosing the team is always a challenge for there are many if’s and but’s that constantly keep lurking till the last moment. Yet, MSD with his astute thinking strategises the team composition as well as game plan in consultation with the coach and senior team members. It is also evident that at times he has gone by his gut instinct to vividly visualise the end result and achieve it even if it meant taking some chances. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV07/05/12 03:31 AM 10 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  11. 11. Dares to take risks that make the difference Since strategies cannot be fool proof and a true leader has to be willing to take calculated risks. MSD has shown ample evidence of it when he has dared to play Nehra in the semi-finals ( much against popular sentiments and naïve logic) and took a chance with the temperamental Sreeshanth in the finals. In fact he was candid enough to admit that in the semi- finals he read the wicket wrong hinting that he did gamble in the team selection. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 11 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  12. 12. mility is at the heart of his leadership style You will rarely find MSD hogging centre stage; in fact like the perfect leader he lets his team members believe that they achieved it themselves. He has grounded him self with humility knowing very well that when the going is good he will get credit but when the tables are turned he would have to put up with the brickbats that often accompany the leaders job. In most pictures that the press published, of the winning team taken which was taken soon after the match ended, MSD is conspicuously missing or relegated to the background just reinforcing his humility in acknowledging collective team effort. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 12 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  13. 13. Operates unflappably to ensure that all are grounded MSD is never animated nor excited no matter what the situation. This makes him an exceptional leader, for controlling ones emotion under stress is perhaps a rare blessing in many leaders. The calm manner in which he readily agreed to taking the toss a second time when there was a mix up in the toss, giving Sreeshanth 8 overs despite having alternatives, promoting himself in the batting order despite having a poor run with the bat are testimony to his maturity and temperament. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 13 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  14. 14. Never shirks from taking responsibility and giving credit By promoting himself in the batting order he was taking a risk since he had a poor run of form but it was his belief that he had to take charge out there in the centre and lead by example. In saying that the coach endorsed his decision to bat higher up in the order, he was merely stating a fact that he respected the contribution of the coach Gary Kirsten and valued his sage counsel. Soon after winning one of his earliest statements about the victory pertained him being relieved from having to answer questions about team selection in case the team had lost thereby implying that he had a major role to play in the team selection for which he took responsibility. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 14 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
  15. 15. Inspirational, instinctive, impulsive, intriguing style gives the winning edge. In acknowledging Gambirs crucial innings in the finals, he was candid enough to articulate that he would have loved Gambhir to have got a century but that Gambhir had only himself to blame for getting out. Giving Sachin Tendulkar 2 overs to bowl in the finals in front of his home crowd was both a tactical move ( Tendulkar has often broken partnerships) and an impulsive move ( to let Tendulkar hold centre stage).In choosing to promote himself in the batting order was both an inspirational and intriguing move for it could have a backfired badly if he had got out cheaply. by Dr.Rajesh Patel,Director,NRV 07/05/12 03:31 AM 15 MBA,email:1966patel@gmail.com
