2. Strong Vision: focuses upto 5kms from the air
Focused: when an eagle sites prey even a rodent from this distance, he
narrows his focus on it & sets out to get it
Storm loving: the eagle uses the wings of the storm to rise & is pushed up
higher. Once it finds the wing of the storm, the eagle stops flapping and uses the
pressure of the ranging storm to soar the clouds and glide. This gives the eagle an
opportunity to rest its wings
Teacher/Trainer: during the time of the training young ones to fly, the
mother eagle throws the eaglets out of the nest and because they are scared they
jump into the nest again. next, she throws them out and takes off the soft layers of
the nest, leaving the thorns bare. When the scared eaglets jump into the nest
again, they are pricked by thorns. Shrieking & bleeding they jump out again this
time wondering why the mother & father eagle who love them so much are
torturing them . Next , mother eagle pushes them of the cliff into the air. As they
shrink in air, father eagle flies out and picks them up on his back before they fall &
brings them back to the cliff. This goes on for sometime until they start flapping
their wings. They get excited knowing that they can fly & not fall. The father &
mother eagle supports them with their wings.
3. Survives Change:
The Eagle can live upto 70 years, but to reach this age, it has to take
one of the hardest decisions in life.
When it crosses the age of 40 its long & flexible talons can no longer
grab prey which serves as food. Its long & sharp beak becomes bent.
Its old aged & heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck
to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then the eagle is left with only
two options : die or go thru a painful process of CHANGE which
lasts 150 days, the process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top
& sits on its nest, there the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until
its plucks it out. After plucking it out the eagle will wait for a new
beak to grow and then it will pluck out its talons. When its new talons
grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers and keeps
doing it until he is completely bare and after 5 months, the eagle takes
its famous flight of re-birth and lives for another 30 years
4. A Leader should have a Vision & remain focused no matter
what the obstacle comes
A Leader should use Storms of its lifes (obstacles, troubles
etc.) to rise to greater heights
It is very important for a leader to teach its people, if a
leader has to teach them the hard way, a leader must. Yet,
a leader must be protective of them until they learn
Difficulties are like divine surgery
Many times in order to survive we have to start a change
process. Only freed from the past burden can we take
advantage of the present
5. There is always a wild horse in us and one in which
we, as a person or leader needs to tame or put it
under control. That wild horse can be our emotions
and feelings. The leader should be emotionally stable,
and in fact, possess high emotional quotient (EQ). the
leader should have “the uncontaminated heart”
[purity of heart, care for his or her people] and the
clarity of mind [to set goals and get the tasks or job
6. A business can flourish similar to a team of strong horses, running
purposefully in unison.
It is worthy to note that horses also have a great sense of balance, the
unconscious sense of where the body and limbs are at all times.
In this aspect, leaders need to be high in self-monitoring, with a good
sense of balance and flexibility, mixing with all kinds of people.
Having a good sense of balance and a wide area of interests, a leader
would not be too rigid, lop-sided and easily stressed.
7. The tortoise has a hard shell protecting its inner body,
and this makes the tortoise resilience. Giving a hostile
environment, the tortoise strategically protects itself
inside the shell patiently awaits the next opportunity to
venture out and explore the surroundings.
Likewise, a leader should be steadfast and preserve; the
leader is often a determined and resilient person,
weathering crises or effecting turnarounds of
businesses. It represents the virtue of patience in
8. Even monkeys at times fall from the trees”. Leaders
also make mistakes, and it is good that leaders learn
from these mistakes.

10. I am not a good leader,
but trying to be one someday!
