The theme for India Leadership Summit 2019 is “Excellence and Life Transformation (ExaLT) through Leadership.” The world is going through rapid changes—some good, some bad. Leadership is not just about organisational outcomes. Leadership touches lives and transforms people, nations, and humanity. Christlike leadership is the most suitable philosophy for times such as this. Can we ExaLT God through leadership? Can we bring in excellence and life transformation through Christlike leadership?
