When we talk of women leaders in India, the names that spring to our mind readily, are Indira Gandhi, Naina Lal Kidwai, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Ranjana Kumar, Arundhati Bhattacharya, Chanda Kochhar and Shikha Sharma.
When we talk of leaders, we mean those individuals who are able to give a sense of direction to a mass of people. So we can have good leaders, like Mahatma Gandhi or Mother Teresa or bad leaders, like Adolf Hitler or Pol Pot.
However, when we talk of leaders in the Corporate Sector, we mean individuals who head organisations as they are expected to give direction to their workforce. They become leaders by virtue of their position.
