सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज।
अहं त्वा सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः।।१८.६६।।
A responsible leader gives final confidence to the team members by resolutely assuring that if everything fails he, as a leader of the team, shall not only involve himself in the situation but also shall find the solutions to all problems.
Thus a responsible leader, after giving full love, delegation empowerment and trust to his team members, keeps the ultimate accountability with himself.
He does not abdicate the responsibility and always stands behind to give whatever support is required. This reassurance energises the team members and then they themselves will undertake the mission and complete it facing all the problem and finding optimal solutions.
That is so because the responsible team members fully understand that they can approach the leader only after attempting, endeavouring and working in "all other ways".
The leader's assurance works as an insurance and there is a continuous feeling that even if everything is lost, nothing is lost.
With this assurance and insurance actually nothing will be lost and everything is gained. The courage and conviction of the responsible leadership and the team is the foundation rock of the victorious team.
WHEN THERE IS NO WAY, THE LEADER IS THE WAY.
