THE ESSENCE OF A GREAT LEADER: BOOK REVIEW OF “THE LEADERSHIP OF MUHAMMAD” BY JOHN ADAIR

It has always been a well-known secret that in order to achieve their legendary victories, great leaders like Salahuddin Ayyubi, also known as Saladin (1137 –1193), who conquered Jerusalem in 1187 and Mehmed the Fatih (1432 – 1481), the conqueror of Constantinople adopted the leadership etiquettes of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

So vital to life, so vital to the dynamics of life that we can say with certainty that without energy there would be no life. For life to continually exist in a competitive world, it needs mobility. Life is a force that compels mobility and movement, which requires power that derives from energy. It is the energy that essentially produces the movement. Groups and organisations are no different from living organisms and they too need to be fed a steady flow of energy to stay alive and to keep moving forward. Organisations and groups depend on leadership to create and supply the energy they need in abundance. The deficiency of this “energy” results in stagnation and the absence of this energy...
