5. Age of the Imperfect Leader by Pawan Verma

The book challenges our conventional wisdom on leadership and offers a disruptive approach on the subject. It highlights how traditional leadership
models aim at creating “perfect” leaders by expecting us to overcome our weaknesses and master a definite set of traits. This deficit-based approach
makes us focus more on our weaknesses which ends up in a quest for mediocrity. The book asserts that if you try to be good at everything, you will never be great at anything.
Making a case for strength-based leadership, the author insists that leadership demands excellence, not perfection. The secret of leadership is to be great at
something rather than being good at everything. Therefore, in your leadership journey, you should have the courage to be imperfect and make your strengths so formidable that your weaknesses become irrelevant.
