The paper picks on two high profile leaders Rajat Gupta , ex Managing Partner of McKinsy and Rob Diamond, the ex CEO of Barclays and traces the rise and fall of these stalwarts . Their narratives are considered as powerful indicators of greater systemic flaws and not as isolated cases of greed and corruption. The paper attempts to make a point that the corruption, greed, inequality, violence that we see around us is extreme manifestations of our own lives and the choices we make. In a world that has been rendered fragile on the one hand and dangerous on the other is in dire need of a new way of thinking. New leadership will ultimately evolve from people and so it is imperative that people change first. Minds have been used to the extent to which everything has been rendered meaningless, the heart so much for the sake of the self only to find desperate loneliness. It’s time to acknowledge the presence of a soul, to move towards higher aspirations.
