3 Kinds of Leaders: Builders, Maintainers and Destroyers

There are three kind of 'leaders', namely builders, maintainers and destroyers.
- Builders are always with a new vision and they work towards the vision by selling their vision to their followers by inspiration, performance and guidance. They are the people who can see the future, visualize new dimensions and make changes in attitude, perceptions and out look in the society. They believe in team building, cooperation, commitment and dedication. They always motivate their team members, encourage them and appreciate their achievement.
- Maintainers are the people who just continue with what they have ensuring the safety of their belongings, nothing added new.
- Destroyers are the people who damages themselves and their society (followers). Mostly they are self appointed leaders with vested interests and personal agendas. They lack a common vision. They can do a very little in team building, motivating people and accomplishing any common task.
