Landmark Forum asks you to be presentable and look at things from the other side of the fence Understanding the point of view of others is important. This is one of the key virtues of being presentable. Who does not like to be presentable in this world? If you ask this question across an audience, you would not find a single raised hand. Now, what does it really mean ‘to be presentable’? The physical personality is certainly one aspect of being presentable. The psychological personality is definitely more important. A pleasing personality can attract people towards you. However, you have to be pleasing enough psychologically as well to make people like you more. You have to be very careful with the words you choose. Using the wrong words can spoil relations instead of strengthening them. The Landmark Forum believes in inculcating such qualities in its participants. The Landmark Forum specializes in imparting leadership qualities in its participants. What is the pre-requisite to become a leader of people? The main pre-requisite is the ability to hold the attention of the people with your words and deeds. If you manage to inspire them with your actions and words, you are on the way to becoming a good leader. One of the biggest qualities of a leader is to understand the view point of the other person. A leader should have the ability to look at things from the other side of the table as well. It is not that he is always right. The other person can be right from his view point as well. A small illustration will prove this point clearly. There was an argument between a father and son about who among the two was right. The son was convinced that he was right whereas the father was trying his best to prove to the son that it is a matter of perception but the son was in no mood to agree. This prompted the father to draw an image of the number ‘6’ on the table and asked his son to read it. From his angle, the son saw the figure as ‘9’. The father explained to him that he was seeing it as 9 because he is seeing things from his point of view. If he changed sides with his father the same number would appear as 6. That does not mean that the father is wrong. He is seeing things from his angle. This satisfied the son and made him appreciate the virtues of looking at things from both the sides. This can broaden your vision and help you take a concerted decision. These might look like simple things but sometimes the simplest things are the most difficult to do in life. The main difference between leadership and management is that management is doing things right whereas leadership is about doing the right things. A leader is one who has the ability to empower people and make them realize the importance of doing the right things.


Another quality of a good leader is the ability to look at the positive aspects of things. This quality can be of great help to you in submitting a positive Landmark Forum review as well at the end of the course.
