Leadership is omni-requirement, be it in a smaller organisation of a few people or a big one. The task of the leader is essentially inspirational and direction setting, which begins from a home. Akin to one such organisation where the managing direction is essentially handled by a mother, her leadership Qualities act as a great asset towards societal development. Since the lady has undergone a metamorphosis during the graduation from a woman to motherhood, she develops the necessary (emotional) intelligence for leading her team (family) to success.
This work cites the roles and competencies of a mother as to how her qualities are vital towards the development of her siblings as good future managers. Towards this objective she must be holistically effective and efficiently waste free/lean. When her attribution focuses upon various processes to improve through yogic/holy or spiritual contemplations, the development is termed as Holean (Thareja, 2010a). It includes the conscientiousness or thought process which makes a person akin of the character one displays, which is called in organic hierarchy a ‘Holon’ (inseparable) (Thareja, 2010 b).
Though the mother has many functions and roles, yet the effectiveness and meticulousness through which she plans, controls and maintains Quality in each of them, to realise holistic family objectives, marks her importance in the house. Conceptual necessity of competency (vis-a-vis competitiveness) has been emphasised, and how she achieves the necessary orientation to derive productivity in product realisation is explained, basing discussion upon Thareja’s AUM model.
