A good leader is a visionary person who can foresee the future. Many leaders are shortsighted and have narrow-minded approach or narrow understanding to a particular situation. Short sightedness is so common is that people feel that they cannot accurately predict the future. Good leaders and managers should look beyond their current activities. Focusing on small issues might hamper future prospects. In Marketing, it's called marketing myopia which is the mistake of paying more attention to the specific issues than to the benefits and experiences produced by the same.

A good leader can turn unproductive members of his/her team into productive ones. New research has found some Australians still see older people as a burden on society. Deaken university's Associate Professor David Mellor says young people perceived older people as unproductive. Old people are considered to be unproductive because maybe they have nothing else to dream for or long for. In Bangladesh old people(55+) who are still working are sometimes seen to be gossip mongers. Some of them are seen to talk too much on unnecessary issues while some of them tend to be biased on their own judgment.  

A good leader knows how to make his/her unproductive(if so!) old employee busy by delegating due responsibilities and thus, turn him or her into a productive employee of the organization.

Punishment cannot always be a solution to a problem; motivation is always effective in solving a problem.

In many organizations in Bangladesh, skilled people are underpaid while people of average caliber are overpaid and overvalued..The reasons are many. Some people have face-value while others have nepotism. Some have buttering or flattering skills. Values should be based on abilities. A good leader can identify who should be motivated, recognized, and valued and paid how much....

Some bosses in some organizations in Bangladesh are very rigid while others are autocratic. Some have ego problem. They don't want to listen to others. They take decisions alone. They think they are always right. Time is changing. Bosses should be democratic.  They should be objective, flexible, wise and considerate.
