There are very few books that combine the best aspects of two completely different fields to offer essential life lessons to the readers. Leadership Lessons from 22 yards written by Srikanth Ram is one such book and I feel extremely proud about picking it up to read on a whim. The first thing that attracted me to the book was the design of its cover page, which perfectly suits the title besides providing an inkling of what the book might be about. I was also intrigued by the fact that the foreword for the book has been penned by none other than Dilip Vengsarkar, the great cricketing legend. Most importantly, I was impressed by the fact that the author is a major corporate leader who has based this book on his personal experiences and combining his two passions of cricket and business.

The book offers remarkable tips to help the readers refine their skills and mindset to become successful leaders and build high-performance teams besides creating a winning work culture. It does so by chronicling the life events of two brothers Sandeep and Sanju, who are grieving the death of their father. While Sandeep is a budding entrepreneur, Sanju is a passionate cricketer. Both feel inspired by the last words of their father about staying focused on their goals and attaining great success in their respective fields. The book leverages the popularity of cricket in India to help the readers learn real-life lessons from the game of cricket and apply the same in their work to attain excellence. The book brings to fore the resilience of the two brothers in the face of obstacles and their persistence to overcome the same by seeking direction from their heroes both in the cricketing and corporate world.
