Imagine you are walking through a busy street in the busiest area of one of the biggest cities and there is a political figure followed by people, he is walking and chatting with them and waving his hand to the shopkeepers and people walking past and calling them by their names the point is how he remembers so many name.

Yes I am talking about Sheikh Rashid Ahmed a political figure of Rawalpindi he knows almost every man of his constituency. How he does it is the funny yet very intelligent way. Actually he uses range of nicknames i.e. Maja, Saja, Gama etc very famous and common in society. When a person comes to him the first thing Sheikh Rashid do is ask him his name and then according to his name and appearance he sort of calls him with a nickname, this nickname is normally not offensive yet it is the wrong form of one's name i.e. Saja for Sajjad Ahmed. Next time whenever that Sajjad Ahmed comes to see sheikh sahib, he will call him Saja.

Normally people are excited by knowing that sheikh sahib still remember him after such a long time. Sheikh Sahib has already won 6 elections in his electorate.

One wonders that how a person can remember so many names and people pass gestures of excitement when being called by their names. This is the man who can animate this crowed of people yet they feel a sense of belonging to the person. It would not be wrong to say that the person possess one of the key attributes of a leader.

Organizations need leaders not only at the top but at the critical positions i.e. the PS (personal secretary) to the CEO and department representatives (the first person one goes and talks to if one happens to visit the particular section). It is the best way to start the conversation by calling somebody with their first name (obviously it should be formal in organizations) it eliminates the invisible hurdles of communication.

It's a big question how leaders become what they are, there are many aspects to this question one is how does a leader make people around him realize that he is the one who could lead them. Knowing people by their first name certainly is one of the leadership skills.
