Listen to stories about daily struggles wearing a turban, highlighting principles of leadership that we can all use in our daily lives. Leadership by Turban is a true story about a young man seeking to balance his religious identity in today’s America.

 

"I wear a turban. What does that mean today in the United States of America? Can I wear my turban and fit into the American mainstream? How do I balance my identity with my daily activities? After years of searching for the answers to these questions, I’ve discovered they don’t lie in the words of great authors, scholars, philosophers or CEO’s. They lie in myself. In my life. In my experiences in academics, politics, business and  religion. These experiences have shaped the values and principles that now guide my life, giving me reason to continue wearing my turban. Through trial and error, I’ve learned more than I’d ever thought possible. And more than I’d care to admit.

Until now, I’ve been reluctant to write down these stories. But I’ve come to believe that truth is the most valuable gift you can share with other people. Who you are and what you do is priceless. That’s why I’m sharing my experience. My stories. My truths. So that we may all come to understand each other a little better. So that we may all find our own definition of what it means to be successful. So that our generation will be prepared to lead.

After listening to the stories, I hope you’ll gain some insight into what it means to wear a turban in America today. It hasn’t been easy. But it has taught me some interesting lessons about leadership." – Ravi Singh
