What is your philosophy of leadership? How would you describe your leadership style ?
Effective leaders make wise decisions by assessing the situations around them
I firmly believe a leadership philosophy is a set of beliefs and principles which helps to evaluate information and respond to people and situations. It allows you to gain an understanding of values, priorities, approach to decision making, and what you expect from yourself and others. As per my opinion, a good leader uses all three styles i.e. autocratic, democratic, and delegative, depending on what forces are involved between the followers, the leader, and the situation.

What are your thoughts on creating an ambient environment for the students?
It is essential to explore future possibilities by simultaneously progressing in the present
A good environment can be created without a periodical approach.

It may sound difficult, but for a University, the aim and approach should be universal i.e. equal and fair for all.
