"Finally" is a 1991 song by the musician CeCe Peniston. A dance mix of this song was made, and this remixed version was used in many dance music compilations. "Finally" became Peniston's first hit song, peaking at number five on the US Hot 100 in January 1992 and becoming her only U.S. top-ten hit to date. Prior to that, it was also successful on the US Dance chart, where it spent two weeks at number one in late 1991. In addition, the song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart in a remixed version. The song features in the 1998 film Bimboland produced by Ariel Zeitoun. The 7-inch Choice Mix was used in the 1993 film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and featured on its soundtrack album. The song is also featured in the stage musical based on the film. For her ninth tour Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour that resumed on November 11, 2006 at Sydney Entertainment Centre, Kylie Minogue used elements of Peniston's song when performing her 2000 comeback single "Spinning Around", co-written by Paula Abdul. In November 2009, pop musician Lady Gaga used excerpts of "Finally" for the opening of The Monster Ball Tour in her song "Dance in the Dark".

Excellent lessons on Situational Leadership are offered in a Hollywood Movie "Twelve O'Clock High" of 1949, starring Gregory Peck. In this movie, a tough-minded General (Geegory Peck) takes over a bomber unit with low morale, and transforms that unit into a star team with stellar performance. I learnt a great deal about Leadership from this movie - long before my MBA course on Leadership. You can see how a true Leader advances the followers beyond their normal limitations, over the course of their association, by first telling, then selling, followed by collaborating, and finally delegating the assignments. A true leader creates and nurtures many next-generation leaders; the lesson that I learned and have always followed successfully as a committed leader. Thanks to 'Twelve O'Clock High' for such wonderful lessons in Leadership.
