Story of a ‘Failed’ Leader... - A new perspective- Teaching from “Srimad Bhagavad Gita”
Leadership is a universal topic & every one of us is affected by it in one way or the other.Several research reveals that there exist a “leadership gap” in organizations, societies & countries which is one of the biggest scarcity.
Leadership theories (Better to call Western) have evolved over last 100 years. while we have a great legacy in this subject.
Personally, I'm deeply inspired by Ancient Indian Knowledge System as such and more
specifically by "Srimad Bhagavad Gita".
I'm ardent lover of Srimad Bhagavad Gita and actively following it's teachings since i was in 6th standard.From then till now i have gone through almost all the famous commentaries and books written having Srimad Bhagavad Gita as it's center point.
Since last few year (specifically since 2012) what i found Gita is having some interesting set of ideas and deep rooted knowledge about leadership.
It's quite big topic to discuss in 45 minutes so i'll focus only on certain elements (may be 4 or 5 leadership elements in detail).
Outline/Structure of the Case Study

By end of this talk participants will be able to understand the greatness and relevance of ancient Indian wisdom.
