Leadership Sutras from 'Old Indian Wisdom'

Session Type: Experience/Research Report Timebox: 45
Summary:

Srimad Bhagvad Gita is predominantly considered as a work of ancient Indian wisdom, widely studied in the context of philosophy, theology and ancient literature .However, it’s yet to explored in the context of leadership In his book The fifth Discipline Peter Senge says- “In these times of unprecedented global stresses, leaders of all sorts need to achieve deeper levels of clarity and connection (with nature and their higher selves) than traditionally required in order to do business as usual. So, it’s not surprising that many are renewing serious study of ancient wisdom traditions of all sorts, including timeless texts like the Bhagvad Gita.” This talk is based on research and writing of many eminent scholars, leaders, thinkers and management gurus like Mahatma Gandhi, Lokmany Tilak, H.Dale Burke, John H. Maxwell, Andy Stanley, Peter Senge and many more and my personal experience and years of practice of teachings of Bhagvad Gita.

Key Takeaways:

By end of this talk participants will be able to understand the greatness and relevance of ancient Indian wisdom. Participants will be able to have great understanding of what a timeless manual, Gita can impart about art of living in context of Leadership (Agile Leadership).
