A spiritual text is perhaps the last place one would seek for leadership advice. However, the Bhagavad Gita is one of the earliest examples of a leadership text we can find.
The Bhagavad Gita of comprises about 700 verses and is a part of the ancient Indian classic, The Mahabharata. While The Mahabharata centers on the power struggle between two groups of royal cousins and their battle in Kurukshetra in North India.
The Bhagavad Gita presents the counsel of Krishna to Arjuna in the battlefield.
The Bhagavad Gita has largely been studied in the contexts of philosophy, theology and literature. However, if we look closely, the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita contains numerous leadership lessons, which are relevant to personal and organizational leadership practices.
One reason the Bhagavad Gita is such a powerful text is because it is an action text, and the focus is all on practice. The other reason, as importantly, is if you pick up this text at different points of time in your leadership and life, it will reveal itself to you in different ways.
After two extremely successful series, we are back with the third series on Leadership Lessons from the Bhagavad Gita. For the second series, we had over 1200 people registered from 23 different countries of the world.
Like in the last two series, Sameer Dua will interpret the Bhagavad Gita from the Generative Leadership lens and draw out powerful practices that have the potential to shift your life and leadership impact.
