Leadership

This video talks about the qualities of a leader, and how the role of a leader is about taking care of others (whether it is the organisation or people connected with it: the employees, the customers, or the shareholders). Unlike the Western model which tries to work based on just rules, the Indian model thinks of everything, including rules, in relation to the context in which they are to be applied.

Topics in this video

  • The perspectives of Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the transformer).
  • How rules are always dependent on the context.
  • The leader is also subject to the rules (explained using Ram as an example).
  • In Western philosophy, the hero is someone who defies the Gods, breaks the rules and wins.
  • In Indian philosophy, the focus is not on personal achievement and aggrandisement, but on sacrifice and the betterment of all.
