Management is the art of getting things done through others. But as explained by Bob Nelson, we get the best effort from others not by lighting a fire beneath them, but by building a fire within. Building the fire within others has to begin with building the fire within us. People learn far more from others’ actions than their words. Unless we are ourselves inspired, we can’t inspire others. This means management is about managing the leaders and leadership style. Leadership also means promoting a positive work culture, creating an environment of values, integrity, trust and shared interest.
But the problem is that present Management Systems deal with the problems at superficial, material, external and peripheral levels. The management thoughts are based mostly on the lure for materialism and a perennial thirst for profit irrespective of the quality of the means adopted to achieve that goal.
The Bhagavad-Gita offers an inside-out approach to leadership, for it counsels a conflicted leader to go deep within to the core of his self and find therein the wisdom to shoulder the demanding responsibilities of leadership. It clearly positions personal leadership as the foundation of public leadership. Bhagavad Gîta tackles the issues from the grass roots level of human thinking because once the basic thinking of man is improved it will automatically enhance the quality of his actions and their results. The Gītā contains timeless management and leadership lessons for the contemporary organizations.
