MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES FROM BHAGAVAD GITA


VISION LEADERSHIP MEDITATION WAY OF KNOWLEDGE WORK COMMITMENT MOTIVATION WORK CULTURE PLANNING

VISION
Defines the way an organization or enterprise will look in the future Shri Krishna the visionary leader for Arjuna conveyed that-

Dont just look at a narrow perspective that you have to fight against your peers, have a vision that this war will end up the evil and is in the favor of societal benefit

Leader has the responsibility of communicating the vision regularly, creating narratives that illustrate the vision, acting as role-models by embodying the vision, creating short-term objectives compatible with the vision

LEADERSHIP
The supply of vision and direction in a situation of confusion and uncertainty Whatever the excellent and best ones do, the commoners follow, so says Lord Krishna in the Gita In one verse the Lord says I do not need to work, yet I am working continuously, because if I stop working, everybody would do the same, resulting in total chaos

YATRA YOGESHWARAH KRISHNO YATRA PARTHO DHANURDHARAH TATRA SREER VIJAYO BHUTIR DHRUVA NEETIRMATIRMAMA
Where there is Krishna, the great master; where there is Arjuna, the great achiever there; prosperity; success; policy; and growth is definite

MEDITATION
One can elevate or degrade oneself by one's own mind Greed, Envy, Egotism, Suspicion, anger and frustration are the obstacles to optimistic working of mind

According to Gita, an uncontrolled mind will take a person for a ride on the dark streets of sin

One can control ones mind through meditation He gave the concept of OM as the meditation tool Thus with a controlled mind, a manager can concentrate on his work without getting attracted towards unfavorable appealing factors

WAY OF KNOWLEDGE
Krishna teaches the path of knowledge (Jnana Yoga)

Lord Krishna emphasised on 'yogah karmasu kausalam'

He conveyed that acquiring of knowledge is superior to any other material activity

A manager must continuously strive for knowledge and be updated Knowledge makes manager free from doubt and directs him to go for correct path to achieve organizational goals

WORK COMMITMENT
Working for the sake of
work, generating excellence for its own sake
Lord krishna inspired Arjuna to attain the state of Nishkama Karma Non- attachment to the fruits or results of actions performed in the course of one's duty

Lord Krishna guided Arjuna that as a warrior, should be committed to his work irrespective of future results

Is a Solution to todays major managerial problem i.e. job dissatisfaction and job switching

MOTIVATION
The driving force (internal and external) which explains behavior During the war, the warrior Arjuna refuses to fight Shri Krishna played the role of teacher (management trainer, developer) to revive Arjunas motivation

Manager must try to understand the employees needs and motivate them accordingly Motivation- A tool for managers to develop willingness for high level efforts

WORK CULTURE
Sri Krishna elaborates on two types of work culture in Gita daivi sampat or divine work culture and asuri sampat or demonic work culture Daivi work culture - involves fearlessness, purity, selfcontrol, sacrifice, straightforwardness, selfdenial, calmness, absence of fault-finding, absence of greed, gentleness, modesty, absence of envy and pride

Asuri work culture - involves egoism, delusion, personal desires, improper performance, work not oriented towards service

Gita emphasis on maintaining Daivi work culture in every organization

PLANNING
Is a blue print of business growth and a road map of development Gita is a part of the epic- Mahabharata in which the kurukshetra war was a part of the divine plan to restore dharma and order upon earth

Krishna played the role of a strategic planner

A manager must plan properly in order to achieve the objectives effectively and efficiently

CONCLUSION

The words, verses, chapters of Gita are meant for the all- round development of the human resources to reach the goal of the individuals, enterprises, organisations, governments and societies

Wherever there will be both krishna lord of yoga and arjunawith weapons of duty and protection, there will be everlasting victory, happiness and morality
