Indic Perspectives for Practicing Conscious Leadership
That The Upanishads and The Gita contain timeless wisdom that can be (and is being) leveraged for leadership and management is well known.
As “Conscious Leadership” principles are gaining critical importance in the turbulent world we live in, Indic Wisdom would contribute significantly to leadership evolution in the decades ahead!
To this end, this discussion will center around two frameworks introduced by Raj in his first book “Open our Minds: Science of The Gita, Part-1”, (a) SEES and (b) MEDYK.
SEES is Spiritualistic Evolutionary Empirical Science. This framework aims to blend our materialistic and empirical scientific thinking and spiritualistic thinking, rather than focus on the divergence of these constructs. When we make conscious choices professionally and personally, it is our consciousness working in combination with empirical observation. How can we make better choices and decisions at the confluence of the Seer-Seen, making sure that the observer and observed are BOTH considered in decision making? We will discuss some proposals to be able to do this, and how we can bring this into our daily life.
MEDYK is like a “subset” operating under SEES, forming the “how” of SEES, everyday. MEDYK = the daily recommended cycle of “Meditation-Exercise-Diet-Yoga-Karma Yoga.” While this may not sound unique, we need to have the MEDYK take care of us automatically on a daily basis – which, essentially, will help us with Conscious Leadership. It is this trait of MEDYK which will operate uniquely for each of us. As part of this framework we will look at specific recommendations from Sree Krishna in The Gita.
For both frameworks and how they can be foundational for us to live and lead consciously, real-life examples will be shared and discussed.
