Mangalyam – Leadership Lessons From Indian History

All of us are obsessed with performance – we are constantly measured by it before we are born and till we die. the Indian understanding of how to improve performance is different from the WEstern Management Science version. The many 1000 lines of Chola epigraphs clearly show – along with the many customs we still observe today – how the Indian approach is very different in how to reconcile between getting the job done and building a relationship. After working in the space of leadership development and in writing a book on Indian history and Leadership development – “Leadership Shastra” Dr.Pradeep Chakravarthy has a clear approach he does as a 2 day session on how to improve performance using an Indian approach. The samvad will focus on this insight and on learnings from his book Leadership Shastra.
