Principles of Vedic Leadership
Vedic Leadership (VL) emerges from a highly developed self-awareness of leaders who transcend surface reality and connect with unbounded consciousness, the broad essential wholeness of the world. The most important Vedic principles for leadership relate to the nature of the Self and of Action – i.e. who we are and what we do. The key Vedic concepts – of moral duty (dharma), and dispassionate action (karma) articulate a simple Vedic leadership formula as follows: Authentic leaders are self-realized people who do their work dispassionately according to their moral duty. VL potentially leads to a sustainably growing organization that engages the wholeness of being, and fullness of knowledge, for mistake-free action on everyone’s part. In such an organization, everyone performs their specific assigned role to the best of their natural ability and talent, while keeping the greater good of the whole organization in mind. Our V-theory of transcendence enables multiple techniques for leaders to increase their self-awareness. A case study of a multinational business organization in the IT industry shows how operating from the Vedic ideal of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (Maha Upanishad VI.71-73) or ‘whole world as one family’, this business experienced rapid and sustainable growth for over a decade. There are implications for leadership and transformation in organizations as well as for society for addressing complex challenges.
