Chandigarh: The Bhagavad Gita, the most sacred ancient text of Hindus, is a source of wisdom. The wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita spells many leadership lessons that are similar to contemporary leadership theories and practices. Peter Senge, one of the most prominent management thinkers of our times, has quoted the Bhagavad Gita in his books “Fifth Discipline” and “Presence.”
Surprisingly, many contemporary leadership topics such as emotional intelligence, situational leadership, character and integrity were already discussed in the Bhagavad Gita thousands of years ago. Against this backdrop Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organizing a one day Interactive Workshop on Leadership Lessons from Bhagavad Gita designed exclusively to help Business Owners and Professionals to develop leadership qualities. CII is organising the workshop on 5 September 2016 (Monday) at CII Northern Region Headquarters, Chandigarh.
