Swamiji addressing promoters & executives of Vishal Infrastructure

5th Jul, 2017
LEADERSHIP FROM ORDINARY TO EXTRAORDINARY
Poojya Swami Sukhabodhananda addressed the promoters and executives and families of Vishal Infrastructure on 5th July 2017 at Eagleton Resorts.
 
What makes a leader an ordinary or an extraordinary leader and what are the dynamics which contribute to such a leadership was the essence of the session. Not only were there nuggets that he presented, interspersed with thought provoking and impacting couplets in Hindi and Urdu shayaris,which kept receiving applause and acknowledgements from the participants each time they were expressed, but instigated them to consider their own strategies that they had adopted in various spheres of their life, be it in their personal, family and also in their work zones.
 
Four types of leadership styles Swamiji spoke about namely
1.Bad Leader: is one who is always complaining about people and situations
2.Average Leader: one who does his work as a mere duty and hence ritualistic
3.Good Leader: is one who gives good information
4.Best Leader: is one who inspires not only himself but also his subordinates towards the vision and mission of the group or organisation. 
 
The presentation as usual was full of humour. Swamiji quoted the Gita sloka where Lord Krishna persuades Arjuna to fight the enemy from a space of cheerfulness. PRASANNA CHETASAHI AASHUHU BUDDHIHI PARVATISHTHATI. Cheerfulness is the energy which instils a sense of positivity in one’s action. 
 
Audio visual presentation of leadership strategies based on martial arts techniques was one of the highlights of the talk.
 
1.Learn to centre yourself first
2.Observe the opponents centre (opponent here is the problems or challenges one faces)
3.Enter the centre of the opponent
4.Break the opponents centre
5.If you find that the opponent is strong enough to counter attack, then move away and then freshly enter with alternatives.
 
For this to happen one must adopt a learning strategy which Swamiji elaborated as follows

1.First select a good master

2.Learn from the master

3.Learn from the learnings which you have learnt

4.Master the learning

5.Apply the learnings in real time.

A standing ovation was the response from all the participants which concluded the session.
