India’s Bhagavad Gita is a Sanskrit text that is increasingly being explored for leadership and management wisdom. We take a literal approach to engaging with the entirety of the Gita’s 700 verses
across its 18 chapters as a coherent whole and integrating the lessons into a linked leadership model.
The model provides a flexible framework highlighting topics recognized as relevant to leadership,
including self-leadership, integrity, virtue, servant leadership, motivation, team dynamics, culture,
ecology, meaning, and purpose
