LEADERSHIP FUNDAS
It is better to have an army of rabbits led by a lion than a army of lion led by a
rabbit.- NEPOLIAN
THIS DEFINES THAT Leadership is an art (not science) of influencing,
motivating, inspiring, and transforming people (human resources)
towards achieving organizational goals.
Bass & Avolio (1994) states that there two types of leadership;
Transactional Leadership and Transformational Leadership.
Transactional leaders are leaders who guide or motivate their
followers in the direction of established goals by clarifying role
and task requirements. WHILE Transformational leaders are
leaders who provide individualized consideration and
intellectual stimulation and possess charism
Transformational leadership is not a substitute for
transactional leadership; it is an enhancement. So
focussing the transformational leadership.
TRAITS OF A TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERS
1. Transformational leaders are visionaries Sri Rama
created future vision for Ayodhya and the vision was
clearly communicated to the people of Ayodhya before
leaving to the forest.
2. Transformational leaders are change agents - Sri Rama
changed the kingship of Kiskhinda from Bali to Sugriva
and the kingship of Lanka.
3. Transformational leaders - are courageous people. Sri
Rama was firm and brave to take all the risk to protect the
words his father (King Dasaratha) gave to Kaikeyi.
4. Transformational leaders believe in people - Sri Rama
had complete trust and believes in Sugriva to recover Sita.

5. Transformational leaders are value driven Sri Rama,
never deviated or deviates from the words he had and has
given.

6. Transformational leaders are life long learners - Sri Rama, a
perfect example of life of learner.

7. Transformational leaders have the ability to deal with
complexity, ambiguity and uncertainty - Sri Rama had to make
the painful decision to banish Sita from Ayodhya.

8.Transformational leaders never break promise
Promise given to Sugriva was fulfilled by Rama.

MANAGEMENT LESSON EXAMPLE FROM
RAMAYANA
One of the most obvious incidences, in which
use of management principles is very clearly
visible is that of Hanuman going to Lanka.
His mission was to locate Sita
there and give her Lord Rams message. When
it became clear that Sita was in Lanka, Jamvant
asked Hanuman to go there. He helped him in
realizing his true potential and motivated him to
go in the enemys camp.
Once mentally prepared for
the job and reached there, first thing which
Hanuman did was to completely analyze the
situation in Lanka. He did a complete study
about the Lankans, assessing their strengths
and weaknesses, the various threats and
opportunities which he had in the enemys
camp.

TRENDING WOMEN STATUS
Scriptural women (Devi Sita) was ideal daughter,
ideal wife, ideal mother
She had a silent power of suffering and sacrifice.
Sita swayamvara.
Renounced the comfort of ayodhya.
Abduction by ravana.
Sita held captive in ashokvan.
Sita doubted for her chastity.
Sitas agni pariksha
Sita undergone ordeal to site off an exile
Finally she return to her mother Bhoomidevi
Status of women in RAMAYANA:
Current status of women has IMPROVED dramatically
Visualizing the status of women in scripture women were
always been lead for suffering, devotion and sacrifices all her
life
But currently the status of women are far been changed.
Constitution of India has feeded them with lots many power, to
reduce their sufferings and sacrifices.
They are been compared equal to man now.
Are provided first priority in every field to express their
qualities.
Are provided many reservation to survive independently on
their own will.


CONCLUSION
Never make promise, once you make promise never break it.

Leadership, communication power, Team work, Innovation, devotion and
loyalty.

Never step back to avoid risk because you cant avoid them. But take
them as challenges they make you strong.

Appreciate people for their work neither it is small or large. You need not
to pay anything to talk good to somebody.

Try to learn good lessons even from your enemies.
Always respect the women.
