Life is a mystery and it can never be defined. It can only be lived and experienced. We can learn the life leadership lessons from great people. Life throws many challenges and may give rise to many leadership roles. And some major leadership roles are: Technology Leadership, Business Leadership, Political Leadership, Social Leadership, and Spiritual Leadership.
A value that benefits only a few and not many. “A value is a difference of the cost of output and input.”
Richard Branson says, “I wanted to be an editor or a journalist, I wasn’t really interested in being an entrepreneur, but I soon found I had to become an entrepreneur in order to keep my magazine going.”
Business Leadership is to create a value in the form of products, services, and solutions, and share these values for an exchange.
A leadership that creates a technology that leverages the power of the above values. “The technology is neutral. It absolutely depends on us as to how we use the same.”
Technology plays an important role in the life and growth of people. The technology is neutral and it all depends on us as to how we use the same. A knife can be used to cut an apple or one’s own hand. And it can also be used in an operation theatre by a doctor to save the life of a person.
A leadership that allows the use of power to create the above values.
This is what Jimi Hendrix says, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
A value that benefits many and not only a few. “A value is a difference of the cost of output and input.”
The whole world is one family. And everything is interconnected. There is nothing that lies outside the existence. The whole existence is a one unity. And this philosophy has been called by the ancients as “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”.
A value that benefits everybody and everyone. “A value means now there is no difference and no gap.”
Spirituality has to be a social revolution. The mundane has to be spiritual, and the spiritual has to be mundane. It is not that what you do at home and the office is mundane, and what you do in the Ashram is sacred. Every mundane act has to be a divine act. This is Spiritual Leadership.
Leadership means to create a “value” that benefits the whole of humanity. And a leader is one who “shares” this value with the world. The value differs in each case. The value chain moves forward. It is just like how the raw gold moves from the state of a raw gold to the state of a 24-carat gold on the value chain. Spirituality is, therefore, an inner value chain. It is a process of moving from an ego-center to a conscious-center. The conscious center has a beginning but no end. It is endless and infinite.
