There are still a lot of unknowns, which is causing the economy to slow down, hurting profits and causing people to lose their jobs. No matter how big or small an organisation is, it continues to struggle. This is causing a lot of people to question whether or not capitalism is the right model. When people question “capitalist policies,” there is also a sharp rise in the number of people who lean towards socialism. Is capitalism really so bad? Is socialism worth it? How can we get our countries back on the right track? Where did we go wrong? Why did we go wrong? How should we change our economic course, both as individuals and as a group, to weather the storm? How can we stop the rising and senseless hatred? How do we find balance inside and out? Questions like these have stumped a lot of smart people, but no one has a good answer.
What most people don’t seem to realise is that management is important for everyone with responsibilities, not just those in positions of power. Managing is about making the most of the limited resources you have to create value, make money, and reach a stable level of prosperity. Even though there are a lot of interesting and fun ways to define the topic, not enough is known and done to achieve these goals.
The Vedic Rishis (sages) wrote the Arthashastra and Artha Sutras, which are the oldest books on management and leadership. These Rishis even helped the Kings for free; as their Rajaguru (Royal Mentors.) Some of these Rajaguru even helped build some of the most powerful and wealthy empires of their times. Their lessons on management, leadership, and making money aren’t based on fleeting processes. Instead, they help people stay calm so they can see problems, come up with good solutions, and reach hard goals.
In this special webinar, U. Mahesh Prabhu, an experienced international media, management, and political consultant and the author of the recently published book The VEDIC approach to MANAGEMENT for sustainable LEADERSHIP, explains how modern individuals and leaders can get more clarity, create good opportunities even when there are a lot of unknowns, and achieve sustainable prosperity by knowing, understanding, and realising these timeless yet time-tested Vedic teachings.
