MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

The Dalai Lama has shared his views on what leadership ought to be like. He feels that human beings once born, are here only for a maximum of ninety to one- hundred years, so they must use it to not cause harm to any system. He feels that leaders need to be selfless and compassionate. He also stressed on the importance of mindfulness. For this, management training sessions ought to be organized by companies, focusing specifically on mindfulness. All this will reduce fear, but improve the understanding about other peoples’ situation. Three kinds of leaders are specified in the Buddhist traditions. One is the Trailblazer, who is risk- taking, so leads from the front. The second is the Ferryman. He mentors others across their ups and downs. The third is the Shephard, who carries his entire flock to safety, before doing so himself.
