butter. In this time a teamwork and leadership of Krishna
- Krishna being the charioteer (of Arjun) was again an
excellent move the chief strategist and the supreme
commander could always directly communicate being
situated very close to each other. So to build an effective
team share your responsibilities.
2. The interest of the individual should be align with

lines alone because his agenda was for the team.
13. 3. Right man for the right job

war to seek blessing from elders and also figured out the
secrets of their weakness. He took a calculated risk. He an
effort to all the assembled people to change sides if they
wanted to. He knew well of the lack of cohesiveness
among the Kauravas.
15. Management Process:
Planning & Organization
Krishna, of the Vrishni family (cousin to the
Pandavas and Kauravas) had already established
himself as a powerful warrior and prince in Mathura,
where he had re-established righteousness after
destroying the evil ruler King Kamsa and establishing
a kingdom in Dwaraka.
16. Krishna befriended Arjuna in Mathura. He had
been watching the evolving conflict between the
Pandavas and Kauravas.
He eventually intervenes to arbitrate the conflict and
becomes the focal point of the war.
Krishna is revealed to be God manifested on earth,
delivering a message of universal salvation.
17. Krishna intervenes in the Pandava-Kaurava conflict.
Krishna refused to fight in the war, but he offered
himself as charioteer (for one side) and his invincible
army (for the other side).
The Kauravas chose to accept Krishna’s army.
The Pandavas chose Krishna himself, even though his
role would be confined to guiding the chariot of his
cousin and friend Arjuna.
18. The personality of Krishna
What is impressive about the whole piece is the
personality of Krishna. He is, as it were, the very
embodiment of the universal teaching he is giving.
The message is given on the battlefield, not in the
solitude of a forest hermitage, or a secluded mountain
Stand in the middle of the battle of life and be calm,
think clearly and act from the higher standpoint. This is
Krishna’s message. He himself is the superb example of
the teaching put into practice.
19. A synopsis of the last lecture
In our last lecture, we saw Krishna’s immediate response
to the despondency of Arjuna on the battlefield. He told
him to snap out of it. “This is not the behavior of a
If the depression is mild, such words of encouragement
have the desired effect. In this case, the problem is
deeper since it is existential in nature.
So Krishna resorts to the highest teaching he can give,
namely the essence of the Upanishadic teaching of the
immortality of the Supreme Self.
“Life and death are part of the cosmic process, But the
Self is indestructible and immortal. It is not slain when
the body is slain.”
20. What is the effect of this
Even this teaching does not seem to have any effect.
So Krishna makes a plea from a worldly perspective. “If
you abandon your work, people will forever recount your
abandonment. And living such a life is worse than
death. Therefore, stand up and fight!”
This still does not energize Arjuna to go into battle. So
now begins Krishna’s brilliant discourse and a synthesis
of the four yogas.
21. Krishna continues
“Action should be guided by intelligence, not by self-
interest. One who has joined himself to buddhi, or
illumined reason, and works, is said to be skillful in
action. Yoga is said to be this skill in action.”
Yogah karmasu kausalam.
In these verses, Krishna outlines his theory of work and
gives two definitions of yoga. The first is evenness of
mind and the second is skill in action. Both of these
attitudes have to be combined to gain a proper
understanding of this philosophy of work. At the same
time, we must not be attached to the fruits of our work.
22. “But one who is of disciplined mind, who moves among
objects of sense with the senses under control, free from
attachment or aversion, such a one attains purity of
spirit. For the uncontrolled, however, there is no
intelligence, nor s there the power of concentration.
Without concentration of mind, there is no peace. For
the restless mind, how can there be happiness?”
“When the mind runs after the roving senses, it carries
away all understanding just as the wind carries away a
ship on the waters. What is night for all beings is the
time of wakefulness for the sage. What is the time of
wakefulness for all beings is night for the sage.”
The meaning of the last part is an indication of priorities.
When the world is dazzled by the glitter of sense
objects, the sage is focused on understanding reality
and touching the very substance of the phenomenon of
life. Thus the mind of the sage is asleep to what the
world is awake to. Similarly, the world is asleep to what
the sage is awake to.
Directing is an art of getting things done through
and with people, efficiently and effectively.
The directing power of lord krishna contained
decision making and control over his people.
Lord krishna gave 3 goals for directing his sena:
Paritrayana sadhunaam- welfare for saints
Vinashaya dushkritaam- destroy evil
Dharmasansthapanaay sambhavani yuge yuge- to
establish and strenghen religion in every era
The biggest example of directing strategy of lord krishna
can be understood by following example:
26. When arjun reached the battle field he lost his
determination to fight when he saw his young and
old relatives as his opponets and feeling that he will
have to kill them. He resisted to fight and dropped
his arms. That time lord krishna directed him and
said that you should focus on your goal.
27. Management Process:
Controlling an army of 1.53 million soldiers and
warriors to fight against a bigger army was not an
The 1.53 million soldiers were divided in seven
divisions led by a commander each further
controlled by a supreme commander who himself
was guided by Pandavas and Krishna.
In the Kurukshetra war, "Arjuna" the great disciple of
"Lord Sri Krishna" also came into such a de-motivated.
In that war "Arjuna" refused to fight in battle as he got
infatuated & started thinking of his enemies as his own
near & dear ones.
His mind became week & highly de-motivated.
He told his master "Lord Sri Krishna" that he is going
away from the war & do not want to fight on the battle
Arjuna's mental health became weak & he got deeply
29. How lord Krishna Motivate to
Lord Krishna has got all the tactics to achieve the mental
equilibrium (emotional balance) and to overcome any
Lord krishna motivated him by given his speech ,which
was later named “BHAGWAT GITA” Which is still read
and followed by His follower
"Lord Sri Krishna said: You have a right to perform your
prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action.
Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities,
and never be attached to not doing your duty."
After listening and followed by leaders order Arjun recovered and
decided to fight in the War against his enemies
This is the an outcome of krishna’s motivation to arjun

Krishna was Arjuna's charioteer and
counsellor in war
Krishna’s excellent strategy and directly
communicate with Arjuna's to build an
effective team who share their
32. Strategy 2:-
The interest of the individual should not exceed
the team interest
The best man not the one with the best capabilities
but one with the greatest commitment
Abhimanyu , A sixteen years old kid ventured beyond
enemy lines alone, he took a great part of the army
down with him.
His interest was for team and not a personal one
33. Strategy 3 :-
Teamwork still succeeds when
individual efforts fails.
Pandavas were fight in the war as single against enemy
whenever individual efforts get fail in the war it becomes
a team and fight against the enemy
34. Strategy 4 :-
Right man for the right job
The moral is an effective team which is made by
selecting the right individuals.
Shikhandi vs Bhisma
Arjun vs Karna
Bhima vs Duryodhana and his brothers
Bheeshma said that he wont kill the Pandavas in war.
Karan promise to kunti not to kill any of the Pandavas ,
35. Strategy 5 :-
Inspire ,stimulate ,counsel your team moments of
Lord Krishna went over to the enemy side on the first day of
war, he went to seek blessing from elders and also figured
out the secrets of their weakness
He made offer to all the assemble people to change side if
they wanted to .
Yutsu ,son of Dhutarastra crossed over to the Pandavas
,this exposed the weakness of kauravas.
He was knew well of the lack of team spirit in enemy team.
Not acting at the best interest of team
Like Bheeshma said that he wont kill the Pandavas in war,
Karan promise to kunti not to kill any of the Pandavas.
36. Strategy 6:-
Kunti was the authority supreme for the Pandavas
Whatever the mother says is Dharma
Draupadi was a companion in whatever the Pandavas
Abhimanyu and Gatotkach were brought up by the
them so their influence was huge
Women = Better Half ,Any team which doesn’t have
woman is unbalanced
It is good to have the women’s idea while decision
Krishna told Kunti to demand for promise from
Karna to do not kill his brother in War .
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do
something you want done because he wants to do it.
We all agreed that lord krishna was GOD and almighty
that he could have done this task himself without
involving a single person in the war
While in the battle of Mahabharat he had non
combatant role and Pandavas won the battle is due to
his extra ordinary Leadership Skill to achiveing 100%
wining target .
And thus we call him a Greatest Leader in the world .
