Gandhi and Leadership free pdf From the pages of recent history, Gandhi emerges as a grand strategist, an exemplary leader, and an uncanny master of human nature. His leadership style was "follower-centric" and "contextual." In Gandhi and Leadership, Professor Dhiman explores the moral and spiritual-philosophical foundations and context of Gandhi's approach to leadership. What sets it apart from most existing works on Gandhi's life and leadership is its special emphasis on the spiritual and moral anchorage of his leadership. The book focuses on seven Gandhian values that are most relevant in the contemporary workplace: authenticity/personal integrity, harmlessness (ahimsa), truthfulness (satyagraha or truth-force), transparency, humility, self-discipline, and selfless service. This book skillfully weaves history, biography, memoirs, anecdotes, stories seamlessly to create a values-driven road-map for modern leaders. Dhiman applies this conceptual framework of value-based approach to leadership to explore and unravel the leadership secrets of Gandhi. He presents Gandhi's leadership principles and practices that are based on the moral and spiritual values of truth, non-violence, transparency, humility, self-discipline, and selfless service. These values present a broad spectrum view of practices that are sorely needed to be cultivated by the present-day corporate leaders. Including a foreword from Arun Gandhi, Gandhi's grandson, this book offers personal insight into Gandhi's philosophy and the impact it has on business today.
