Leadership Principles from Bhagavad Gita

Bhagavad gita is the holy scripture given by Shree Krishna to Arjuna more than 5000 years ago in kurukshestra, India. It is the most incredible scripture in the history of humanity that educates mankind. Bhagavad gita consists of 18 chapters and 700 verses. Many people believe that Bhagavad Gita is all about religion, spirituality and philosophy. But for me it is the global university where we can learn about mind, management, entrepreneurship and leadership principles. If we look closely, the great gita contains many verses related to leadership lessons similar to contemporary leadership principles. Here I have extracted some valuable leadership lessons from Bhagavad Gita which is helpful for all human beings.
