Globally, business is a huge engine of economic development and a major source of employment and prosperity. However, this development of just a century has come at a high cost to humanity in the form of consumerism stressing the environment, skewed work-life balance, broken families, alarming stress levels causing a host of illnesses hitherto unknown, and in general lopsided growth fueling social unrest and crime. Humanity needs to find a more sustainable approach to development that fosters not only prosperity but also harmony, inclusion and a fulfilling life for all.
Business leaders have a responsible role to play to make this happen as they are the inspiring role models of success for the youth. India has been the enterprise capital of the world for several millenia until a couple of centuries ago. What made India sustain success over such a long span of time? Even to this day, the bulk of the Indian population thrives on self-driven enterprise. There are businesses of all sizes that are thriving for generations.
• Are there models of leadership, organizational structure and culture that are unique to Indian psyche and distinct from prevailing models?
• Do those models apply to today’s corporate management?
• Are there successful, live examples to study?
• What can Indian business models contribute to the world?
