Conscious Leadership at Pondicherry

The habitual tendency of a leader today is to rely more on externals like technology, management techniques, and consultants. Most of the modern management thinking on leadership is about this outer governance or “organizational transformation”. But as the Indian thought repeatedly emphasized self-government, Swarajya is the foundation for governing the outer world, Samrajya. As a result, much of the hidden human potentialities in the intuitive, moral, aesthetic and spiritual realms, which can lead to a higher quality of life as well as a better bottom-line, remain untapped in the corporate world. The main objective of the workshop was to consciously activate these hidden potentialities of consciousness and manifest them in every activity of corporate life.

SAFIM conducted an experiential workshop on “Conscious Leadership” at Society House, Sri Aurobindo Society on 30th January and 6th February 2017 for a group of corporate leaders from France, UK, USA, Switzerland on a discerning tour of Pondicherry, India.


Great opportunity to ask one’s self introspective questions and have thought’s experiences.  Excellent….I found most interesting is creative perspective’s exercise…and the use of media, sitting in silence… -K. D

Very nice and very inspiring program. Good mixture between theory and practice. The key learning is to implement and feet into practice.  I found most interesting is the group dynamics and trust and openness of participants in sharing their own experience with others. - P. A.

Great program. Thoughtful presentations all around. - L. C.

I have been doing a few similar ones in the past and it’s the first time I manages to answer the questions a little easier than in the past. Most interesting is the pace of the program and facilitator allowing us the time to answer those questions to dig deeper into ourselves. - C.

I found most interesting is the zoom out the difficulties. I have to be self-ruler to master the world and to be able to help others. – S.
