Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management (SAFIM), conducted an experiential workshop titled “Corporate Governance through Consciousness – Self Governing Leadership” for executives, on 25-26 May, 2018 at Sri Aurobindo Bhavan Complex, J P Nagar, Bangalore. National Foundation for Corporate Governance (NFCG), Ministry of Corporate Affairs, was the principal partner for the workshop.
The workshop was attended by senior executives from finance and IT backgrounds.
The program, facilitated by Rupa S, Director, SAFIM and Mezjan Dallas, Senior Associate, SAFIM, began with an unconventional session of introduction which broke the ice and set the theme of the workshop, as well.
The concept of Governance, its importance and the reasons for its failure in the business world were discussed through interactive sessions and group discussions, supported by relevant video clips and case studies. The varied scenarios where human nature plays the main culprit in failing governance were also demonstrated. All participants converged in concluding that external frameworks and regulations are effective only when aberrations in human nature do not etch out loopholes into them.
True governance starts from the self and thus, the integral approach to an awakening of the ‘ethical consciousness’, the crucial steps to self-governance and the role of effective leadership in a ‘conscious’ self-governing community were deliberated in detail.
On the concluding day, the participants were ready with an action plan, to go back and implement the learning of self-governance towards governance, not only in a professional environment, but in every aspect of life.
