A 3-hour experiential workshop (boardroom wisdom) on ‘Rajarshi Leadership’ was conducted for senior executives of PTC Finance Services Ltd. at India Habitat Centre in New Delhi on 1st June 2017. It aims to understand the relevance and the possible means of becoming a Rajarshi Leader through a dynamic self-introspection and a subsequent widening of the self into an immersive oneness with the universe.
The workshop was conducted by Saikat Sen. He facilitate the process of understanding of the concept of Rajarshi which is the ancient Indian concept where leadership became transformative when it harmonized the command and dynamism of an emperor with the detachment and wisdom of a sage. He also explained the journey of a Rajarshi Leader begins with the self, Swarat or self-mastery being the key to true Samrajya or world-governance.
Case analysis of one ancient Rajarshi leader and a contemporary Rajarshi leader helped participants to grasp the true meaning of it.

All participants have given overwhelming feedback about the programme.
