Professor Saikat Sen, Director, Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management (SAFIM), a unit of Sri Aurobindo Society, conducted a one-day workshop—‘Harvesting Values—for the senior managers of Indian Oil at Indian Oil Institute for Petroleum Management (IIPM), Gurgaon, on December 13, 2013.
There is at present a general agreement among progressive thinkers in business and management that values are the foundation of long-term effectiveness of an organization. However, there is not much systematic thinking on the applied aspects of values, or in other words how to realize these values in the inner being and the outer life of the individual and collectivity. This workshop focused on the application of values and ethics in day-to-day corporate context, based on the insights of an integral yogic psychology.
A total of 31 members of senior management at Indian Oil actively participated in each session. At the end of the day, they were highly motivated and thus formulated their own action plan for future implementation.
Feedback of the Participants:
