A collection of teaching from Bhagavad Gita for administrators, managers and bosses. Anger gives rise to delusion. Delusion corrupts the mind, and a corrupt mind destroy the power to reason properly. Defeat is imminent when the power of reasoning is lost. You have the right over your responsibilities, and the proper actions required for it, but you don’t have the right to the rewards resulting out of it. You should never engage in an action only for the desire of the rewards, and you should not desire inaction. The righteous one who accepts and shares the reward of his actions is freed from sins, while he who works for self interests incur sin. Work for the common good without selfish interests; the rewards of selfless work will take you to the supreme state. People follow the noble ones. People follow the standards created by them.
