Management Lessons from the life of Lord Hanuman!

Introduction

In this article, we will discuss the management and life lessons from Lord Hanuman. 


Lord Hanuman was the devotee of Lord Rama. He had Rama and Sita always in his heart. 

  • What is in your heart? 
  • What you are looking for in your life?




Lord Hanuman only sees Lord Rama. So, it was easy for Hanuman to absorb and execute the instructions given by Lord Rama.


Everyone has the idea but they lack execution.

Ideation without execution leads to delusion.


Example of Lessons from the Life of Lord Hanuman 

We can learn various lessons from the life of Lord Hanuman. 


Let us take one example from his life.


In Lanka, when Laxman was unconscious during the war between Rama and Ravana. Rama asked Hanuman, “Can you bring the Sanjeevani Booti to save the life of Laxman?” 


Hanuman could have said, “Lord, I have applied for two days leave. I will not be able to go. It is very difficult to work. You can give me some easy job.” But, he has not said that. 


There are two things – Initiative and Finitiative. 


Lots of people can take initiative but finitiative is taken by only those who can take responsibility.


Responsibility is one thing that is never given, it is always taken.


In odd circumstances, your boss will only search for the employee who is more responsible and reliable. 


Lord Hanuman is a live example of accountability, ownership, initiative, and responsibility. 


Lord Hanuman could have said that Sanjeevani Booti is far away and it is not in my Key Responsibility Areas (KRA) and Key Accountability Areas (KAA). But, he has not said this. 


He went to the Himalayas with very high speed to bring Sanjeevani Booti. 


When he reached the Himalayas, he was not able to identify the Sanjeevani Booti. 


He could have come back and said to Lord Rama, “Lord, you have not provided the sample specification. If you have shown me the sample, then I would be able to bring it. I was not able to find it.” 


And Lord Rama would have accepted the Hanuman’s reply because he actually not has the sample. 


But, Lord Hanuman brought the whole mountain with him to Lanka and said, “Please check and find the Sanjeevani Booti. I was not able to identify it. You have to spend 2 extra minutes in it.” 


So, Lord Hanuman could have said no or he could have stopped at someplace. But, he did it.
