              Essence of Ramayana
“O’ Friend, behold my chariot through which I am always decidedly
  victorious. Courage and tenacity are its wheels, immutable truth and
  character are its flags. Strength, discrimination, self control and charity
  are its horses. Forgiveness, mercy and equanimity are the reins and
  devotion to the Lord its charioteer. O’ Friend, whoever possesses such a
  chariot can never be defeated”.

  Key Learning's From The Scriptures
• Transformational leaders are change agents:
  They strive to bring the desired changes to improve the organization,
  society and country. Sri Rama changed the kingship of Lanka when
  Vibheeshana was crowned as the king of Lanka even before his (Sri Rama)
  war with Ravana took place.

• Transformational leaders are courageous people:
   Once they take a stand, they are brave to take risks, ensure vision and
  goals are achieved No one including his guru Vasistha Muni, Bharata and
  all the people of Ayodhya could persuade Sri Rama to return to rule
  Ayodhya. Sri Rama was firm and brave to take all the risk to protect the
  words of his father (King Dasaratha)

• Transformational leaders believe in people:
   They have a very positive approach towards all people. They believe in
  the innate ability and motivation of the people and empower them. Sri
  Rama had complete trust and believes in Sugriva to recover Sita.
• Transformational leaders are life long learners:
   They view mistakes not as failures but as learning experiences.
  They have an amazing appetite for continuous self learning and
  development. In the life of Sri Rama, we see a perfect example of
  life of learner.

• Transformational leaders have the ability to deal with
  complexity, ambiguity and uncertainty:
   They have all the requirements of an increasingly complex world
   demand complex problem solving ability on the part of the leaders.
  Sri Rama clearly exhibits this ability when he had to make the
  painful decision to banish Sita from Ayodhya.

• They have broad and inspiring visions:
   The visions are translated into missions and goals. Sri Rama
  created future vision for Ayodhya and the vision was clearly
  communicated to the people of Ayodhya before leaving to the forest.
