But he did not just dream ‘BIG’, he also chalked out a strategic plan of action to win the match. He then put it before eyes of those, whose involvement was of importance in the match. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 4: PUT COMMUNITY BEFORE SELF: Bhuvan did not dream for himself, he dreamt for the good of his village folk. Not once did this man of character put his self-interest before that of others. It was this that made him win the support of his villagers… after some initial resistance. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 5: BE DETERMINED IN FACE OF OPPOSITION: Right from the start when the entire village opposes Bhuvan’s having taken up the challenge to the time when the rest of his team refuses to play because he wants to take in an untouchable in the team. We face this situation many times in our organisations. Many a time, we give up and accept what we feel is perhaps a lesser decision. It is at times like these that we need to speak up- as long as we know we are fighting for the right issue, and not against an individual. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 6: GIVE EXAMPLES TO ENHANCE UNDERSTANDING: Bhuvan simplified the challenge of learning cricket by portraying it as something similar to gilli-danda. Analogies have that effect and can be powerful in helping tame the seemingly difficult. As managers and leaders, we too have this task of motivating the team members to take up challenges in the projects. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 7: MAKE A BEGINNING: Bhuvan did not wait to start. He did not see around. He made bat and a ball, got the kid interested and started. Only when we close the door behind us, we will see the doors in front start opening. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 8: SMALL VICTORIES ARE IMPORTANT AT THE START Bhuvan hitting the ball for the first time in full public view and inculcating a feeling of participation among them. When starting any project it is important to have small wins at the start to motivate the team. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 9: BUILDING THE TEAM: Building the team is like recruitment. One needs to select the right people and motivate them. He understands the pressures and the soft points of people, and uses this knowledge to make them part of his team. Each one of his team members is treated as special, as being different. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 10: ALLOCATING ROLES: Bhuvan also assigns responsibilities to each of his people. Just getting the people in the team is not good enough. They have to be told what the goal is. A team consists of different individuals. The objective is to make them all work together like a fist, like a team. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 11: SUPPORT THE TEAM MEMBERS: Bhuvan backs his team members to the hilt, even when they make mistakes. It is indeed important in any team that the captain backs the right person, at the right time, for the right job. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 12: Passion As The Differentiator: Bhuvan and his team members played for the hopes & aspirations of their villagers. It was their passion that made all the difference. As leaders we all have to be careful of what we say and do, for the slightest sign of weakness can get magnified within the team. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 13: Lead From The Front: Never Give Up… that was Bhuvan’s winning mantra. This attitude of his also enabled him to give his best shot even at the last ball and thus win the match. In sport, in business and in life…..always be alert, because you never know when opportunity may knock on your door. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 14: DEFINE THE ENEMY: To the British it was just a game but for Bhuvan it was fight against the British oppressors and a win against them would bring 3 years of ‘TAXFREE’ life for his village folk. For Bhuvan the enemy was defined as bad, oppressors and merciless British overlords. This clear definition helped him to fight towards a specific goal. In any case, having a clearly defined enemy works as a rallying point for the team. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 15: OVERCONFIDENCE DESTROYS: Captain Russel and his team members thought that the match would be a cake walk for them because they were a lot of good experienced. But was here that they committed a mistake, they were overconfident and overlooked the ability of the enemy and this is what made them lose the match. Anyone can take a lesson from here, to never OVERESTIMATE oneself and UNDERESTIMATE others. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 16: TRAIN and PRACTICE: There are no shortcuts for physical and mental fitness. Bhuvan and his team strongly believed it and never compromised on it. There is only one mantra: To be well trained and have good enough practice…. which is HARD WORK! www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 17: CELEBRATE SMALL WINS: Small celebrations help in motivating and encouraging the team. It also helps to lift the spirits of the team members. This well projected by Bhuvan’s team. Ever wondered how many of us actually celebrate small wins in our workplace? www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 18: NEVER GIVE UP: Even the last ball of the match was played with hope. 5 runs to win out of 1 ball, but Bhuvan played it great expectations as though it could win the match for the team and that is exactly what happened. He never gave up on his ability and this is what made him win the match. In sport, in life or in business always be alert and keep giving your best to situations, because you never know when opportunity strikes. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 19: Faith In God: and trust me… it always helps. When everything else seems lost, God shows the way… ofcourse, as long as you are on the right side. The mantra helped Bhuvan... www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 20: Make the best of Limited Resources: Bhuvan made the best out of his limited resources. The tools for the game were all made by the village folk and were made out of the best that they could lay their hands on. As entrepreneurs we too must be innovative. The focus should be on getting the work done and not on the availability of resources. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 21: Take the unexpected in your stride: One after the other all the good batsmen in Bhuvan’s team fell, but he did not lose heart, he played on his best shot and gave the team its victory. Similarly one should not look at defeats on the path as setbacks. One has to learn to take the unexpected in one’s stride and move on. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 22: Its about Team Spirit: No matter how well Bhuvan played in the match, nothing would have been possible if all the team members did not put in their efforts Bhuvan showed how an average team filled with team spirit can overcome a group of talented, experienced but under-motivated individuals. www.schoolofeducators.com Slide 23: Its about People: The film ‘Lagaan’ is all about how ordinary people can do extraordinary deeds. Its about bringing out something from within us. Something which has been hidden and long forgotten. Something whose existence we didn’t know. As we go about our lives, we should remember that each one of us matters, that each one of us has it within us to make a difference. www.schoolofeducators.com You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
