Real life corporate lessons from Bahubali2 (The Conclusion)
Bahubali- the biggest hits of all time for Indian cinema. Movie was liked all over world with the best direction/screenplay/effects/animations etc. Acting from all the actors was phenomenal. Lots of people have taken management/corporate lessons from the movie in their own way, which is awesome.
Don’t even remember how many times I have watched the movie. With some thoughts already in my mind, I was watching this movie & I started linking the movie to our corporate life. Many will agree and many will disagree.
Never believe anyone in corporate world. Simply never make friends at work, keep pure professional relationship while in office (this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make office colleagues friends, just keep that purely non-official). Bahubali was blindly trusting Shivgami Devi & Bhallaladeva, result we all know. This can happen to you if you are trusting your colleagues blindly. You will be left behind.
Bahubali, being very sincere and loyal to his country, never ever demanded for position of king or any other position. Result was, he was sidelined by politics. Can you relate this at your work place (may be)? You always thought, you worked so hard but growth was given to someone else. So don’t be Bahubali, be smart in real life (we all are not Bahubali 😉)
With the manager role, Shivgami Devi was doing very good initially by managing her team, but with the politics and tricks played by Bhallaladeva & his father, she falls into the tricks and ultimately ordered to kill Bahubali. It was all her ego, which killed Bahubali(our loyal employee ☹). Managers being egoistic results in only one thing- that is poor results. When a team lead acts as manager instead of leader, it will cause destruction and only destruction, which happened in Mahishmati & within our corporates.
When Shivgami Devi realized the mistake, she has committed and her kingdom was already devastated, she did one good thing by saving Bahubali’s son. It is never late to realize your mistake. When you figure out, what wrong you have done, try to fix that instead of living with ego. Ultimately, that resulted in finishing off the culprits and your team will again flourish.
Don’t be like Katappa also. you will kill the skills in you. You are loyal, brave, sincere & will remain at the same position if you don’t stand for yourself. Remember you are not slave(As was Katappa in Bahubali). Unless you stand for yourself, you will continue to be as you are.
Role of Devasena, she was very brave. But her character just resembles to the roles of some people within our corporates who have lot of suggestions, but no one listens to them.
Bijjaladeva(Bhallaladeva’s father) was the person who always defines the strategies. Those people are not in power but always make an impact in decision making (in this case, a bad one).
So if want to grow and you are hard working, just don’t take everything silently, as we don’t have any shapath (Oath) binding, like Bahubali Movie. This is real world with too much of competition.
Work hard but be smart 😊
