Karma-Yoga Second Annual Convention to be held on 24th August, 2013

An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory” said Ralph Waldo Emerson once and that’s what Great Lakes is trying to achieve through this Annual Convention. The Convention is an all-inclusive platform that brings together farmers, businessmen, self-help groups, non-governmental organizations, students, local Panchayat leaders and every other stake-holder relevant in the rural development schema together under one roof.

Great Lakes Institute of Management would be conducting its Second Annual Karma-Yoga Convention on 24th August, 2013.


About Karma-Yoga

    Karma-Yoga, Great Lakes’ Leadership Experiential Project (LEP) was developed in sync with the school’s mission of holistic development: inculcating passion with compassion, ability with humility, mobility with nobility, and success with integrity. The project, guided by Dr. Venkat R. Krishnan (Director, Yale-Great Lakes Center for Management Research) is a unique medium for students to connect with ground realities and experientially learn transformational-leadership.

    The LEP creates a mutual win-win situation for both the students and the twenty villages that have been adopted by Great Lakes. While the villages get budding managers to enable the villagers to lift themselves unto their better selves, the students acquire a first-hand understanding of what it means to create followers and transform them.
