Mentorship and ROI
We have come to the end of our first chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. We have seen many arguments from Arjun in this chapter about why he doesn’t want to fight.
After all the arguments, Arjun cast aside his bow and arrow, and his mind was in complete distress and overwhelmed with grief.
In our professional life, we face this Problem many times, where we feel of living in a particular organization or a place for some reason. We have many justified arguments with us as Arjun had.
I have seen many freshers living a job in the initial six months because they were not able to adapt themselves, and due to this, they face a lot of problems in their future.
And when we see this Problem from an organizational perspective, it leads to colossal hiring and training costs, and attrition rates directly negatively impact EBITA.
Now let us see the entire situation and try to identify who Arjun was?
Arjun’s celestial father was Indra. In the past life, Arjun was Nar, part of the twin descensions of the Nar-Narayan. A student of Guru Dhronachrya.
How can we do if a person like Arjun can drop his weapon in the war and can’t understand the importance of his duty for future generations?
This is where the importance of a mentor lies. A mentor helps an individual in the most challenging times of his life. He helps us to identify and implement our skills, like the way Shri Krishna helps Arjun.
An organization needs to come up with programs like mentorship in the incoming future to increase employee efficiency.
This will not only help with efficiency but will also help in reducing the attrition rates.
We have completed our first chapter, where we have seen the different problem statements and their justifications. Now from the following chapters, we will see the solutions for each of the Problems.
