Gandhi's Leadership Discussion Questions (Class Discussion)

Sept. 18, 2019 Max Points: 5
Description:

1. Gandhi was a truly remarkable man and one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century. In fact, no less an intellect than Albert Einstein said about him: “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.” Why him, this small, unassuming man? What qualities caused tens of millions to follow him in his mission to liberate India from the British?

2. Consider Gandhi’s response to the other injustices depicted in the film (e.g., his burning of the passes in South Africa that symbolize second-class citizenship, his request that the British leave the country after the Massacre at Amritsar, his call for a general strike—a “day of prayer and fasting”—in response to an unjust law, his refusal to pay bail after an unjust arrest, his fasts to compel the Indian people to change, his call to burn and boycott British-made clothing, his decision to produce salt in defiance of the British monopoly on salt manufacturing). What common thread, if any, do we see in these responses that might be instructive for us as leaders?

3. Comment on the methods Gandhi used to effect change, in particular his disposition to be patient and non-retaliatory in the face of injustice. How, if at all, does that inform your thinking about leading well?
