Narendra Modi Success Story

Early Life

Narendra Modi was born on 17th September 1950 to a poor yet humble family of grocers. His childhood was just as tough as lakhs of those children who were born in the post-independence era when India as a nation was still struggling with demons like poverty and unemployment.  Despite dismal conditions, Narendra Bhai helped his father raise his family. He performed meager jobs such as selling tea on railway platforms yet continued going to school. At a very young age, he understood the importance of learning, education, and being independent.

The lesson for Management Students

  1. Never stop learning.
  2. Learn, Unlearn and Re-Learn
  3. Keep expanding your skill-set.

Joining the RSS

Narendra Modi came in contact with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at a very young age. Narendra Bhai learned focus, discipline, and dedication while being an active member of RSS. He left his home shortly after completing his school education and later in some interviews confirmed that he appeared for college and university level exams via correspondence. He met many influential people and emerging leaders while being a member of RSS such as Lakshmanrao Inamdar, Vasant Gajendragadkar, Nathalal Jaghda. He kept strengthening his ties and was mentored by many of them.

Lessons for Management Students

  2. Work with your peers and learn from your seniors
  3. Follow your passion, but keep adding new skills

Joining the BJP

Narendra Modi set foot into politics by joining the Gujrat wing of the Bhartiya Janta Party, an emerging party in the 1980s with a staunch Hindu ideology. It was one of the few parties that stood against the Indira regime who had enforced the Emergency in India. He primarily worked as an Innovative Field Officer and dedicatedly established the party’s foothold in his home state, Gujrat. He was known for his innovative organizational methods which catered to both – the growth of the party and well-being of the individuals. He is known to have designed and implemented many programs in his political party such as the 1000 Community level Group Meetings and efforts to involve women members.

Lessons for Management Students

  1. Always be a team player
  2. Bring the team together and work for the greater good (profit) of the community (organization/team)
  3. Always think ‘out of the box’ and be innovative
  4. Add a human/emotional element to your task

As Chief Minister of Gujrat

Narendra Modi is the longest serving Chief Minister of Gujarat and was re-elected four times. He is known to change the face of Gujrat, making it one of the most secure states to live and technologically robust. He started many initiatives and implemented schemes and programs during his almost 14-year tenure as a CM in Gujrat. With the IT booming, Narendra Modi made the best of it and digitalized his state and made it self-sufficient. He is also known to have pro-development policies that helped micro, small and medium scale industries flourish in Gujrat.

Lessons for Management Students

  1. Promote inclusiveness
  2. Keep upgrading yourself technically
  3. Think about every member of your team
  4. Take risks and keep progressing ahead

As Two-Time Prime Minister of India

Narendra Modi started as a chaiwala and paved his way to the Prime Minister’s Karyaalaya, not once but twice with a thumping majority. In 2014 he invited leaders of SAARC nations as special guests for the swearing-in ceremony, and in 2019 he has invited BIMSTEC leaders. If we look at the NAMO 1.0 cabinet, it was a carefully chosen one where the ministries were allotted on the merit and record of his ministers. By selecting MPs like Smriti Irani, he also showed his openness to young talent and instilled confidence in them. Even during the 2019 elections, he and his party chose a young 28-year old candidate (Tejasvi Surya) who ultimately ended up winning in his constituency. The NAMO 1.0 is known to implement schemes (Ujwala), policies (GST), and programs (Make In India, Skill India) that have helped boost the economy and bridge the rich – middle class – poor income gap. He has been criticized for some of his policies and decisions, but he has taken them with a pinch of salt and continued to work for the betterment of the country.

Lessons for Management Students

  1. Keep your ties secure with your allies and non-allies
  2. Be a visionary and inclusive leader
  3. Think of both short-term and long-term goals as a leader (or manager)
  4. Be trustworthy and trust your team
  5. Divide and delegate the work keeping in mind a team member’s caliber, credentials, and commitment
