BHUVAN FROM MOVIE LAGAAN KABIR KHAN FROM MOVIE CHAK DE INDIA
Don’t Laugh. While it is not often that movies offer more thanentertainment, ever so often there come movies which can make a deepimpact and teach us a few things. Our presentation takes a different pathas we share what we learnt from these movies. It is about Bhuvan andKabir, who, against all odds, fight for pride - and win.
LAGAAN’S BHUVANLagaan is about people. Ordinary, average people, who are going about their lives- like each of us. Who, when the moment demands, do extraordinary deeds. It isabout the power of a Team.This is the story about the resilience shown by the Indians when they were underthe British Rule. When Captain Russell announces that he will double the Lagaan(tax) from all villagers, they decide to oppose it. Leading the villagers is ahandsome young man named Bhuvan, who challenges them to a game of cricket,a game that is to be played by veteran British cricket players, versus villagers,including Bhuvan himself, who have never played this game before.Bhuvan is courageous young man who leads an unskilled team and against allodds reaches the goal. He is an excellent example of a great leader.
CHAKDE INDIA’S KABIR KHANChakDe India’ is not just about sports. It is replete with myriad emotions. And thebest part is that it is very realistic, making it all the more believable. It is a storyof leadership, teamwork and the sweet taste of success.Kabir Khan is newly appointed coach of India’s national women’s hockeyteam. A former captain of the Indian hockey team, now forgotten, it is KabirKhan’s chance to get himself, his country and his team to the winning stand,once again. But this time all he gets is a bunch of girls who do not reallybelieve in playing for the glory, victory and the country. He has a team thatlacks the spirit. Kabir shakes them to wake up the winning spirit. The girlshowever have their own interests. They are more into other things thanplaying hockey. Kabir motivates them to look beyond these ordinary thingsand to play the game for pride, glory and victory. Thus Kabir proves to be agreat leader.
BHUVAN’S LEADERSHIP Think of Problems as Opportunities.When Captain Russel challenges Bhuvan to a cricket match, Bhuvan accepts it becausehe knows that there is really no option. It is a risk, but without taking risks, there are norewards. Dream Big and Define the Goal.Once Bhuvan accepted the challenge, his dream was three years of no tax. It may haveseemed unrealistic or even improbable, but then that’s what dreams are. He not onlydreamt big but also put in place a strategy to make that a reality. Give Examples to Enhance Understanding.Even though Bhuvan didn’t know the difference at that time, he simplified the challengeof learning cricket by portraying it as something similar to gilli-danda. By doing this, hemade the impossible seem achievable, he made the mountain seem climbable.
BHUVAN’S LEADERSHIP Make a BeginningBhuvan did not wait to start. He did not see around. He made a bat and a ball, got thekid interested and started. The first time Bhuvan hits the ball, he does so in public, in fullview of the entire village. He makes it seem easy, he makes them want to participate. Building the TeamBuilding the team is like recruitment. One needs to select the right people and motivatethem. Just watching Bhuvan go from one to eleven offers a lot of learning. Heunderstands the pressures and the soft points of people, and uses this knowledge tomake them part of his team. Bhuvan talks to each of his team members. Each one istreated as special, as being different. Allocating RolesBhuvan also assigns responsibilities to each of his people. Just getting the people onboard is not good enough. They have to be told what the goal is. Just as the handconsists of a thumb and four fingers, a team consists of different individuals. Theobjective is to make them all work together like a fist, like a team.
BHUVAN’S LEADERSHIP Leading from the FrontBhuvan is always there - encouraging, talking, making the decisions. He knows thathaving taken up the challenge, he has to take the fight and be there till the end. Make the Best of Limited ResourcesWe can see how Bhuvan makes the bat and ball with limited resources and later how thepads are made. When Bhuvan and his team are practicing at night - the entire village isgathered around their team with mashaals to create the light. The villagers ofChampaner have limited resources, but they make the best use of them. It’s about Team SpiritHowever good and passionate Bhuvan was, he could not have won the match on hisown. Cricket is a team game. So is business. Individual brilliance means a lot, but asBhuvan showed, an average group filled with team spirit and playing with passion canovercome a group of talented, experienced but under-motivated individuals.
KABIR KHAN’S LEADERSHIP Fair and ImpartialThe way coach Kabir Khan selects the Captain of the team shows that even thoughthere were senior players expecting to be captain, he chose the one who showed thecharacter of a leader. Prioritize the Team GoalSixteen girls from different parts of India were selected to play for the country. One hadcome against her familys wish, other wanted 2 teach a lesson to her boyfriend, etc.. Butno one had any plan for the team they were about to play for. Kabir Khan made themrealize the value and the priority of the team goal and made them compassionate to playfor nothing but the gold. Sometimes, its good to be badThere is a dialogue between Kabir and a senior player in which he says "there has to beonly one goonda in every team and Im the one for this team”. This comment was a replyto that players wrong behavior and was necessary to handle that particular situation.
KABIR KHAN’S LEADERSHIP An eye for the opportunityThe way Kabir Khan gets the job of the coach of team shows that he has a goodunderstanding of the situation. He tells the authority that they don’t have any other optionbut him only. MeritocraticKabir doesnt care where a player hails from. His only criteria of judging a player isperformance. He even denies the senior most player a position in the team. Making impossible the possibleKabir says "Jo ho nahi sakta wohi to karna hai". As winning world cup for Indian womenshockey is like impossible. But Kabir Khan takes it as a challenge and conveys his visionto the team members though he is opposed by many but he is sure what he is doing.
KABIR KHAN’S LEADERSHIP Negative ReinforcementIn the beginning he uses the policy of negative motivation by firing and suspending theplayers who were not giving the desired behavior, than he tries to come close to them toprovide positive motivation and tries to develop acceptance for him. Spelling clarity in choicesChoices that clarify vision, values, expectation and optimize strength, resourcesopportunities and challenge. We can observe that Kabir Khan is having the idea of all thementioned issues. Identify competencies and utilizingIn the movie Bindiya Nayer is the only player who know how to play against one to onemarking tactics thats why Kabir meet him personally and motivate her to come andplay and she does the same.
