Abstract: Bhagavad-Gita mentioned much about leader qualities and follower qualities. Lord Krishna was explaining to Arjuna about the ideal leader qualities. They include forgiveness, excuse, looking after well being of team members, impartiality, equality among all creatures, and respecting individual. The leader should be above three gunas such as sattva, rajas and tamas gunas. The leader should take decisions under pressure, deal with uncertainty, deal with inconsistency, good listener and a good narrator. He should take initiative, have commitment, and task oriented. This is indicative from Lord Krishna asking Arjuna to commit to the battle till the end. He should not have either affection or personal feelings towards his followers. He should concentrate on the task ahead and the people as a team.

This article describes the trigunas, meaning of satpurusha, and the nature as creator.
