The Seth culture
the seth culture as pointed out by a Pakistani national in our class actually refers back to the Pakistani management culture. It refers to the management style of people like Mian Mansha owner of Mansha Group and Sadaruddin Hashwani of the hashoo group. Both leading businessmen and wealthiest people in Pakistan. Their leadership cannot be attributed to a single style. Their style varies with every person they deal with. Mainly autcratic in nature, these people are hugely successful in what they do. Academics may disagree with their practices but their success proves otherwise. Thus giving birth to the term seth culture. Seth in urdu means landlord which are known to be autocratic towards their workforce. Their practices show that leadership is nothing that can be taught in aclassroom.
The origination of this term shows that different circumstances command different leadership styles. This term of a third world country is not know by people in the developed country and therefore assumptions cannot be made. No knowledge is absolute, If you want to negate the way these people operate, first go work in that environment and earn the right to comment.
