Background: In the dynamic and demanding field of management, the development of a well-rounded personality is essential for effective leadership, conflict resolution, and self-awareness, ultimately contributing to career success. Yoga, with its ancient roots in fostering holistic development, holds promise as a tool for enhancing the personality traits of managers.Objective: This study aims to evaluate the impact of an Evidence-Based Yoga Module (EBYM) on the personality traits (Guna) of managers, focusing on the dimensions of Tamas, Rajas, and Sattva.Materials and Methods: A cohort of 72 managers, representing a mean age of 48.75±3.86 years, drawn from Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, participated in a single-group pre- post study. The Personality Inventory (PI) data was collected both before (pre) and after (post) a five-day EBYM.Statistical Analysis: The data analysis employed means, standard deviations, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, and the Wilcoxon signed-rank test, facilitated by SPSS 16.Conclusion: This study underscores the potential of EBYM as a catalyst for enhancing the Sattva Guna, signifying balanced personality development, among managers. These findings imply that the integration of yoga practices can contribute significantly to enhancing managerial performance within an organization.
