Management lessons that we can learn from Kapil Sharma’s rise and fall!
Kapil Sharma was a household name until last year. In the era of Smartphones, he was the one who got all the Indian families united once again. Today, he has turned a year older. He became the ice-breaker between people and made conversations among strangers easier, isn’t it? Even after his major downfall, he still rules millions of heart and we would like to wish him a great birthday and loads of success in future. Kapil Sharma is celebrating his 37th Birthday today.
Though from last few days, his destiny is playing tough games with him. He has suffered a major setback in his career after his ugly fight with one of his co-stars Sunil Grover. But did you think he deserves this? Well, God knows but all we can say is that we miss you Kapil! After a long break he is back with his another show on Sony but unfortunately, the show has not gone well with people!
Here are five important management lessons we can learn from Kapil!
- Success is not permanent: Reaching the top might be tough, but keeping to that top spot is even tougher. One thing we have learnt from the fall of The Kapil Sharma Show is that success is not permanent and in order to maintain, you need to keep working hard and not be distracted by personal reasons at least – especially problems. Keeping the success for a long time is actually an art!
- Do not let go of the winning team: It is very difficult to find people who can help you achieve success. If you find good employees, do not let them leave. Yes, the replacements are always there but the chances are they might not be as good in the same roles. Also, it is effective in terms of cost-cutting and time-saving. The Kapil Sharma Show tried to replace Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar and others but it turned out to be a big flop. Keep the best employees with you and be nice to them.

- You won’t go far by insulting a colleague: Very True! For the most part of the show, Kapil cracked jokes on his teammates that were insulting at times. It helped him gain popularity but it is never a good idea in the longer run. You have to show respect towards others for long-term success. Respect, especially mutual respect is necessary. Healthy jokes are always appreciated but insulting someone can lead you to major problems.
- It takes years to build a name but minute to lose it: One wrong move and you can lose everything. It takes years of hard work and efforts to create a brand or business, but you can lose all of that in just one wrong move. Your all hardships will go in a second. So, if you have built a name for the company, make sure you keep it intact.
- Reputation is important: The golden mantra for success: reputation is everything. Once the differences between Kapil and Sunil became public, so many other actors also pointed their finger at the comedian. His reputation as a team man and family guy was shattered in minutes and Kapil was labelled as arrogant and selfish. And that can be one of the most lethal blows to anyone trying to maintain his position at the top.!
