Entrepreneurs play a significant role in most economies. This role is even more critical in a developing economy like India. India is a culturally diverse, democratic, and economically ascendant nation. Academicians and business experts agree that India stands at the crossroads of becoming a ten trillion-dollar economy (PWC, 2014). For decades innovation has been a buzzword in Indian corporations that promises much but delivers very little (Irani, 2019). The need seems to be for a contextualized model that acknowledges cultural imperatives, that may aid intrapreneurial middle managers in India to innovate.
The purpose of the contemplated research is to examine how Gandhian principles can shape the business practices of tea corporations for greater impact on the lives and working conditions of tea plantation workers in India. Gandhian principles allow organizations to develop business processes that are based on mindful consumption, sustainable utilization of natural resources, sustainable livelihoods, and equitable distribution of wealth; thereby, directing business leaders to pursue a corporate social responsibility strategy of not only doing good, but also of being good (Diwan, 1982). Gandhian values have the potential to influence businesses to achieve profitability, sustainability, and inclusivity by considering the interactions between individuals, organizations, and the community.

This article describes the changing parameters of professional conduct in digital environments and proposes a set of considerations and recommendations for health leaders to navigate this new frontier.
