This study examined the organisational climate and managerial effectiveness in various information technology organisations. A sample of 311 participants was surveyed using the MAO-C questionnaire to assess the organisational climate and the PE-G to measure managerial effectiveness. The study focused on three functional climate motives: Achievement, Expert Power, and Extension, and aimed to determine their relationship with managerial effectiveness. The results indicated a positive correlation between functional climate and managerial effectiveness. By integrating ancient Indian principles such as dharma (duty), karma yoga (selfless action), and ahimsa (non-violence) into the organisational culture, leaders can enhance the functional climate, positively impacting managerial effectiveness. Although the specific concept of functional climate may not be directly addressed in ancient Indian verses, the underlying principles offer valuable insights for creating a productive and fulfilling work environment.
