Discover the leader in you
The pace of change in organizations has increased manifold in recent times. Improvement in process, structure and system are often being attempted with an objective of achieving better efficiency and effectiveness. However, it is known that most change initiatives fail to achieve their desired objectives. One of the reasons for the failure is lack of appropriate skills among managers driving the change. While training their managers, organizations usually consider leadership development and developing skills for managing change as separate challenges. Although most organizations train for leadership development, the training for managing change is not given due importance. Also, most of these trainings are focused on senior managers than the middle management. We strongly believe that if change programs are to succeed, there should be ‘able’ managers at each level with the know-how of leadership and change management concepts, tools and techniques. Hence, leadership development and change management training should ideally go hand-in-hand if organizations want to be more effective. Trained managers also have a better chance of career advancement as they are more successful than others in handling managerial tasks and in managing a change.

The course intends to be participative with a lot of reflections/assessments into one’s own style of leadership and change management, thus, providing opportunities to identify specific areas of improvement.
