The broad objective of the program is to help participants develop themselves, not only as more effective leaders but also as effective team members in the organisational context. The specific objectives are:
• Understanding Self: Understanding one’s interpersonal styles and the strengths and limitations of each style
• Understanding Team Dynamics and Improving Team Effectiveness: How teams develop and work, and how
people act in team situations
• Examining Issues in Leadership: Understanding the challenges before leaders, leadership styles, what works,
and what is less effective
• Deconstructing Leadership: Using a leader’s biography to analyze the various facets of leadership and to draw lessons and learning from such an analysis
Instructors will act more as facilitators in helping participants through the process of learning, using lectures,
discussions, case studies, and experiential exercises. The learning will depend on active participation from
participants, especially in sharing of experiences and learning every day.
