IIM Kozhikode MDP Programs Introduction Session


A Programme for Young – Leaders in the Making, Effective leadership ‘rests on reason ’ and ‘moves on passion .’ Passion dares the leader to creatively visualize things that appear impossible to others as well as energizes her / him to pursue action to realize those dreams. Reason enables the leader to give structure and stability to the process of pursuing the dreams as well as to the dreams already achieved. This programme focuses on becoming and being an effective leader, and enabling others to become and be effective leaders. Keeping this spirit, the programme aims to take the participants through a voyage of reflective discovery of their self and leadership potential and active learning to develop their leadership styles.

Appreciate and gain a deeper understanding of :

  • Fundamental human processes in organizations such as communication, power-politics-influence, conflict resolution, etc., and
  • Concepts like vision, mission, idealism, values, beliefs, rituals, symbols, dreams, etc.

Programmes on Leadership can be suitably designed for people at any level of the organizational hierarchy. Here, I am pitching this programme specifically for youngsters ( upper age limit: 35 years ), preferably with 5 to 10 years of organizational work experience. My clear intention of this positioning is to invigorate them for a life-long pursuit of leadership early on in life. The participants could be from the for-profit or not for profit organizations, government, family businesses, entrepreneurial ventures, political parties, activist groups, and so on. The only condition is: they need to be young – at heart and in mind , and with an open mind for exploration and experiencing.
