Course description

Developing a Leadership Mindset

Various leadership theories have emerged over time. We can categorize those theories in groups as per their approach to leadership as Trait theory, Behavioural theories, Contingency theories, Modern theories. These theories help us in understanding the leadership concepts. Organizations are spending millions on leadership development. World is full of MBA schools which produce more than a million MBAs every year.

Still, the biggest challenge being faced by organizations today is dearth of effective leaders. Organizations spend a lot on various leadership development programmes. These programmes do not have similar impact on all the individuals who attend the programmes. Everyone attends the same lectures, goes through same simulations,

exercises, psychometric instruments etc., yet these same inputs are processed in a different manner by each individual and a different output is seen in each case. To make leadership development programmes more effective, we need to know what is the hidden factor that affects the processing of input.

How leaders think, learn, and behave are driven by their mindsets. The mindset differences are consistent and can be documented. The course will make leaders question if they have the mindset necessary to pursue and achieve goals. This course is about leaders discovering how mindset can be developed for success in all spheres of life.
