Adventure and action are critical to a leader. Leaders venture into unknown territories in different dimensions – physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. As such, living up to its belief of ‘Leaders are created under extreme challenge and chaos’, Indus School of Leadership initiated a unique way to leadership training – Leadership through Mountaineering: ‘Peak to Lead’. Through this radical method of training, wherein mountaineering expeditions are conducted for students to world’s challenging peaks, the best among the students emerge and they develop the highest level of self-awareness and self-concept. The students develop essential leadership skills viz. goa-setting & planning, collaboration, risk-taking, endurance, open-mindedness and others, through real-life experiences with real problems and challenges.
The journey so far.
