About Our Approach

The 21st century is characterized by increasing uncertainty, chaos, knowledge, obsolescence, and alienation of the individual from his/her self. It is, therefore, no surprise that most organizations, as well as institutions of the state, are facing a leadership crisis.

We believe that the leadership journey has to start with the individual; beginning with self-awareness and a positive attitude. The leadership credo is simple: lead yourself first, then others. Consequently, there is a greater emphasis on:

  • The quest for a higher purpose and giving meaning to life
  • Experiential learning through reflection, balanced work-life relations, and shifting the responsibility for learning from the organization to the individual
  • Setting long-term vision and goals
  • Creativity and the ability to live with adversities

This will help in arriving at the potential triangle members of the organization and plan for them. It gives an input to the leadership pipeline for the organization.
