3 Day Management Development Programme on Leadership for Creative Excellence

Dr. Koustab Ghosh

Programme Coverage: 

The realities of today’s business environment marked by globalization, fierce competition, change, technological complexity and diversity make it extremely challenging to lead organizations. Leadership for creative excellence lies in understanding the significance of interdependence that exists between an organization and its dynamic socio-economic environment and formulating strategies to manage expectations of key stakeholders besides maintaining a competitive advantage. It also helps participants develop leadership which is socially, environmentally and culturally responsible.

The  competitive  edge  of  this  program  is  in  its  unique  design,  incorporating  the  best leadership theories and practices from all parts and of the world, with special emphasis on Indian context. This programme addresses the topic of effective leadership from a multidisciplinary   perspective   and   provides   an   alternative   approach   to   understanding leadership besides enabling participants to gain better insights and develop an intuitive understanding of evolving perspectives, worldviews, visions and purposes, needed to explore creative   leadership.   The   purpose   here   is   to   provide   an   integrative   framework   for understanding creative leadership development. The focus is on helping participants on a path of self-discovery in the area of leadership and providing practical tools that can make them more competent,  articulate,  creative,  inspirational,  and credible in winning  the hearts and minds of their followers.

Programme Objectives

This programme would attempt to influence and stimulate the minds of the participants to think out-of-box solutions and developing a likelihood of exploring the less trodden path. The broad and wide open outlook to the existing business problems and workplace issues would enable the participants to come up with innovative solutions that can further be transmuted among people down the line of hierarchy.

Pedagogy  is  an  interactive  mix  of  case  studies  of  benchmark  organizations,  experience sharing, lectures, discussions, and group presentations, reflections on industrial experiments and real-life situations, screening of videos and interactive sessions with practising CEOs. It also  includes  extensive  competency  tests  for  the  participants,  to  assess  their  creative personality dimensions, which help them identify strengths and weaknesses. A subsequent counselling session helps them address weaknesses. The entire approach is integrative and interdisciplinary. Most of the inputs are drawn from highly successful companies as well as classical and contemporary writings on the subject.
