Course programme

It's a war out there. A successful manager must out-think her counterpart.This makes the understanding of the underlying motivations and driving attitudes indispensable. The rules of the game are changing every moment of the day. Age old organisational set-ups are making way for the smarter and leaner structures.The smart manager thus can either be a structural designer or a "virtual" outcast.

The course aims at understanding and appreciating the inspiration, elation, dilemmas, disappointments etc. of becoming and being a leader, and enabling others to become and be leaders. The course draws its resources from great works of literature and classic pieces in humanities. The objectives of the course include:

-To develop further the understanding of concepts like vision, idealism, heroism, values, beliefs, ambition, virtue, myths, rituals etc. and build sensitivity to the related experiences associated with them in leadership contexts
-To apply this understanding to make better sense of modern organisational functioning
-To encourage appreciation of humanities and literature as a rich source of experience, meaning and wisdom relevant to enriching ones personal, familial, societal and organisational life
