Leadership Skills Development Program (LSDP)


A versatile course has been developed for managers who want to bring their ‘A’ game to work.

Our premier program which will benefit all those professionals who are serving in the public or the corporate sector at various operational, middle or top management levels.

Why you should attend LSDP?

Research conducted in 2017 by the CEB (The Corporate Executive Board – a subsidiary of Gartner and a global best practice insights and technology company – revealed that every year 60% of all the new managers fail within the first 24 months of their new position. In 2014, Steve Smith, in his book ‘Managing for Success: Practical Advice for Managers’, attributed the failure of the managers to one critical factor i.e. they are never properly trained for their job. According to John Eades, the CEO of LearnLoft, training is also indispensable because the reward for being good at job is promotion to a job you haven’t done before and which most often requires a completely different skill set. In every new position, you may start thinking you are a leader, well before you actually are. This program enables the operational, middle and top managers to acquire leadership and management skills suitable to their respective positions so that they are able to give their best performance in their peculiar management roles.
