Course Overview

Good leaders don’t just lead. They inspire other leaders.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams

In an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something innovative. The true mark of a leader is the courage to take a bold course of action and see it through. Also, leaders instill in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals. To paraphrase Ralph Waldo Emerson leaders do not follow where the path may lead. Instead, they go where there is no path and leave a trail.

Due to COVID-19, Government has advised against all kinds of public gathering till further notice. For us, safety of our learners is important and hence the programme will be delivered over Direct-to-Device platform i.e. (D2D) where you can access online interactive lectures which will get delivered on your desktop/laptop/mobile. Once the situation improves, the programme shall then be delivered at our designated Centres

Also note that all campus visits shall be conducted once the Government lifts the travel ban and permits the reopening of educational institutes. Candidates will be given appropriate time to plan their travel and itinerary.
