Leadership Development

 concept: Every project is a story of pioneering vision, excellence and sustainability. It takes powerful leaders to lead a deep transformation into India’s growth and in so many vast areas for the past decades. To keep this influential legacy thrive, IL&FS believes it’s time to invest in the future leaders of the organization. The focus is on the mid-level managers being selected and groomed for senior management positions. If you looking to have a different kind of training to its future leaders. A journey that entails inner wisdom, challenging activity and connection to history and nature. We in “Natural Leadership Center”, a global and experienced leadership training organization, are excited to offer this unique proposal to hopefully partner and create a long-lasting impact and influence on the IL&FS system. Organizational needs Developing a strong leadership presence for the mid-level management to become tomorrows trusted leaders Identifying and mapping the development areas of each manager Creating strong resilience to failure without dismissing its importance to the growth of a leader Recovering from failures and coping with its impact powerfully while moving forward. Adjusting to the dynamic and changing reality of a big organization while practicing inner-stability in times of uncertainty. Developing a strategy that is clear, powerful and engaging. A strategy that is inspired by a vision and is translated to a practical plan with definite goals and objectives. Team leading capabilities: Delegation, Feedback, performance Learning how to set and achieve clear and definite goals to self and team Growing team members performance by learning how to give an effective feedback, setting targets and monitor their achievements.  Our approach for the leadership program In “Natural Leadership Center” we know that to have successful results we need to explore and work on two main aspects of our leaders: Who are they Being  What are they Doing. We use the metaphor of a Seesaw to explain that:  Being: The inner operation system that is working in everyone, where we hold our belief system, values, dreams, desires. This inner operation system also holds the fears, failures and the blocking inner-voices. All of which are creating a personality and an individual state of mind. Doing: The choice of behavior, words and communication style and the choice of actions that represents our Being. When we behave in a certain way we are choosing to manifest our Being. Both parts are important to become and act as leaders. Much like a Seesaw, we need to balance both parts, so we can adjust in the world of leaders while learning how to recover when we fall. Our proposal has been designed to thoroughly answer both. Being                                                                                                   Doing

Recommended structure: We want to give the top/middle management an experience that will challenge their Doing and encourage a new way of Being. Consequently, the experience will hone their leadership awareness and capabilities. The program will be assembled from 3-4 stages:  Stage 1-  Building strong foundation to the program Pre-work assessment, evaluation and finalizing and refining the program components. It will include conversation with parties involved to make sure the design is answering the needs of the organization.  Stage 2- The 3 leadership dimensions, 4 days in Rajasthan  In an experiential learning style, we will train the leaders on 3 leadership dimensions: Leadership from within, Leadership from other and leadership from the system. Every dimension is having a different impact on the leadership skills and capabilities. The 4 days will be made from modules building on each other. The pace of the training is high and energetic thanks to our training sequence:
