Leadership Development Programs

Leadership Development

At our simulation-based programs, your business leaders get to
– Develop a holistic, enterprise-wide perspective
– Experience running a business to realize their own gaps
– Learn, apply and verify specific, actionable solutions

We call it ‘Leadership Through Experience’. At our programs, your senior managers get to actually run a company, take critical decisions as a team – and compete with other teams in a volatile environment. They get to make their mistakes in a risk-free, learning-focused setup, and acquire tools and frameworks that help them on their developmental journey.

We have worked with over 2000 VPs, AVPs and GMs – to bridge their potential with actual, on-the-ground performance. Our programs fall into three primary focus areas:

Programs for high-potentials

Our customizable high-potentials leadership program targets your most promising managers. They get an opportunity to experience the formidable challenges they will face when they move up to increasingly complex leadership roles in the future.

Running an organization in a complex and highly competitive virtual environment gives your high potentials a holistic understanding of business. Your managers will return with tangible, specific action plans and new ideas, ready to take charge of critical roles and drive business performance.

Succession planning

Finding a leader (for your company, department or business unit) is hard – you need to find senior leaders with perspective, acumen and multiple competencies, including:

  1. Fully conversant with every aspect of the company/unit itself (the ‘inside’ view)
  2. Expert at interpreting and predicting customer sentiment, competitor movement, and market adjustments (the ‘outside’ view)
  3. Both expertise and confidence in their new duties (which is usually a product of repeated, and eventful, experience)

Our customizable succession-planning and pre-promotion programs help your managers step up and take responsibilities, learn relevant tools and gain confidence in a team-based, competitive, and result-oriented business environment.

Programs for business & financial acumen

Our customers realize that at least some of their senior managers, are not actually business managers. They are engineers, supervisors, accountants, scientists, etc., who have come up the ladder based on performance in their functions (departments). Even for MBAs, what they learnt at business school is often a distant memory when they reach GM/VP level positions (usually many years after their education).

Our business & financial acumen programs serve as a bridge (for those who do not have formal business education) or refresher (for those who do). In addition to an upgrade to the ‘business mind-set’, these programs deliver practical, ready-to-use tools that they themselves can try out, validate and adopt.
