International Workshop on
Mastering the Art of Learning : Developing 21st Century Leaders, June 14, 2018
(In Collaboration With PSquare Consulting, USA For Leaders, Managers, Educators)
As a rapidly transforming global economy, India is undergoing accelerated change. Social ideology, cultural norms, educational reform, business, technology, and healthcare, are some expansive domains that require a skillset beyond mere vision and financial acumen. Leaders lead people and when leaders are unable to grow and learn, their leadership becomes futile and can negatively impact the development of those they lead. The purpose of this workshop is to enable the 21st century leader to develop self-efficacy and master the art of learning beyond the classroom.
