A leader not only grows within a culture but also carries a culture within himself, he said.

Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director General, International Management Institute (IMI) Delhi, hosted Leadership Clinic, a day-long workshop for industry leaders on addressing 99% of untapped potential of leadership, on September 8, 2017.

Prof. Chatterjee based the session on two decades of empirical research and experiential understanding oftransformational leadership in all six continents of the world.

This workshop focused on the inner-life of the leader and particularly on the mental model they use to deal with situations in their work lives, the deep-rooted cultural and spiritual values of India that are increasingly relevant in modern workplaces.

The Clinic was attended by industry leaders from corporates ranging from Maruti Suzuki, IndiGo, Indian Oil Corporation, State Bank of India (SBI), Neyveli Lignite Corporation, Firstsource, RP Sanjiv Goenka Group, and CESC amongst others.

During the session, Prof. Chatterjee emphasized on one of the most prominent leadership quality and said, “A leader not only grows within a culture but also carries a culture within himself.  When you practice using them and become proficient enough that they will become second nature that is when you will find that the transformation has already occurred”.

He elaborated on the five dimensions of leadership – Darshan, Swadhyay, Sahayog, Stithapragnya and Purnatwa.

Eminent editor Mr. Prabhu Chawla joined the session as a keynote speaker.  He laid emphasis on the capability of listening for a leader as one of the important skill-set of management.  He further shared his experience as an editor spanning over two decades and shared the mantras of his success.

The participants left inspired and learnt how to inspire others so they achieve more than they ever thought they could.  The session equipped them with a powerful and proven set of tools and detailed instruction on their use.
