Leadership 4.O for diplomats, govt. officials at IIM-K

Five-day training programme to be funded by Ministry of External Affairs

The Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIM-K) in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs will conduct a special training programme in leadership and management for senior diplomats and government officials from 17 countries under the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme beginning Monday.

The five-day programme, Leadership 4.O: Management and Governance in the emerging world of disruption, scientifically tailored by the expert faculty at IIM-K, is about surviving and thriving in a volatile, uncertain and non-linear world.

Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director, IIM-K, said organisations, including government entities, needed reflection time and dedicated attention towards developing high potential leaders who could navigate and create value in a changing world. The five-day programme will be an exploration in the following four themes that constitute the four disciplines of Leadership 4.0 — Authenticity (closing the gap between you and your own reality), Connectivity (creating resonance), Productivity (the art of undoing), and Possibility (changing mental models).

The programme, fully funded by the Ministry of External Affairs, is aimed at capacity building, skill development, transfer of technology and sharing of experiences with partner countries.

Leadership 4.0 will be attended by over 22 foreign diplomats and civil servants from 17 partner countries — Malaysia, Ethiopia, Zambia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Bhutan, Mauritius, Kenya, Egypt, Oman, Nigeria, Tanzania, Botswana, Gambia, Maldives, Panama and Indonesia.
