Dimensions of Leadership


Interdisciplinary – General Management


Leadership dimensions are once again at the forefront of discussion and debate in management fora. This has been due to the fast paced changes taking place in the business environment and the need for building organisations that can sustain these challenges. There is a recognition that managers have to emerge as leaders in their own domain for responding to these challenges. This is a sector agnostic programme and is equally applicable to different organisations be they from corporate sector, public sector, government or not-for-profit category institutions

The objectives of this MDP are :

To have insights into conceptual dimensions of leadership
To understand day-to-day leadership skills required in organisations
To develop a perspective of functional area leadership
To understand issues in formulating leadership responses
To introduce the Concepts of Moral, Conscious and Resonant Leadership
To gain insights into the interface between leadership and society
