ICASL, INSEAD launch leadership programme

The ICASL Business School together with INSEAD, launched the groundbreaking four-day long Global Leadership Programme at a ceremony held last week at the Cinnamon Grand, Colombo, in the presence of the country's high-end corporate glitterati and a special delegation from INSEAD.

The launch was a prelude to the sold out four-day programme which commenced on June 15 and concluded on June 18 also at the Cinnamon Grand, Colombo.

The leadership programme will be conducted by the renowned Professor of Leadership and organizational behaviour of INSEAD, Prof Thomas Mannarelli from the faculty of the INSEAD Business School.

The course aimed at high-end professionals and business leaders will see a thought provoking outline of topics covering a wide array of areas, aimed at enhancing the leadership qualities of the country's corporate movers and shakers.

Among the topics that would be covered in the programme are vision and leadership transition, creative thinking outside the box, influence without authority, leading organization change, leading high performance teams, decision making under uncertainty, negotiation dynamics and influencing for change.

The four-day programme received an overwhelming response with organizers having to increase the number of participants by several folds to accommodate the high demand.

Meanwhile, the Business School of ICASL has already commenced intakes for the second ICASL-INSEAD global leadership programme scheduled for September 2011.
