A new course on Leadership for Development in Fragile Settings is taking place in New Delhi this week.
High quality leadership is the key to leading transformation. In any setting, strong leadership is a challenge. Leadership development is not just a matter of tools and models, but a commitment for growth and change from within that achieves transformation of teams, organisations and institutions and ultimately countries.
This one week programme is designed to provide an understanding of contemporary and classic leadership models and how to put them into action. It is the foundation of a personal commitment to change and transformation in challenging and fragile settings.
The course follows the framework of the “Situational Leadership model” developed by Tannenbaum & Schmidt and tailored for fragile settings. The key is the combination of personal commitment and clarity with tools and practical approaches in applying the learning.
The programme is designed to be dynamic and challenging as well as enjoyable, with the end goal to contribute to the quality of leadership by providing opportunities for leaders and emerging leaders to develop and grow.
The course will run from 25 to 29 June and will become part of the tailor-made portfolio of the Fragile States Desk at the ITCILO. The teaching methods used include short lectures and taught sessions, small group work, case studies, role plays, presentations and individual reflections.
By the end of the workshop participants will have
- Established insights into what constitutes effective leadership
- Identified their personal leadership models
- Reflected on how to inspire and motivate others
- Practised a range of influencing styles
- Developed their leadership development pathway.
