Collaborative Leadership Program for Senior & Mid Management in Schools

In November 2016, we launched a major initiative called “Vakshana – Collaborative Leadership”, an intensive certificate course for the top two tiers of management in schools to create a collaborative, compassionate leadership milieu.

This certificate course focuses on the introduction of intuitive management styles explicitly understood, participative goal setting across the organization and collectively chosen self-monitoring mechanisms. Social innovator and IIM-Bangalore start-up incubation mentor Mohan Sundaram is the brain behind the course design, development and delivery, closely aided by Gitanjali Sarangan, Executive Director of Snehadhara Foundation who doubles up as the course facilitator.

The course encompasses detailed interactive sessions on setting ground rules, defining institutional goals, exploring styles of power, types of power, intensive school-specific situational analysis, goal setting, meditative pauses, and intensive one-on-one and group Q&A sessions.

The first edition of the program was delivered at the Kamala Niketan School, Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu on November 21 through November 23, 2016.
