Transformational Leadership Self-awareness- The first step is conducted using an innovative, evidence and protocol-based advisory approach. A series of integrated psychometric tests are used to identify transformational leadership capacities of the student. Traits and behaviors at the individual, interpersonal and transformational leadership level are analyzed and then integrated to generate four razor sharp, customized and individual specific insights – strengths, the key driver, synergy generators and synergy denuders. A gap analysis, therefore, reveals what the student needs to do to be a good transformational leader and what he/she is at the moment. For example, the student may not be open-minded enough and needs to develop that quality.
Specially trained faculty called Faculty Advisors and second year students called Associate Advisors integrate these results anchoring on the multi-dimensional leadership questionnaire (MLQ). Based on the MLQ, an individual leadership report (ILR) is generated which becomes the basis of a one-on-one friendly advisory with the student. This one-hour session with a trained faculty is used to discuss, identify and talk about the gaps in leadership competencies that have been generated through psychometric tests and collaborated with the faculty’s own experience.
Administered to about 450 students, the first step takes about a month necessitating stringent recording and quality control.
