The Integrated Sustainable Leadership Development Program (ISLDP-popularly known as Cohort Training) is our flagship program and has been running since 1992. The world-class training program allows participants to step back, challenge their perceptions and stretch their leadership capability, while helping them to refine their vision of change for them and their organisation.
This one-year long training course divided into 7-day residential learning journeys runs through four National Training Sessions (NTS). It takes participants on locations across India to explore live challenges with real cases and people, deepening their understanding of the complexities of sustainability. Participants selected are referred to as ‘Associates’, graduate to become ‘Fellows’ and part of the LEAD Fellows Network.
