The “National Leadership Engine” (NLE) is a project by the NPCC in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sports and Recreation that aims at developing a leadership pipeline to achieve higher productivity and better living for the nation. Empowering youth to be the agents of change at community level will strengthen socio-economic well-being at national level.
Experiences around the world have demonstrated that rapid, inclusive, sustainable socio-economic development is achieved by strong leadership. Strong leadership and management is a key factor in fostering innovation, unlocking the potential of the workforce and ensuring organisations have the right strategies to drive productivity and growth.
However, it is also a fact that the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) inherent in today’s landscape is the “new normal” and it is profoundly changing how leaders lead. The skills and abilities leaders once needed to help their organizations and communities thrive are no longer sufficient. The need to develop leaders who can counter volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity with vision, empathy, understanding, clarity, and agility is critical.
