Courses: Science of People
“No man is an island”. Few meaningful goals in life and leadership are achieved without the participation and support of others. IPL-Columbia’s Science of People curriculum focuses on how you can draw out the best in others – your subordinates, boss, clients, colleagues, partners, and even your friends and family – in the pursuit of a common objective.
Science of People builds on the learnings you get from Science of Self on how to master your inner environment. In Science of People, you will learn how to lead others by first attuning yourself to their inner life – their values, motivations, thoughts, beliefs, mindsets and emotions – and then using this attunement to win the support, behavior changes and performance breakthroughs you are seeking from them. This is a powerful new inside-out approach to leadership that draws from Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa’s study of the lives of great leaders and latest breakthroughs in psychology, neuroscience, psychotherapy and organizational studies.
Besides giving you a powerful set of leadership principles, IPL-Columbia's Science of People curriculum will give you a practical toolkit to strengthen your practice of leadership. And through the practice and feedback opportunities you get using our first-of-its-kind Virtual Mentor mobile platform, you will be able to translate your learning into tangible and sustainable improvements in your leadership behaviors.
Leading organizations that have tapped IPL to provide Science of People training to their executives include GE, HPE, SAP, Thomson Reuters, Hitachi, Verizon and Ericsson.
