Next Generation Leaders Development
The Institute recognizes that too little attention has been given to leadership development and leadership transition in local non-governmental and other civil society organizations. In response, Samdhana runs a leadership program aimed at assisting NGO and other civil society leaders to reflect upon their experiences and strengthen their leadership skills. This program encourages participants to be proactive in mentoring their own staff and in facilitating smooth leadership transitions. Peer learning, systems thinking, reflection and mentoring approaches are used. Samdhana Fellows assist in leadership training and often become longer-term mentors to local actors/leaders.
