The narrative is no longer about ‘Leaders’ but rather about “Leadership.” Leadership should be driven by values and be at once adaptive, pragmatic and culturally well informed. It should not only take organizations, communities and society forward in times of increased interconnectedness and rapid change but also serve as a means of personal self-transformation.
“Education is not the amount of information that you put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. We must have life building, man making, character making, assimilation of ideas.” This quote by Swami Vivekananda encapsulates what education means to us at V-LEAD. Education is about finding purpose and meaning in life.
The fundamental premise of V-LEAD’s development paradigm comes from the principle of building Human and Social Capital. Human Capital is the set of physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capabilities that an individual possesses that affords him or her the agency to lead and sustain their life.
