Jindal Institute of Leadership Development and Executive Education (JILDEE) started the 2018-19 training year with one programme in April and four programmes in the month of May. Two programmes on “Women Empowerment” were conducted for all-India female employees of the Power Grid Corporation of India. The programmes were in Shimla and Jim Corbett National Park from 5-7 April and 3-5 May 2018 respectively.
In addition, JILDEE conducted a 7-day programme on “International Relations”; 3-day programme on “English Writing and Reading Skill”; and 2-day programme on “Organization Psychology and Emotional Intelligence” for Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) officers and Telangana State Service officers in the month of May. Both the programmes were residential with a pedagogy of Case Studies, Interactive Learning and Outbound activities.
The training year ended with JILDEE once again making its mark in the domain of executive education by conducting over 30 programmes for various government organisations and public sector units. The programmes were a mix of residential programmes both on and off campus, including a programme in Singapore and other outbound programmes.
More than 200 officers of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) including a batch of 20 monks and nuns were trained in leadership, management and communication skills. The 2-week module on Leadership, Management and Communication Skills was designed in collaboration with the Jindal Institute of Behavioural Sciences (JIBS).
JILDEE also engaged with the West Bengal Government wherein 25 officers of the State Administrative Service underwent a 5-day domestic module on Public Finance and Budgeting at JGU and were then taken to Singapore for a 5-day programme held at the LKY School, NUS.
