The training focused on Self Mastery and as the journey of leadership begins with self-discovery. The program facilitated the exploration of participants passion and purpose in life and discovering the gift that they can contribute for the greater good. The training underscored the importance of advancing “Moral and Innovative Leadership” in providing methods through which that vision can be realized by harnessing man’s natural creative need to advance the human condition and in promoting “greater good” that can benefit not only the individual but the larger society, nation and eventually the world.
