Training Resources

Resources developed at LBSNAA and other institutions.

I focused a decent amount of my time & resources on executive training during last decade and half.

This skill got honed during 2012-14 at LBSNAA, the India’s apex public administration training institute. This happened – especially given my role as director of the Government of India’s National Center for Leadership Development & Competency Assessment (NCLDCA).
