Leadership Centre’s process of co-creating the design and joint delivery brought the organizational context which is critical to make the learning practical. The instruments used in the one-year long intervention, have the flavour of an experienced HR and business leader, and of standards which may international firms would be proud of.

We have used the facility and the designs for our middle level leadership programs and we have also developed our senior level leadership program where Leadership Centre is a great partner. Ram, being a practitioner, has brought a lot of views on the table which has helped us. Leadership Centre has become a strengthened arm of our organization.

Learning with Ram and his colleagues at Leadership Centre has been an enriching experience. His approach is a refreshing antidote to the feel-good, “seven steps to heaven” take on leadership. With a knack for unravelling and examining the bare-knuckle leadership challenges that every leader faces, he works with his participants to evolve un-orthodox yet practical ways of understanding such dilemmas, determining the canvas of strategic choices the leader has, and deploying them in full awareness of the impact of such choices. Leadership Centre is a valued partner in L&T Financial Services' endeavours in the domain of leadership development.

Leadership Centre is one of the best-in-class learning centers I have ever seen in India. It has a world-class infrastructure and provides an environment to learn without any distractions. At Bharti AXA we wanted to create a program for the HR team to help them strengthens their HR Business Partner skills. The program was well conceptualized and meticulously planned to give a world-class experience to the participants. The participants learned immensely from this experience, and it is visible from their quality of work. Due credit goes to Ram Kumar for creating such a platform dedicated to building leaders for tomorrow.

The program has really transformed me, it has created a big positive approach in me with more confidence and ability to think beyond the limits. I take out time whatsoever to help my colleagues to think in my line of thinking and create positivism and pass on the good things which I had learnt in my career and implement them in the real life, even if its office or home.

"Thank you for seeking our feedback. Here is what I feel, straight from the heart: ""I personally feel that the 'Transformational Leadership' session truly makes the participant introspect and take a deep dive into 4 key elements of leadership i.e. Using Power, Understanding Perspectives, Managing Risks & Interpersonal Dynamics. Mastering these fundamentals in-depth will indeed enhance every leader's horizon and thereby make a huge difference to his team and the organization at large. With Ram Sir as the torchbearer for this program, this intervention gives every participant learn the finer nuances of leadership dynamics from a wide array of flavors spread across geographies and evolutionary periods in world history.  Ram Sir's gigantic experience as an influencer and a thought leader in the field of human behavior is worth its weight in gold and plays a significant role in the success of this program. I would strongly recommend every leader worth their salt to take a dip in this ocean of knowledge and also look forward to my next learning experience with Ram Sir."

  • L&T Financial Services

It has been a wonderful journey. Words cannot express how people have felt after the program and there has been tremendous feedback from all across. Something which really stands out is that Leadership Centre really takes efforts to understand the context of the organization as well as its teams. The understanding that one gets before beginning the program, and tailoring the message looking at the context and making it appealing for that audience has really been fantastic and worked very well for Sun.

Leadership Centre, Ram and his wonderful team, are a bunch of really passionate individuals who want to create a difference. Our summer internship program, with 60 summer trainees who were so excited to hear the stories Ram brought to the table, and it really opened their minds. Whom so ever mentioned that millennials don’t learn so easily, is mistaken, it is just the format that is needed to ignite them.

"For me this programme has been really helpful to understand my personality and my leadership style. More particularly, I found Mr.Ram's coaching and mentoring style as very impactful. He has a very bold and candid way of delivering lectures. Practical examples from his past experiences are very helpful in understanding the nuances and dynamics of corporate life, take responsibility for your actions and avoid getting trapped into victim consciousness. Personally for me the design of the programme is like having a mirror in front of me which helps me to understand my strengths & weakness and propels me to work upon my areas of improvement."

The great thinker Aristotle had once said, "Excellence is an art won by training and habituation" Indeed, we attend each training with the intention of winning the art of excellence in what we do and make it a habit. The purpose of training is to provide you with inputs to adjust your focus on the skill sets required in your professional life to achieve the BIG (Business and Individual growth) aim in your life. Certainly, Mr. Ramkumar has gone one step ahead in this regard. He made me rediscover the leader in me. The training was so genuine that the lessons he gathered from his own life experiences helped us answer many questions we face in our everyday life. He could successfully develop a passion in all of us about the training. The small games and activities we played and the post analysis of it help us have a deeper understanding of the leadership challenges we face. If I am asked to explain his method of training in one word, I would put it as nothing but "passion". He is a successful trainer because at the end of the training program he made us all passionate about our work through the lessons he imparted. The ambience of the leadership centre was also amazing. The stone statue of 'Palazhimadanam', the photographs taken during the construction stages of the Centre, the responsible staff, well arranged rooms and courteous supporting staff, all stand as a testimony to the leadership skill he possess and the level of competence he tries to inculcate on his disciples. One of the best things I did in my life in 2017 was to attend the training session of Mr. Ramkumar, not once but twice. It opened many doors of self-realisation in front of me. Doors which were hitherto there but closed till I met him.

Program prepared us for next level of leadership. It re-inforced us to evaluate our ambitions and gave us tools to help us achieve those. Pre-work forced us to write concept papers which we never thought we could in such a manner. Group discussion on two unknown industries again made us aware that if we put our mind to it we are capable of lot more than what we think.Overall the program made me aware that I had already transformed into matured leader ready for the next leap ahead.

Every facility and service, beginning from the lecture halls, discussion rooms, conference room, open auditorium to rooms and dining facilities, at the Kautilya Leadership Centre is of a very high standard which facilitates open and easy communication, positivity and stress-free learning.

Firstly, the program is conducted without the usual power point presentation style, which has been the key strength / highlight of the program. Secondly, our Trainer, Mr Ramkumar shares his personal experience while taking us through the session, which makes the program very practical.

Nestled in the foothills of Western Ghats, the facility added a splendid experience to the induction. Away from the chaos of the city the learning and bonding which occurred here was incomparable. The comfortable room settings, hospitable staff and activity room are added attraction to this place. And of course the food compels you to visit again!

The program was well broken into various sections and all the aspects of leadership were explained in detail and some activity for all of us to do to understand it better. It didn't feel like a classroom training at all as the whole group was so much involved. There were so many queries raised, clarification asked, doubts cleared that the whole process became so joyous. Mr Ram was open to new ideas which came from the group and listened to various personal experiences the group had faced in their respective lives.

  • L&T Financial Services

I am writing to let Kautilya know how much we appreciate the outstanding customer service that your staff provided on our visit in May 2022. Your staff was very attentive and helpful. The staff I interacted with, especially Mr.Vishal Dhoble, was very knowledgeable about your property and the hospitality rendered. You & your team have put together a great team that makes customers feel respected and valued. We would like to wish you All the Best for future & look forward to associate with your team in the future.

Quality of facilities is a critical component of success of any training program, and this is especially true in the current scenario when all of our programs are being conducted in-person. In that respect, Kautilya has been a great aid for many of our training programs, and we are delighted at our overall experience there! We have used Kautilya facility for various leadership programs this FY. We have conducted programs for various employee cohorts, ranging from top management to mid level managers as well as our internal high potential cohort. We have found it to be an extremely professionally managed facility which offers a peaceful learning environment for the participants and gives them the right ecosystem to indulge in classroom as well as group activities outside the classroom. The boarding and lodging are in fine taste, and give a warm vibe to everyone availing of these. These help in offering a holistic learning environment for the programs to be conducted. The team there has been extremely responsive and have attended to all our employee queries and have assisted them throughout the stay there. The feedback from the employees availing the services has been extremely positive and the overall learning environment as well as availability of extra-curricular facilities has ensured a smooth and effective conduct of our training programs. I would like to compliment the team on the set up and maintenance of this facility and would look for a long-term collaboration with them.
