The Centre for Social and Organisational Leadership, School of Management and Labour Studies, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) welcomes applications for its programme 'UNFOLD: A field-based 3 Week Winter School on Organisation Development, Change and Leadership in Social Sector Organisations in India'

About the Program:

Globally, leaders of high impact institutions have expressed the utmost importance of investing in capacity building within the area of Organisation Development, Change and Leadership (ODCL) so as to build stronger and more dynamic organisations. Students and professionals across the sectors with knowledge of their core interest areas have expressed a lacuna of knowledge or skills in understanding and nurturing their own organisations as well as being effective change agents.

Keeping this in mind, C SOL TISS proposes a three-week field-based winter school program which would develop Organisation Development, Change and Leadership learning at three levels: Self, Group and Organisations.

In the first week, through a series of 5 activity-based workshops, participants will experience unfolding of the self in multi-cultural diversified organisational settings, enhance their ability to understand group and team processes, and learn to diagnose organisational challenges as well as identify various points of interventions to create change processes.

Over the next two weeks, the participants will be engaged in field based experiential learning in pairs/groups within social sector organisations. Equipped with workshop learning and exposed to detailed fieldwork frameworks, participants will understand and diagnose the organisational challenges, identify and empower change agents within the organisation and suggest changes as well as possibilities for inter and intra-organisational collaborations.

Throughout the program, an important stress would be laid on exploring, understanding and building appreciation for ‘Self’ as an instrument of change.

Winter School Programme on Organisation Development, Change and Leadership has following Objectives -

  1. To make participants understand and appreciate the field of Organisation Development, Change and Leadership as well as to establish internal consistency across several levels of their understanding: conceptual, methodological, practical, organizational and contextual
  2. To present pragmatic avenues for students to apply their learnings (diagnostics assessment and development, implementation and management of change interventions) about aiding effective organizational processes in development programmes
  3. To facilitate sharing of learning so as to build an action plan for possible collaborations
  4. To identify and develop social and business enterprises leadership styles, approaches and methods by learning about environment and culture; being more adaptive in influencing the right incumbent; developing an ability to lead from any position in the social sector organisations and creating enterprise wide solutions that provide great value for organisations and public.
  5. To visualize the relevance and application in own home contexts of participants as well as the action implications
