After last year's successful Collaborative Leadership Program at Hampta Pass, Goa Institute of Management (GIM) students are back for their second program. This time, we are conducting the program on the Chandrakhani Pass trek.

“The program is designed to help participants practice collaborative leadership — they learn to share control and avoid power struggle, to create an environment that enables others to lead in their area of responsibility, to build connections with other teams and stakeholders and to leverage the diversity in a team and tap its collective intelligence,” says Lakshmi Selvakumaran, Head of Learning and Development at Indiahikes.

Several organizations and management schools try to address this gap with theoretical frameworks, but it is not easy to put them into practice. This is where the Collaborative Leadership Program in the mountains comes in.

“In a short trek, students pick up key aspects of teamwork and collaboration. Last year, we saw this unfold on the 4-day Hampta Pass trek in a way that surprised even the facilitators," Lakshmi shares. She herself is headed to facilitate this year's program and is on her way to Manali. We will keep you posted about how the program unfolds.
