The Institute for Personal Leadership (IPL) brings leadership development and culture change to organizations globally, from Fortune 500s to social enterprises. Our work draws upon Professor Hitendra Wadhwa's award-winning research and teaching at Columbia Business School. Our team brings strong backgrounds in corporate leadership, psychology, neuroscience, digital transformation, branding, human capital, strategy consulting, the US military and NASA.
IPL's mission is to help individuals, teams and organizations approach their full potential by creating ever-increasing outer impact through ever-deepening inner mastery. Our work is based on universal truths about human nature being uncovered by latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, genetics, sociology, psychotherapy and behavioral economics, and exemplified by the lives of great leaders from history.
We offer transformational learning experiences at all levels of the organization through workshops, coaching, digital learning, keynotes, webinars and consulting. We recognize that true behavior change comes only from deliberate practice, so we complement our teaching of personal leadership principles and techniques with our digital learning platform, Mentora, which provides participants with opportunities for everyday reflection, application, inspiration, practice and feedback.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
