About this programme

The middle manager is the backbone of the corporate machinery. They nourish fresh ideas, ensure the ordered flow of communication, maintain the health of the company, and allow the percolation of next-generation ideas to set into strong foundations. Despite their contributions, they may feel undervalued, unappreciated, and stagnated in their careers. 

SoME’s Competent Leaders Programme will enable you to reinvent yourself as a powerful communicator: see how you can efficiently funnel information between teams and external clients, articulate your messages strongly, defuse potentially explosive situations, and adopt multiple communication styles to handle diverse individuals. 

Importantly, you will unplug bottlenecks, facilitate strong team-building, and manage time efficiently. Your competence, strategising and networking skills will shine a new light on your leadership capabilities and position you as tomorrow’s industry titan.

The Level 1 of leadership course by SoME was one of the best experiential learning courses I have attended in a long time. The course focuses on improving communication skills for leaders and gives a very simple set of strategies and guiding principles to navigate the environment and increase their chances for success. It helped me realise how I should communicate with the relevant stakeholders to align them in favor of my success. In just six weeks I am more confident in my skills and am able to present my ideas and convince others of them. The cherry on top, I have also been appreciated on the communication and presentation skills that I groomed during the course. Thanks Rakesh and the SoME team for putting this together.

This year one of my major goals was to learn more about leadership and the skills needed to be a good leader.  As I was looking for good courses, I learned about the Competent Leaders Programme (CLP) from the School of Meaningful Experiences (SoME). Glad I  enrolled in this programme. The guides and mentors of SoME made this programme very relatable and practical. I love how the course was structured and how the feedback was shared with individual participants. The detailed assessments from the SoME guides were incredible. I was able to assess the areas that I needed to work on with the practical solutions to improve in those areas. Through this course, I built my soft skills on the Six Cs (Communication, Confidence, Creativity, Curiosity, Collaboration, and Competence). I highly recommend this course to anyone who would love to learn and gain expertise in these areas and are ready to take a plunge into leadership roles.
