Corporate world requires true leaders who possess the right management style to lead and work with the fellow workers. The college plays the role of catalyst in the career maps of MBAs through this initiative by instilling in them the right skill sets that they can take forward in life. The coveted program has been designed with a balanced mix of academic and extracurricular activities solely aimed at honing leadership potential of management graduates. Anuradha Apan, an FLP student said, “The workshops helped in building the right level of confidence in me and in becoming self-reliant. Also, the workshops helped me focus on my weaker areas and I can now clearly project myself in the right manner.” To this another FLP student, Sakshi Saini added, “FLP Program helped me channelize my energy in the right direction. There is still a lot to achieve and I will do so with patience and clarity so that the skills can be practiced and implemented throughout life.” As per Sakshi, leadership is to achieve goals with the team and grow with them; there has to be a feeling of connectedness in the group/team. True to her words, FLP’s aim has always been to build a true management leader and not a boss.

Manu Choudhary highlighted that FLP has helped him in trying newer ways of doing things and to not get deterred by the challenges that might come up in the newer processes. Social Projects and Live Projects for him were a window to the corporate world. He enthusiastically puts, “The social project at ZMQ taught me how to work on extremely low resources, strive for the best and work in areas not thought of before. Thankful to the project, it was an eye opener for me. I can now efficiently work upon crisis management and not get hindered by challenges.” He concluded his presentation on learnings and outcomes of the FLP Program in one very valuable statement – “Every challenge is an opportunity and every lost challenge is an opportunity forgone.”
