Future Leader Programme—Igniting Lights for Tomorrow

Saikat Sen, Director, Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management (SAFIM) conducted 45 hours training programme from December 2017 to February 2018 (15 hours per month) on ‘Future Leader Programme—Igniting Lights for Tomorrow’, for Post Graduate students of Family Managed Business (FMB) of Auro University, Surat. This program deals with the qualities that enable students to envisage a dynamic vision for the future, to harness the potential within them to deliver the vision into a successful reality and to contribute in the larger social orb that extends beyond the boundaries of their work and personal life. The program is facilitated in an experiential format to help assimilate and actualize the learning more effectively.

The programme was highly appreciated and the students actively participated in all the sessions.

Along with lectures, the teaching and learning process included learning through case studies, interactive technology linked exercises, learning through music, movies, games, theatres, videos, and student led activities. The entire program was experiential in nature.

The program also enabled students open up, imbuing them with self-confidence & enthusiasm. A lot of reflective sessions help them to understand about their self leading to discovery of inner potential. Beside class activities each student was given assignment at the individual level and was analysed and evaluated by the facilitators of SAFIM to help them to develop those qualities.


The program was very good, mind blowing, fantastic, boom boom. I learnt a lot. Most importantly started knowing myself. Now learn some of the way to find real me & some good ways to remove negativity. -  Pratik Nakrani, FMB , Auro University.

It is an amazing experience. Helps you know yourself better & develop in the best way. We can learn ways to change us & even our organization better & happily with kindness. The methods & exercises which sir has asked to do were interesting. New ways were there to learn & understand actual things & facts. Interactive sessions were good for installing goodness in ourselves. - Shyam, FMB , Auro University.

It helped me to know my capabilities and made me work on it and able to come out of my comfort zone and work on it. I can feel the change in myself from not speaking to a speaking girl and fear is going off. I found most interesting in the programme was the activities, exercises, skit – full of fun and learning. – Priyal Donda, PGD FMB , Auro University.

This is the absolutely fantastic program. After this program I learned the things which are very important for my life and my business too. The most interesting thing in this programme is the small-small things and the change in me is amazing. It is not like that I become a millionaire or like that but learned something which is life changing. – Himalay Rana, FMB , Auro University.

After this program I become a self-motivated person. I got to know the qualities or value that I lack, which can help me to get success. The most interesting part of the programme was that it was more of practical based rather than theoretical.  – Chaitanya Shah, PGD FMB , Auro University.

It was an amazing experience; it teaches and finds us our inner selves. To be able to make you think outside our comfort zone is remarkable. – Swapnil, FMB , Auro University
