Creating Excellence In Organizations - An Executive Coaching Program

Do you need a fresh pair of eyes?

Each one of us has some blindness or the other. In most cases, this blindness impedes the effective living of our individual lives, or functioning of our teams and organizations.

This program will reveal your blindness, opening up a whole new world for you. For example, when you discover that the way you see is not the only way to see, and is just one way of seeing- this simple awareness will open up a whole new world for you.

And when you see differently, new actions emerge for you, and when you take new actions- you generate new results. Often, participants start to realize that they may be working hard, and yet, they are operating as a bull in a China shop does- they continue to cause damage and they don’t even know that they don’t know that they are causing damage.

Embarking On Your Leadershp Journey

“Leadership is a journey, not a destination. It is a marathon, not a sprint. It is a process, not an outcome.” — John Donahoe, president of eBay

Leadership is not a state, it’s a journey. Which is why, the Institute for Generative Leadership covers all levels of the leadership journey, including self-management and leadership of others by growing the value of the promises you make and fulfill in the world.

  • We support you to become your best as a leader, and then continue to grow
  • You go beyond just conceptual learning to action learning
  • You develop your capacity to create more valuable futures for yourself and others
  • You learn experientially through working with your actual work and life commitments

Just Do It: The Art Of Putting Knowledge Into Action.

A New Guinea proverb that states, ‘Knowledge is a rumor until it is in the muscle’. We can’t agree more. After all, knowledge, till it is not put into action, is of limited or no use.

In the beginning of the program, we’ll ask you to put down what precisely you want to achieve over a period of 11 months. Through this duration, the entire learning will be focused on you achieving this result that you have declared. The coach and your learning team will support you in generating that result which matters to you.
This is called action learning (You learn in action).

Why The CEO Program?

  • Acquire new knowledge
  • Learn about your blind spots
  • Participate in regular practices over the course of the 11 months that help you shift your embodiment
  • Work with a group of like-minded people who support you to generate results
  • Be coached in a group by an experienced professional
  • Most importantly, generate results that take you to the next level

How Does The Program Work?

  • Conferences: The way the program works is that you attend a 3-day conference every 4 months. This is where your conceptual learning takes place.
  • Leadership Practices: The real learning takes place in the application of what is leant in your organization setting. You will be provided with learning papers and practices.
  • Learning Groups: Learning groups are formed of 5-6 participants. Each member supports the learning of the group.
  • Group Coaching: Every fortnight (once every 2 weeks), there is a group coaching call scheduled to support you in the application of the learning.



The term ‘dojo’ derives from the traditional Japanese arts. It means the “place of training”. It’s origin is from the Sanskrit word ‘bodhimanda’, which translates to the ‘place of awakening’. A dojo is then a place to awaken to and learn new ways of being in the world. It is remarkable to think that as long as human beings have recorded their history – for more than 5000 years – there are references to places of gathering together to learn and to “wake up”*.

While, you will become aware of new knowledge in this program in a place we call the “dojo”, we invite you to consider where ever you are in your life as your dojo.

Because ‘the place of awakening’ does not need an address. Where ever you practice, becomes your dojo.

*The Leadership Dojo by Richard Strozzi Heckler


Your New Mirror
The role of the mirror is to show people what they cannot see, the reflection of the mirror makes it easier to be acquainted with their physical self. The job of a coach is that of a mirror- he enables you to see what you cannot see on your own.

Session By International Leaders And Coaches
Through the duration of the 11 months, we will invited experts and coaches from the field of generative leadership to interact with all of you program participants. These sessions will be conducted as webinars and will expose you to interesting and new topics in this area.

I believe, from the leadership perspective, the next big thing after disruptive thinking would be to actively “declare breakdowns”.
Kiran Mazumdar Shaw
Chairman & Managing Director, Biocon

Too many of us—leaders, managers, even youngsters—get trapped into the flow of the routine. In Declaring Breakdowns, Sameer Dua provides a how-to manual that—through examples and anecdotes, combined with a theoretical underpinning—presents a way out.
Highly recommended reading for anyone who wants to change their life and create a new future.
Kiran Karnik
Former President, NASSCOM

Sameer’s book talks about the need for all of us to look at the future, see the default future that we are gliding towards and declare a breakdown in case you want to change. He says this beautifully in the book when he points out that for everybody future is uncertain and unless we accept this uncertainty and declare a breakdown, we are not going to see better days.
Mohandas Pai
Chairman, Manipal Group Education Services


CEO_Testimonials_2“We as a management team are currently going through a major change where we need to revise our current strategy in order to maintain our success in the future. Therefore, we organised an incredible workshop with Sameer, which opened up the eyes and mindset of each one of us in a really powerful way. I am absolutely convinced that this workshop will support all organisations and individuals going through important changes to achieve the desired targets.”
Klaus Trescher
MD and CEO, Siemens Technology and Services Pvt. Ltd.

“The Being of a Leader” program nicely combines input with practice and does something that other programs do not do: it ensures continuity and learning throughout a period of time which allows participants to make self-reflection an inherent part of their individual growth. This concept paired with Sameer’s experience in Leadership Development and the wonderful person I got to know him as, will have a strong impact and will give a new perspective to leaders in making sustainable differences.”
Mirko Kobiela
Director Group HR, Center of Excellence Talent – Performance & Succession, Adidas Group

In my experience of 24 years in Finance Industry, across the Globe, I have been observing the need for a program which not only develops leadership at work-place but also creates better individuals at home. My search ended with the Generative Leadership program by Sameer Dua. I can assertively say that, this program brought in dynamic change in the outlook, performance and vision of my Senior Management. They are today, substantially enriched with skill sets to fix and achieve goals and motivate their staff.
Vikrant Ponkshe
Managing Director, The Cosmos Co-operative Bank Ltd.

“Sameer hit the group of leaders right between the eyebrows and woke up each individual to commence a long journey where he would not lead us anymore, but allow our newly accepted realities and corrections to bring change in our personal and professional worlds. Sameer is rare talent- glad we found him.”
