Leadership Philosophy at Indus International School, Hyderabad
Leadership for Tomorrow is the central philosophy of the school. This stems forth
from the belief that Preparation for Life is the purpose of 21st century
education. At Indus, leadership is defined as the ability to first lead yourself
and then others (through service). As at the end of the day, leadership is experiential.
At Indus, we have a leadership curriculum that is taught formally from grades one
to twelve. The leadership curriculum has both a theory as well as an experiential
Theoretical Aspect: Under this aspect of the leadership curriculum, students
are taught the art of reflection which enables them to identify their strengths
and weaknesses. Based on this reflection, students arrive at personal, professional
and community service goals. The goals and action plans to realize the goals are
documented in a Leadership Journal. Persuasive Communication is another aspect of
the leadership curriculum. Students are trained on the various nuances of communication,
thus enabling them to be good communicators.
Experiential Aspect: At Indus, the focus is on all round development of the
child (Whole Education), without compromising on academic excellence. The latent
talent in children is developed and nurtured by special emphasis on art and music.
Excellent sports facilities and an emphasis on games, aids in development of a disciplined
approach towards physical fitness.
The Indus School of Leadership is a unique school that imparts experiential leadership
training to students. Indus School of Leadership is the only institution in India
which has a facility known as the Discovery Course. The Discovery Course is a sixty
foot tall high rope course which pushes one beyond his or her comfort zone and initiates
the process of growth from within, by developing courage, positive risk-taking,
resilience, humility and decision-making. For more information visit: www.indusschoolofleadership.com
Emphasis on Community Service enables students to imbibe the values of love, respect,
empathy & discipline. Students also get sensitized to local needs, which in turn
attunes them to global issues.
