The second phase will see a professional trainer lead three days on ‘Building Leadership Skills’. The final phase of the training will have ample practical exercises, exposure trip, event management shows, panel discussion with women leaders (Indians and Tibetans).

Sneak preview to the success story of the first ATWLT:

The first ATWLT was held from 7th – 17th June 2010 at the House of Peace and Dialogue, Upper TCV School. Thirty professional and high potential Tibetan women leaders from all over India participated in this 11-day training, which is the first of its kind. It proved to be a niche platform and a creative forum for potential women leaders to identity and hone their leadership skills. The 11-day training was divided into three phases; professional and experienced resource speakers from the exile Tibetan Community officiated or led the first phase of the training on ‘Understanding Leadership’. Lynda O Lepcha, the director and master trainer of Holistic Training Solutions (New Delhi) led the second phase of the training on ‘Building Leadership Skills’. The TWA trainers along with Michelle Pomeroy, a young trainer from the United States who served as a training coordinator, spearheaded the final phase of the training on ‘Practicing Leadership’. Gaea Logan, professional psychotherapist, a professor and author based in the United States actuated the evening sessions on ‘Women and Personal Dialogue.’ The Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation through the Tibet Fund (based in USA) supported this maiden venture of TWA with the much needed financial impetus, along with financial resources from the Open Meadows Foundation.

The past TWA ten-day leadership trainings have proven extremely successful in fostering leadership skills among Tibetan women and Tibetan nuns to encourage women to become effective leaders within their own lives and within the community.

Ms. Tenzin Tseyang indicated she found the training to provide resources that are beneficial for implementation in her office. She mentioned that the techniques taught in the training inspired her to realize that often problems in work occur due to lack of knowledge or training in areas of time management and other useful techniques.

“I learned how different people can be but there are different ways in dealing with persons of differing natures. Got plenty of feed forward to empower myself.”

“It was fun, educative, motivating, challenging and effective.”

“Communication skill is must for a leader. Very informative, could relate so well with the activities, and a complete new exposure especially the exercise on press conference, loved it.”
