MDP for Mid-Level Managers of PSBs

The Vital First Step To Effective Leadership

“Every good leader is part manager and every manager is part leader.”

Reach Out and Get Connected

About 1/4th of the 1.5 lakh mid-level managers at Indian public sector banks are approaching retirement in the next few years. This massive leadership vacuum has seen rapid promotions, with many young officers assuming mid-level management responsibilities. Their fresh perspectives are invaluable, and must be supplemented by effective, inspirational leadership capabilities to meet the challenges of a rapidly transforming formal banking sector.

Acclimate to your new role and responsibilities through personality development, building strong relationships, and enhancing your leadership skills.
