“What makes a great leader?” Dave Ulrich, Norm Smallwood, and Kate Sweetman set out to answer this question – to crack the code of leadership. Drawing on decades of research experience, the authors conducted extensive interviews with the thought leaders in this field – and heard the same five essentials repeated again and again. 

These five rules became the ‘Leadership Code’. Now Deepal Sooriyaarachchi, the most sought after people-developer and business professional, a consulting partner of RBL Group USA, harnessing Asian wisdom and the cutting-edge thinking of the Leadership Code, delivers a unique Leadership Development Program in association with Inspireone over four days on 22-23 June and 6-7 July.  This is the third public presentation of the Leadership Academy.



The Leadership Code

There are five rules that effective leaders in any organisation must live by in order to be successful, says Dave Ulrich introducing the Leadership Code:

1. Leaders must invest in themselves to be personally proficient. Effective leaders manage their physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual selves well. They learn constantly. They are capable of quick, bold actions as well as great patience. They constantly deepen their insight about themselves. This is especially true in tough economic times when people look to their leaders for hope.

2. Good leaders know how to be strategists and are able to answer the question “Where are we going?” They test their big ideas pragmatically, and they work with others to find the path from the present to the desired future.

3. Effective leaders are executors. They ask: “How will we ensure that we reach our goal?” They understand how to make change happen, assign accountability, delegate appropriately, and make sure that teams work well together.

4. These leaders are talent managers and engage people to get things done now and in a manner that generates intense personal, professional, and organisational loyalty. They help people bring their best to the job at hand.

5. Finally, they are human capital developers who build the next generation. They make sure that the organisation has the longer-term skills, knowledge, behaviours and attitudes for future strategic success.

The program Deepal delivers will be based on the above five core attributes of leadership.

While the program itself is well grounded on research and best in class methodologies, the facilitator Deepal Sooriyaarachchi too adds significant value to the whole delivery process. Deepal himself had delivered modules along with Norm and others of RBL Group focusing on developing mindfulness as an executive capability, a special interest area of Deepal’s. He will bring in three decades of senior management experience in leading one of the leading companies in Sri Lanka as well as his enormous wealth of knowledge in Eastern wisdom and hands-on knowledge and sensitivities of the local audiences.

Deepal is the former Managing Director of AVIVANDB Insurance (AIA). He serves on a number of boards He also functioned as the Commissioner of the Sri Lanka Inventors Commission and has authored over 15 books locally and internationally. His writings and presentations are so popular because of his unique ability to present even the most complex concepts in a very simple manner. He is passionate about developing people and brings this ability to inspire others. Participating in a program delivered by Deepal is in itself a life changing experience. Deepal has delivered over 1,000 People Development interventions in 11 countries across all five continents. Participants will have the opportunity of getting coached and mentored by Deepal who is an Accredited Master Coach and Mentor (IACM).

Considering the highly-personalised nature of the program, only a very limited number of persons will be enrolled. Details can be obtained from inspireone@sltnet.lk or 0777186266.
