India’s economic growth is largely attributed to its “demographic dividend” – a large pool of talented, competitive and growing young workforce. For India Inc., this is an opportunity as well as a challenge.
Today, India Inc. needs more business leaders than ever before, who can not only direct the energies of the young professionals but also create new opportunities to creatively engage them.
If you are the one who thinks you have what it takes to be a business leader, you have an opportunity – The Economic Times, India’s largest business daily, has launched “The Economic Times Young Leaders” initiative today.

Indian professionals between 26 and 32 years can can both nominate themselves or be nominated by their companies, before being tested on leadership skills in a structured and rigorous four-phase process that will culminate with one-on-one sessions with eight high-profile business leaders and CEO’s. To do so, this program will use proven competencies developed by SHL Plc, and the Indian School of Business.
In my view, the concept is excellent, and the one that our business eco-system really needs. This initiative not only attempts to fill the leadership gap, but also provides a strong platform where aspiring individuals can test their competencies benchmarked against leadership metrics that have been developed based on learnings and experiences of corporate leaders from across the world.
It is an opportunity to shine, to be the best version of yourself and to accelerate your career. Don’t miss it!
