Institute for Personal Leadership

IPL logo

IPL was founded at Columbia Business School by award-winning Professor Hitendra Wadhwa, whose course is the most popular leadership elective. Personal Leadership is the scientific discipline of bringing out the best in yourself, in others, and in all situations. This approach provides an empowering and inclusive invitation to all employees to have a positive impact and 'lead' across their sphere of influence. 

IPL builds on universal laws of human nature that are validated by the latest scientific research, exemplified by the lives of great leaders, and operationalized by practical toolkits while being accessible to all through our digital ecosystem and learning technology.
