Why Join IMLPD?

IMLPD is not your everyday professional body! This is because, issues of leadership are like matters of the heart, which require outright professional approach. And the world’s corporates are gradually looking away from being management dominated to a more balanced paraphernalia of leaders and managers, because as the saying goes, “Better leaders are those whom have been equipped or are equipping as better managers; and better managers are those whom have been equipped or are equipping as better leaders!” Also, the goal of leaders and managers alike is bottom line impact, hence productivity development.

IMLPD is somewhat a one-size-fits-all professional body because leadership, management and productivity development are key skills needed in all fields—whether you are taking on a new job; going for promotion; stepping into someone else’s shoes; dealing with change, challenges or uncertainty; considering a career change; thinking about becoming a professional and certified leader or management consultant; moving into a senior leadership and management role, and the like—with our wide range of specialist member services, IMLPD's curriculum cuts across all industries and sectors.

Life success is no longer a function of a university degree. The hard truth is that there is no university with a curriculum that teaches how to be financially free or successful. That is why it is not uncommon to see people with Ph.Ds and Master’s degree fail in business while many college drops-outs like Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, Richard Brandson, Michael Dell become creators of billion dollars empire. Having a B.Sc. in business Administration does not make you automatically a business owner. The new mantra in today’s workplace is, “Contribute more than you cost.” And if you cannot, you are shown out the door. Human resource professionals no longer have problem replacing a staff—they only now have problems with bringing in a staff that they had to replace—due to lack of performance. In the old workplace, keeping the staff fit for work was the exclusive job of the company. Today’s workplace is different—the staff has to keep himself or herself fit or be left behind! Hence, the need for Employability Skills, Job Readiness and Enterprise Development
