Young Asian leaders honing their skills in this specialised programme with the Darden School of Business

Young Leaders Programme


In response to current and unprecedented disruptions to business practices, the HCLI has accelerated the timeline for a planned overall refresh in the content and processes of its programming. Changes have been made in the context of limitations in group gatherings and with an eye to increasing overall impact of the programme experience. For more details on the changes to the programme, please contact us at

YLP 2020 is at the forefront of these changes as they also speak to generational differences in learning styles. We have maintained YLP's core elements while adding new areas of value that can meet current needs but also grow into the years to come. We truly believe that YLP participants are the leaders of tomorrow.​

The Young Leaders Programme (YLP) helps address specific leadership challenges of learning and leading simultaneously. A primary objective of this program is to help you develop the frameworks and skills needed to enhance your ability to learn from experience. We seek to equip participants with the skills required to drive high performance and business results and eventually lead others. We also want participants to acquire a resilient and tenacious mindset to lead and excel. The YLP is suitable for first-time managers and those who are about to lead teams. You may have just received a promotion or are currently experiencing new pressures within a management role.
