The Institute of Leadership Development is a non-profit registered society promoted by the IFCI, a leading Financial Institution in India. MDI Gurgaon also comes under the aegis of the IFCI. The Institute is located at Jaipur and its intimate catchment area is the capital city of Jaipur and the State of Rajasthan.
The establishment of Institute of Labour Development (ILD), in the year 1992, by the Industrial Finance Corporation of India Ltd., (IFCI), was in recognition of the fact that, alongside the management, the workers have to be provided with opportunities and external facilities of training and development, as are available to others for meeting the challenges of change. The scope of work at ILD during this time was limited to upgradation of existing technical skills of production personnel and enhancement of the management capabilities of personnel managers and supervisory staff in the areas of leadership development and other skill sets.
In order to widen the ambit of the Institute of Labour Development, its Board of Governance in the year 2008, decided to revamp it as the Institute of Leadership Development, and since then ILD is conceived as an integrated centre for teaching, learning and training and research in all areas and across all sectors of leadership development.
Today ILD is working towards its mission to build capacities and infuse real and discriminatory leadership skills among all levels of the work force and human resources of all types of organizations: business and corporate entities, SMEs, NGOs, social action groups, key developmental sectors like education, health, energy and environment and the wide sweep of the government sector.
