Insights and stories


Rebooting first-time managers program – InMobi's journey

In 2018, InMobi’s L&D team launched a first-time managers program after identifying an opportunity to bridge leadership development. It was rebranded as the “I Lead” program. In 2019, three new programs were launched – a Milestone program for first-time managers, a Capstone program for seasoned managers and a Keystone program for high potential employees.

The company faced new challenges along the way. While impactful classroom sessions were designed for two to five days, it wasn’t easy to engage participants over six months, post the live classroom sessions. It was also challenging to engage with learners spread across different time zones globally. Participation was not at the optimal levels.

"The session was interesting and informative. Highly recommended for all. "

Thank you for the great session

I learnt how to stay calm and handle situations during stressful times. The concept of conditional yes was useful rather than dening the request to our stakeholders.

It was a wonderful session

The 8 Trust Building Behaviors and the examples of psychology safety group exercises were great. The facilitator made it easier for us to understand and shared ideas so we can implement it at work. It was a wonderful session.

Very effective session

The situations discussed were very familiar to our day to day operations and we were able to easily correlate to it.
Thank you for this session. The presentation style was great and we had a lot of opportunities to ask questions and talk about real life examples which made this session enjoyable and informative.
I loved the concept of change and how the facilitator described what Change is before taking us through the concepts of driving and managing change.

Another fabulous session.
