Thailand, 19 - 30 November 2012
The 2012 Integrated Leadership Programme (ILP3) was a continuation of the series of executive learning programmes developed in partnership with IMC Industrial Group, East West Learning Centre (EWLC), and the Global Institute For Tomorrow (GIFT). EWLC and GIFT have previously conducted two successful ILPs together in 2010 and 2011. Participants on the inaugural programme in 2010 developed an Integrated Community Development Plan for the NIKP Sangatta oil palm plantation in East Kalimantan, while the 2011 programme saw participants return to East Kalimantan to create the Active Citizenship Together (ACT) Framework for community engagement.
ILP3 provided the same unique learning experience designed to enhance participants’ own development as current and future leaders of the company’s various business units while also advancing IMC Group’s mission to “serve human well-being and create wealth at the same time.”
Through an interactive group learning process and exposure to eye-opening ideas about globalisation, the role of business in society, leadership and corporate culture change participants proposed to senior management their recommendations to instill a culture of “HSSE Stewardship” throughout the company. “HSSE Stewardship” describes IMC’s approach to Health, Safety, Security & Environment that reflects the company’s holistic approach to business.
This year a group of 22 executives from 12 Business Units, and representing five nationalities, travelled to eastern Thailand to visit the country’s largest shipyard which is owned and operated by The Unithai Group – the Thailand arm of IMC industrial Group. To facilitate the production of a robust output for senior management meetings and focus groups were conducted with internal and external stakeholders including Unithai employees, local communities, suppliers, clients and neighbors.
On the final day of the programme the team presented to group-level senior management and business unit heads who travelled to Thailand for a forum and discussion centred on the topic of HSSE Stewardship.
