“The impact of APLP on my personality development as a whole has helped me enormously in my professional life. I have come to see leadership as not just about one’s personal traits, behavioral aspects or situational opportunities; it is as much about learning and nurturing too. Leadership, for me, is not just about success; it is about failure too.”
