programs_islamic-leadership_program.jpgThe Islamic Leadership Fellows Program (ILFP) is a leadership development initiative created specifically for Muslim leaders in Southeast Asia.  It is designed to enhance the skills, knowledge, values, and attitudes of its Fellows to help them become more effective leaders. In line with this, ILFP's curriculum is composed of courses on self-mastery, leadership and management, and social development as informed by Islamic doctrine and actual practice.  In addition, it makes use of peer exchange, mentoring, exposure trips, and various adult learning methods to situate its content.  This ensures that ILFP Fellows gain a real understanding of key leadership concepts and practices from both the Islamic perspective and other relevant models, and how they may apply these in their own contexts.

For its pilot run, the first batch of Fellows had a mix of leaders from the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. This was conducted from December 2009 to March 2010, with three major workshops held in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
