How We Work

Needs Analysis

Our thorough training needs analysis helps us meet you where you are and understand your core business needs. We then use these insights to design the right interventions that deliver the results that matter most to you.
Leadership Across Levels

Any program we design creates value for the organization AND the individual. It’s not an either/or. We focus on the whole person and we ensure they can lead themselves, others, and the business.
Fun & Engaging Environment

Our commitment to lifelong learning is followed closely by our obsession with making our programs fun and engaging – especially in the current virtual context. Keeping teams energized during our sessions is non-negotiable to us.
Emerging Markets Perspective

While bringing eye-opening insights from emerging markets, our faculty are also experienced impact practitioners who bring practical examples to our training.
Real-World Application

Because learning only creates value when applied, our programs facilitate on-the-job application. Any effective training requires practice and reflection. We focus on experiential methods, to make sure the learning sticks.

What They Say About Us

The idea for WISEN was born in early 2019 when a casual research exercise made us realize there was a lack of an association or network dedicated to women social entrepreneurs in India. We could not have asked for a better grantee than Amani Institute to make this network a reality.
– Ratna Mukherjee Sr. Public Engagement Specialist, U.S. Consulate General, Chennai
Every session was thought-provoking and could be related to my work and organization. There were lots of opportunities to ask questions and talk about real life examples which made the experience really enjoyable and informative. A wonderfully practical course – both personally and professionally.
– Purnima Singh, Participant
Amani’s thorough research and knowledge on leadership topics, a fantastic team of facilitators, and being open to co-designing relevant themes for our cohorts ensures a great learning and workshop experience for our entrepreneurs and us every year.
