Blended learning for leadership skills at Coats PLC
A fully integrated blend

By the end of this year, there will be two MCD cohorts in North America, two in Latin America, four in Europe/MiddleEast/Africa, four in South Asia, three in North East Asia and two in South East Asian with many more cohorts launching in all these areas in 2015 and beyond. It is also the winner of a Bronze award in the category of Blended Learning in Brandon Hall Awards 2014.
"MCD provides a perspective of a leader's behavior in a variety of situations. Most often than not, these behaviors will lead to an increase in productivity, a better co-ordination amongst team members, higher achievements and an overall high satisfaction in one's work."
Adhip, Marketing Manager, Coats India
"The content is clear, it can help me to identify my management style as well as staff style to apply to right person and develop people. Through this [MCD eLearning] module I now change my style by spending more time for a dialogue with staff, develop people through staff style."
