Dear RTL Alumni

Welcome to the community of continued practice and learning of RTL!



Are you a RTL Alumni/attended a workshop by Monica Sharma in India with Tata institute of Social Sciences (TISS) or RTL-Works? (Workshops of Dr Monica Sharma were called Radical Transformational Leadership (RTL) after the publication of here award-winning book in Dec 2017). If yes and you are not on the RTL India mailing list, please fill up the form below.



If you are an alumni pre 2017 and do not have the RTL Book we will send you one



Below are several opportunities that you can join and engage:


All the above free, at no extra costs. In addition we also have

Repeating Stage 1 Course 

Repeating Stage 1 (9 days)

It is preferable to repeat RTL workshops at least twice, in order to gain more clarity of practice and rigor. We offer alumni, a 50 % discount on the course to repeat the stage 1 course of 9 days. (Amounts to Rs. 15930 inc. GST)




1.     To enhance learning-in-action for generating enduring and equitable results

2.     To support members of the book club who wish to establish learning circles


Why a Book Club?


This book, Radical Transformational Leadership: Strategic Action for Change Agents, is deep and profound. One can mull into each sentence for hours and a chapter for weeks. This book is not only about the theory of change; it is mainly about the theory and praxis of change. Practice and application are core aspects of learning-in-action programs (LIAPs) of RTL. The numerous extraordinary examples in the book are the result of these learning-in-action programs. 

Post attending an RTL LIAP/training, reading the book enhances learning and practice of RTL tools and templates. Reading the book and participating in Book Club supplements the workshop learning and practice  


How Does the Book Club Work?

We form a group of 3 to 10 per book club.


Participants - Minimum 3, Maximum 10

All participants will commit to being regular in the book club meetings 


Frequency - Calls are held weekly on Zoom. Every week/fortnight participants read 10-20 pre-decided pages from Dr. Monica Sharma’s book. 



  • Check in 

  • Taking turns, begin with name and stand, each participant first reads sentences that generated reflection/insight. Focus on reflection of the past or learning for my practice or connecting the same to new learning for practice.

  • A RTL “Practitioner Coach“ will anchor each call and process the learning.

  • You will find learning in terms and depth and diversity of sharing from each sharing. Sometimes 3 to 4 sharing of reflections from the same sentence gives greater insights and depth.

  • In the second-round people share their reflection based on what they hear from each other. Here participants who have missed reading the weekly reading assignment can engage and share reflections generated from the first round of sharing.

  • Acknowledgment of my learning from group- One 1 thing I learnt (very brief 1 or 2 sentences) from the group.

  • Decide on page readings for the next session.

  • One word check out.



If you wish to continue in triad call practice and be put in a triad with other alumni, please drop an email or call:
