Feedback from the previous course: 

“The course was quite different; not a one-way lecture room style but a mode where we all communicate what we know and what works. It’s not just text book, but enables us to live within our management and leadership challenges and create answers that function and are real.”  Senior Manager

“My leadership skills are sharpened, I can draw out the emotions of my team, blend them with my own and deliver the objectives of the organisation.”  Director, Financial Services
