Participants learn to unleash their true selves in the service of others – reconnecting with their strengths, embracing their leadership styles and developing the hard and soft skills that define modern, mission-oriented leadership.

The 10-month, five module programme combines best-in-class leadership, governance and personal development, with practical application. It is a blend of face-to-face group facilitation, personalised learning and executive coaching, with support and inspiration from established leaders navigating change daily.
