We will draw on themes from core teaching of Organisational Behaviour and Responsible Leadership and provide you with the opportunity to practice the behaviours that you will need for success.

Professional development

Your journey will start by helping you to understand you as an individual, what type of leader you are and how others perceive you.  We will then look at how you work in a team and your leadership style.  The final stage will help you see where you fit into the wider organisation and look at the specific skills necessary to cope with the fast-changing demands our technology-driven world, helping you to future-proof you career.
