During your week you will truly uncover your personal style using in-depth and 360-degree leadership style and skills assessments. Highly interactive lectures, hands-on exercises and discussions with peers and faculty will empower you to build a comprehensive picture of your full potential as a leader.

We will work intensively with you to define and review your specific challenges through designated coaching sessions. You will emerge with a clear grasp of your own leadership style, and a personalised development plan to drive your growth now and in the future.
