Leading Change in Turbulent Times

The programme comprises 4 x 150 minute interactive workshops.

  • Leading others though change

Recognising the role of emotions in change. Knowing what drives you as a leader and what drives those around you.

  • Working with power and politics.

Understanding who to influence and how to do it. Developing important influencing skills and understanding how to flex your style.
