This programme is not about describing what it takes to be a great leader but about the crucial, practical, unique steps each participant should take to get there. Each participant is given their own specific steps to actualize their own unique leadership style in a 24-week support programme that presents unique leadership pathways to the different individuals on the programme according to their needs.
