About the course

Prepare to advance into leadership with our Maximising Your Leadership Potential program.

Designed by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)®, this program helps you transition into management by identifying and developing your leadership style, then addressing related challenges so you can move forward, effectively. You’ll also learn new strategies to influence your organisation, while building skills in conflict resolution, targeted communication and giving feedback. You’ll gain a solid grip on your own leadership style and an array of tactics for getting the best out of others.
