Leadership in action programme


Well established managers can find it particularly difficult to step into a more leadership focused role as required by the organisation. The well-established habits, behaviours and ways of working that have served a manager well to date, can greatly hinder an individual’s ability to go to the next level of management performance as their behaviours and decision making become more critical.
