Programme Details

Discover: Your Leadership Includes

Designed to fit around and complement your day-to-day work, the programme is structured over four weeks, with each week containing a practical and reflective task for you to complete before the end of the week. Tasks won’t be assessed, but completing them is strongly recommended to solidify learning. We recommend allocating around 2-4 hours a week on the course and interacting with your peers on the course as much as possible!

During the programme, there are two live seminars where you and your cohort will discuss the issues you’ve been working on.

The programme consists of four weeks of self-paced online learning:

  • Week One – Know Yourself, Be Yourself, Look After Yourself
  • Week Two – Assessing Context
  • Week Three – Working With and Through Others
  • Week Four – Take Action
