What is the programme?

Discover the key leadership skills required for cultural leadership and map your future leadership journey with our four-week online introductory course.

The Discover: Your Leadership Programme is a great first step or refresh for anyone working in a cultural sector organisation who is looking to develop themselves as leaders in order to transform their organisations, communities and the world around them.

The Discover programme proved to be a really useful focus for me at my career cross-roads. It helped me to focus on my end goal, my purpose, and how I might get there. This has been extremely useful and motivating for me!
