The focus of this course is on developing leadership capability in oneself and in others. The core premise is that leadership is a learnable set of practices that can be deciphered, understood and incorporated. Leadership is not reserved for the very few, nor is it based on a particular gene or on being born into the right family circle. Developing leadership potential is about acquiring proficiencies in key areas that leverage pre-existing skills and expertise. It is about raising personal awareness, developing personal understanding, and learning new ways to do things at work. Leadership is about change mastery—and the first steps begin with challenging and changing the learner’s own perceptions.
