This was life changing. I have learned more about myself, conquered fear, and have deeper more constructive ideas and expectations around leadership. ●
I have been encouraged and inspired around collaboration, that leadership is teamwork. ●
The timing was really helpful - I have real issues to deal with. ●
I had a thought provoking/invoking experience. The social learning aspect was brilliant.
This would be really helpful for all the co-ordinators in my team, but also for whole teams. ●
I would and will recommend this to anyone, but particularly those in roles with complex expectations on them. ●
