This two to four day program will help existing and emerging leaders meet the challenges of modern workplaces with focus, energy and compassion.

Building Modern Leadership Practice uses modern values and techniques to embed a transformational style of leadership in all business activities. Leaders will make a difference by motivating others to grow, creating a safe and supportive workplace culture, and modelling a self-aware approach to personal development. Building Modern Leadership Practice is designed to help bridge the gap between traditional and modern leadership styles, help leaders find authenticity in their work, and embed a people-first approach to workplace culture.
