Develop your strategic leadership.

‘As the practice of design continues to evolve, so must the skills of a leader’ John Maeda.

Many of us either don the mantle of leader or have it thrust unwillingly upon our shoulders. Our Strategic Leadership Programme will take you on a fast track to more effective leadership, through six interactive workshops that provide practical tools and techniques that are immediately implementable to become more effective. The programme includes a DISC profile assessment and one-to-one coaching session that will give you an insight into your own leadership style, and the skills and tools to hone it for success.
