Quotes from previous participants
‘The feedback I had after leading my task was exceptional and I have a very good idea now of what I do well on and what I need to work on.'
‘Where to start? - it was challenging, demanding, thought provoking, informative.'
‘A lot of the themes that were included in the idea of leadership I might do already, but didn't relate them to leadership - and doing so makes these themes more relevant.'
‘Opened my eyes to the possibility to use very different styles of leadership'
‘I developed support links which will likely continue afterwards'
