  • Identify and grow personal leadership with C-Suite and Board to grow a strong effective team to execute and implement step changes arising from the Growth Plan;
  • Understand the behaviours required to operate a culture of coaching / learning for continuous transformation and employee engagement.

The Programme comprises of three overseas week-long residential modules which cover:
