This training is designed to provide you with both the skills and the tools to become a better leader, manager, and collaborator. It helps if you already have leadership experience, but it is not required. However this training is more than a just a set of scientifically proven models, it is a leadership trajectory, where we will start with a 2 day deep dive, followed with 3 half day reconnects, each set about 2 weeks apart, to enable you to start implementing the training in practice. There will be substantial pre-work and homework. So if you hope to follow this training to tick a box, it might not be for you. If you however want to start growing as a leader of others and are not afraid of working hard and learning a lot, this training will give you science, practice, and experience.
