About the Programme

What does it take to be a successful leader? Are leaders born or can you develop leadership? Do leaders have to be strong and heroic or do different situations call for different type of behavior and personality? How effective is the leadership function and leadership development in your organization? What skills do you have and what skills do you need to acquire to become a better leader yourself? 

These and other questions are addressed by the Leadership Development Programme, founded in 2012.
