Using a 'dilemma board' to discuss the challenges faced by leaders and managers, such as a lack of resources, time and pressure of deadlines, participants collectively discovered strategies to use to overcome these hurdles.
As part of this 11 week course, online tutorials will be held to support learning and give participants access to further information. This will enhance their understanding of the role of leaders and managers in organisations and how organisations need to step up to the challenge of change and take risks.
"A huge benefit from the course is being in a group environment and listening to the thoughts and experiences of other managers and other organisations. It is really useful to hear some of the techniques used in other companies and also reassuring to find that many of the challenges I face as a manager and leader are experienced by other people on the course."
Scott Kennerley, Consumer Council
