2018 Learning Groups Graduate
The task of leadership
is not to put greatness into people,
but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.
These leaders have spent the last six months together; learning, problem solving, sharing challenges and best practices and eliciting greatness from each other! Best of all, they are now part of a bigger network of like-minded people; a network of colleagues with a common purpose – to support each other’s leadership beyond the program.
