Purpose of this course

The course is for anyone who is keen to improve and understand the positive effect and dynamic they can add to a team.  By taking the time to go through simulations and self-assessments based upon leading management authorities, you will start to understand yourself and the contributions you can make to a team.  Reflecting upon this and your own professional circumstances is also key and where necessary you will be given individual attention to help you diagnose and learn about those aspects which are of particular personal significance to yourself.
