“One of the best things about the Leading High Performing Teams was the diverse range of perspectives to learn from. I enjoyed the academic theory but also gained practical insights from managers, CEOs and COOs. As a coach, I’m always looking at the bigger picture, and planning for my next role. This course, led to a few ‘aha!’ moments about why I succeeded in some jobs more than others as a leader.”
