Training course overview

Breakthrough leadership differs from simply leading a team, department or division. It implies breaking through barriers, gaining new ground and pushing the envelope of what’s possible in a bold and innovative manner. At the same time, breakthrough leaders are acutely aware that they cannot ‘win big’ on their own - they know it takes capable, highly motivated employees who are enabled to deliver extraordinary results. 

This intensive, 5-day training course is aimed at individuals with the ambition to become true breakthrough leaders. The programme is designed to challenge participants and take them out of their comfort zones, and it offers them the opportunity to profoundly re-calibrate their approach to leading others.

  • Assessing your own unique leadership psychology
