Developing Leadership Capabilities (DLC) is a programme for anyone interested in knowing themselves deeply and understanding how this affects the way they show up to others.

The programme challenges long-held views on Leadership as it provides an alternative in Virtuous Leadership.

The participants will discover their potential and talents through a personality assessment and apply this knowledge throughout the programme in different functions of leadership. Leadership is not a preserve of the few but for all regardless of where they are in life and even when they don’t hold any positions or titles.
