In this new masterclass, we will turn the lens on ourselves as individual leaders, combining insight from psychometric tools with facilitated discussion, introspection and reflection.

This highly interactive full day masterclass will require completion of the MBTI® assessment prior to the course, following on from which we will help you interpret your personal preferences profile, to support you in turning this insight into personal leadership effectiveness.
