Total Leadership: Improving performance by creating mutual value among all four domains of life – work, home, community and self

Most leadership programmes focus on the development of leaders in their current or future jobs, while most wellness or work/life programmes focus mainly on improving wellbeing.

Total Leadership takes a holistic view, in which the purpose is to improve performance in all four domains of life – work, home, community and self – by finding mutual value among them. This two-day workshop will explore how this approach can drive measurable results for individuals and organisations.
