Audacious Leadership

Audacious Leadership is an adventure-based unit in leadership that will challenge your habits of perception and reaction, allowing you to gain insight into your own leadership, its strengths to be built on, and its weaknesses to be made sound.

'And I thought I'd signed up for a fun sailing trip! My real adventure was to journey into self discovery and in particular my leadership and behaviour styles under stress. A superb unit which became far more rewarding in the months that followed its completion.'

Paul Allen, January 2011
