What will I learn?
You will be able to adapt different leadership styles, to utilize the abilities of successful leadership, to employ basic influencing skills, and to create an action plan.
How should I prepare?
Think about your current position in your family, workplace, or community and how you may already be a leader although you don’t see yourself that way. Consider some of the aspects of leading you find challenging or daunting and how the leaders you admire face these. Have a notebook and pen nearby if you’re on who likes to take notes.
