Success story

“This programme is probably one of the most practical learning experiences I’ve had in my career. We were guided through different leadership constructs, which challenge traditional views. I was surprised how much I could take immediately into my challenging real world and start applying even before the end of the programme – that’s the true test of its value.”

Keith Linforth | General Manager Customer Operations | Vocus Communications

“The Leadership Mindset programme has enabled my doctors to move beyond their well-honed ‘medical expert’ mindset. They are more creative and explore new ways of working – leading us to better meet the needs of those we serve.”

Willem Landman | Clinical Director | Emergency Department Waitemata DHB
