Week 1 (Wednesday 6 May 12pm–1pm)
What is Leadership? Is leadership about position, authority and status or is there an essential task to be done? This first session looks at this question.

This session looks at teams and what makes a great team.

Week 3 (Wednesday 20 May 12pm–1pm) 
This session shares some practical tools and techniques on how a leader can work effectively.

Week 4 (Wednesday 27 May 12pm–1pm)
