I had the opportunity to reflect on my own leadership skills. Got a better understanding of my role as a leader. This course enlightened me on how to put theory into practice. I have now had the opportunity to reflect on my practice as a leader. I have enjoyed this part of the course and learnt a lot. Thank you.

The conscious ability and self-awareness that we are all leaders in our own right, and we all have the ability to be leaders in the future. Having more self-belief and confidence that I do possess leadership qualities and how I can foster these and apply them to my life and work.
