This course is aimed at developing the leadership skills of any governing body member, not just the office bearers or those aspiring to these roles.  If you are a governing body member wishing to develop your leadership skills and improve your understanding of the scope and limits of your role, then this is the course is for you.

The sessions are being held over six afternoon sessions and will explore how you can successfully expand your skills in a flexible way and use these to promote improvement within yourself and your organisation.  It features leading edge thinking that can dramatically develop your relationships with others, whilst building your confidence and ability to challenge effectively.  The course tackles this over several separate areas, including:

Operation v Strategy
Stewardship delegation
