Today’s organizations are undeniably complex—both difficult to understand and even more challenging to manage. But building your leadership skills from the inside out can help ensure you and your organization are positioned for growth and prepared to manage through change and uncertainty.

Just as an effective 360-degree evaluation can drive your success by assessing your skills and competencies from every angle, the Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership program presents three core pillars of leadership—personal leadership, team leadership and organizational leadership—for a holistic perspective that helps you develop your skills as a coach and team builder and step into the next level of leadership with confidence.
