    Through a facilitated combination of group discussions, pair discussions and personal reflection time participants will have the opportunity to pause and reflect on their own leadership practices, identifying strengths and areas that they think they may need to develop. As an outcome, participants may decide to administer the Rubric in their own organisation to help them understand their staffs’ perception of their leadership.
