The seven day CLD / Workplace Leadership Course equips you to be a more effective leader.

This program is different than any other leadership course. The content is not the usual content. Almost every topic has learning that is unique to this program. Come ready for new ideas that may challenge your conceptions of leadership.

The approach is different, too. At this no-nonsense course, participation is always welcome, but never required. You will experience an informal atmosphere where leadership is discussed in a practical way that relates to the real world. You can sit back and take it in, or ask questions or comment as much as you want.

One thing that is certain – you will come out with a greater understanding of how to lead others. That is guaranteed.

Prepare yourself to lead successfully with the QNET Certificate in Leadership Development!

Included Courses

By far the best course I have ever attended.

Excellent course. Easily the most useful and applicable leadership and management course I have ever taken.

It was great! It challenged me to look at things from a different perspective.

If I only took one day it was worth the price of the whole course.
