We often hear that everyone is a leader, regardless of whether or not they have a formal title. So, what does that actually mean for individuals who don’t have direct reports but who want to demonstrate their commitment and leadership potential. This course explores the concept of a ‘leader-full’ organisation and moves on quickly to identify and develop the specific behaviours that will help people step forward and take a leadership position within their organisation.
