About the Leadership Mindset Programme

Programme Overview

Dr Fiona Kennedy, NZLI senior leadership facilitator speaks about the Leadership Mindset Programme

The Leadership Mindset Programme builds new learning and capabilities to help you step up in your organisation.

Who participates in the Leadership Mindset Programme?

  • Mid-career managers and professionals leading teams, projects or working across networks

How do organisations benefit from their managers participation?

Organisations will have managers and team leaders who:
