What Students Are Saying5 votes
The online Learning to Lead sessions have been really helpful this year to form connections and learn about my own style of leadership. I enjoyed the workshops on conflict. I will definitely be using the knowledge on behaviour style, and using it to find my strengths and weakness so that I can be a valuable part of the team.
