The Course Outline

Before you can lead others, you need to be able to lead yourself. After all, leadership is deeply personal. This concept of ‘leading yourself’ is often referred to as personal mastery or self-leadership.

Every great journey starts with one small step. Learn effective habits for leading in a digital age, and how behavioural design is key to your personal, team and organisational productivity.

In this module, you will be introduced to the concept of values-based leadership, and explore how your values as a founder are integral to finding the right business partner and hiring the right people for your team.

To successfully scale a team, people, strategy and execution must be carefully aligned. These are three of the most critical decisions a leader must make when growing their small business.
