What: Learning to Lead
"The most valuable lessons I learned on this course were around giving feedback to junior staff. To prepare in advance so I know know what I will say, focus on the individual, not the firm, explore areas such as ability, resources, motivations and direction to try and work out how we can help junior staff to improve. And, most importantly, to listen.
It was also great to explore Singapore. Terrific food and sights, but most impressive was its dynamism. It only takes a few days in Singapore to realise that our future lies with Asia."
