We are delighted to be your instructors for this course and really hope you enjoy working with us as we learn more about how knowing, loving and inspiring people enables flourishing, joy and fulfilment, particularly in difficult times.

We have loved working together to create this course and we really hope you gain plenty of ideas and tools to use as you lead. We believe anyone can lead whatever their age, role or position and we hope that this course will show you that leadership is about having a positive impact on people and the world, and is accessed through love.
