Board members and faculty Bridget Farrands and Paul Rookwood describe Leadership in the 21st Century

“Leadership in the 21st Century has been
a revelation to me. It is a life-changing
experience, really. What I like about the program is that whereas it talks to leadership, it is not only confined to business - it is leadership in all the facets of life - your family, your friends, your peers. For business I think it was amazing, it was over-whelming. The learning I got from the program is that the world is so full of possibilities. The way we look at the world limits us. We think there is a specific way of addressing things and that is the only way. This program brings some inspiration to say don’t limit yourself — think and consolidate on the positives. Negatives will always be there in any process, but don’t focus your attention on the negative, focus on the positive so that very little of your energy goes to the negative. For me that was powerful learning.”
