NEW - Introducing Clore Leadership Pulse

Leadership Pulse is a dynamic modular course for those seeking to sharpen their skills and knowledge in order to face head-on the challenges of 21st Century leadership.    Grounded in experiential learning and rich with real-life examples shared by experts from across the cultural and corporate sectors, Leadership Pulse provides essential professional and personal development for cultural leaders today.  

In response to feedback from previous participants and employers from across the sector, this newly designed course will span a three-month period, giving participants time to reflect on their learning and practise new skills over an extended period of time. 

Leadership Pulse consists of three four-day residential workshops with Virtual Action Learning and coaching between modules to give participants the opportunity to continue conversations and work through individual and collective challenges.
