Executive Leadership Program - McKinsey Academy (2020)

I have been extremely humbled to have received a sponsorship to pursue the Executive Leadership Program (ELP) with McKinsey Academy. The ELP has armed me with new skills, gained through the diverse course content and global quality of the facilitators. This has helped me to consider my role as a servant leader and more so as a fellow human being when dealing with my colleagues and others. This renewed sense of self-awareness is helping me gain greater insights as a person and to fused these elements into a more sustainable organisation where each staff member can realise their potential and contribute to the overall strategy of a sustainable NFP organisation. The ELP has also generated a wonderful network of high calibre leaders who, have in their DNA not only a sense of purpose but a willingness to share experiences and their journey. The course has been a truly inspiring opportunity in spite of not having physical contact with the participants and engaging through Zoom (I believe, this in a first!). I have no hesitation in recommending this course to leaders who want to make a difference.
