Leadership Courses Melbourne


What makes a leader? What sort of leader are you? How to lead? When to be democratic and when to be authoritarian? These and other questions can be answered in a workshop led by Direct Speech.
You will gain experience in simulated situations and be asked to think on your feet.

You will get feedback and learn about your leadership style from peers and Judith Field.

As part of her public speaking workshops, Field has developed some practical scenarios to apply to leadership in schools and in the work place.
