Wild leadership

What skills make a good leader? Are they unique to humans? Wild Leadership is a unique workshop that delves into the team work and leadership styles of wild animals and explores how we, as humans, have evolved over time.

In this workshop you will explore the behaviour and leadership styles of wild animals and how they apply to human dimensions of leadership.
