Leadership in Practice
Leadership in Practice is LDC's highly-regarded nine-month development programme for leaders who have experience managing others, and who are ready to broaden their leadership impact and strategic influence across the system.

Leadership in Practice (LiP) is designed to help participants - who have been identified by their managers develop self-awareness and general leadership skills. The programme is ideal for progressing leadership development planning and learning how to put leadership knowledge into action.

LiP begins with a four-day residential workshop followed by nine months of action learning and one-on-one coaching.
