This webinar aims to introduce you to key ideas and tools, clarifying flexibility and the benefits for developing flexibility in yourself, in others and in your organisations.
We will provide a taste for the modules in this programme, explaining their benefit as standalone modules, or grouped together to provide a coherent, holistic training package.
