The Leadership Challenge

Stimulating, challenging and relevant, scenarios are short descriptions of real-world situations encountered by managers and leaders. Scenarios excel at describing dilemmas, decisions and issues with a range of possible options, testing an individual’s instincts and confidence as much as their skills and expertise.

A unique way to personalise learning, provide developmental feedback, assess capability, and measure the impact of development initiatives.

Assess an individual’s leadership competence, understanding, and – crucially – their level of confidence
