I absolutely loved this program. I strongly recommend it. When you are in transitions, it’s important to focus, make a plan and move forward. TBL really helps you to do this.

You focus on building key influence skills such as negotiation and communication and lay the foundations to successfully lead change in your organization.

This general management program is very active and participative. You get lots of ideas and frameworks but the experience is much more than classroom-based teaching.
