Set to be launched in the first quarter of 2023, the ten tier programme on Value-Based Leadership addresses itself to the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors. The envisioned training will provide essential value-based leadership skills to staff of international, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations; diplomats; government officials; and private sector professionals to create awareness on Values-Based-Leadership so that it can reflect into their policies and procedures, initiatives and engagements with core value connectors.
