In this section we invite you to read the research, theories and concepts underpinning the Big 8, and what these tell us about our leadership foundations.
We recognise that some people will really enjoy and get a lot out of engaging with this in advance of the workshops and some may prefer to attend the workshops and come back to this later. This stage is therefore optional and you are welcome to revisit this at a later date.
