Moving ahead with my new venture

After completing the rigorous application process and subsequently finding out that I had been accepted into the Diploma of Organisational Leadership, the extent of what I had signed up for slowly started to sink in.

Tradition and Innovation: How the Two Can Coexist

“That’s how we do things around here”. “We’ve always done things this way”. I have heard these statements many times. There were times when it was okay to resist change. We don’t live in those times.
