Leadership Development: Overview

Our Approach

CAN’s leadership development programme aims to ignite passion, belief, vision, courage and ability in people to be the best leaders they can be. We create a learning group which facilitates personal learning, peer support and collective solidarity. The starting point is to build on the lived experience of participants as leaders, which they can take away after the learning group finishes.

Having an empowered, just and equal society requires building leadership within communities, individuals and organisations. To this end, we design and deliver a suite of leadership programmes and processes for people across all sectors. In addition, CAN offers coaching, mentoring and partnering.
