An eye opener for me as someone who has been in leadership roles using mostly experience but without real leadership training.


I have come out with a more refined mindset on my approach to leadership and management.


A wonderful course! I learned a lot about leadership. I think it is a must-take course for those who are interested in ad value to their management skills!


Thoroughly enjoyed my Management and Leadership learning with Shaw Academy and am continuing my education. I’ve also introduced my children to Shaw Academy.


Wonderful! I was skeptical when I signed up and now I am so glad I took the class!
