A critical component of the programme is to facilitate internalisation. Leading with authenticity can only be accomplished through self awareness and reflection.

The combination between face to face learning and self-study is throughout supported by facilitating communication channels. Slack is used to facilitate cross-cohort conversation and email is used to exchange learner input.
