Who is the course for and why did we write it?

This course was written for us as a course to live by. We then realised it has real impact in the Leadership sphere and keeping it to ourselves would have been selfish. In completing this course, you will regain access to the authentic you so that you can lead by inspiring, influencing and impacting your world by being who you were born to be.

It requires a desirable degree of difficulty, much like going to the gym does. This effort will be rewarded by dramatically altering the course of your life, who you are in your own eyes and the eyes of others.

Just remember, you are a work in progress… W.I.P
