This workshop was a rare opportunity … It challenged us at the root of our work, encouraging us not to accept what anyone would think is already quite an achievement, but go for the best, reach the very top… Thank you to the organizers of this workshop which opened for me a door to a promising land of change, improvement and self-development.”

Emmanuel Gignac, Chief of Mission, UNHCR Libya


In the training what I learned or what really helped me was the understanding about leadership that we got, the fine tuning of skills of a leader, how to get the best out of colleagues and people, the main pillars on which a leadership is built and that a leader’s best is the humbleness. To make a team, a winning team, rather for me not a winning but the BEST team.
I have and am applying this, getting tremendous results and have boldly indulged into unchartered waters and people have and are responding to me, creating a very conducive atmosphere for growth and delivery. Thanks to that leadership training.”
