Find out more about our approach to learning and what horizontal and vertical leadership can mean for you.
Vertical development is inside-out learning and involves a quite different process – based on reflection, awareness-raising and personal insight. A number of life experiences and developmental processes accelerate vertical growth. Courage and Spark© has been one of those for an ever increasing number of people.
Interest in horizontal and vertical development has brought attention to the proposition that most management development processes, and learning in general, has been based on the premise that if we equip people with knowledge, new skills, and behaviours, those will translate into improved competency and performance
The transformative nature of this learning experience lies in the refinement of its design, content and approach, combined with the skill, expertise and experience of the course facilitators. Our unique methodology has been honed over many years of delivering leadership and professional development learning experiences
