* direct your career and help you keep your eye on your goals

* uncover gaps in your skills and capabilities

* open up further development needs

* provide examples and scenarios for a CV or interview

* demonstrate your professional standing to clients and employers

* help you with your career development or a possible career change

* prove your commitment to developing yourself professionally.

Just being a good manager is not enough these days

Let’s be honest, most of us leaders and managers are in our positions because we have proven our technical ability whether it is being an engineer, a teacher or a nurse. To be in these roles we will have achieved an accredited qualification e.g. Post Grad Diploma in Education or a Degree in Nursing, but what about our leadership and management role? How can we evidence that our leadership and management knowledge and ability is current? What learning have we conducted within Leadership and Management  issues? How can we evidence our commitment to our own personal development? In this fierce competitive market just being a good leader is not enough, so if you want that promotion and enhance your career, then read on. You have found the solution.
