    • You are a new manager, supervisor or team leader
    • … or you hope to be
    • You have some experience, but need a refresher and some new tools
    • If you know you are good at your technical or functional role, but fear you have not had enough training in the craft of leadership
    • If you hope to succeed in leadership and want to make a rapid start
    • … and if you are unlikely to get all the support and advice that you want from your colleagues and your organization.
