Why we need to lead across boundaries

Organisations need leadership programs that help build an ‘Our Way’ for collaboration and participation across functions and geographies, often in support of its leadership model and values.

Influencing Across Boundaries is just such a program, facilitated by TCO in a number of our client companies, bringing together managers with a common interest in learning about how to integrate people, and build real inclusion in a diverse and changing world.
