This course was an excellent opportunity to test my experiences against
leadership theories and frameworks. Creating an environment in which people
feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves is your
responsibility as a leader. But before we stand out we should be clear on what
we stand for!" Tandy Nicole Matikiti from Govan Community Project, Code
