On 18th March, 2019, the third cohort of UONGOZI Institute’s Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership Programme embarked on a new journey by undertaking a personality assessment. Participants were assessed using DISC, a behaviour assessment tool which centres on four personality traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness.
The assessment offered specific insights into their interpersonal communication abilities. This helps identify how to maximise particular strengths to improve personal performance.
Launched in 2017, Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership Programme aims to develop leadership competencies with a focus on making strategic choices; leading people and other resources; and excelling in personal leadership qualities.
The programme, jointly delivered by UONGOZI Institute and Aalto University Executive Education of Finland, offers 10 modules, combining in-class workshops with online individual or group assignments.
The third cohort includes 35 senior leaders from public, private and civil society organisations within Tanzania. Participants began their first module on Reflective and Inspiration Leader on 09th April, 2019.
