PHLP is funded by the Ministry of Health. This includes tuition, programme resources, 360-degree feedback, personal leadership profile, four one-on-one coaching sessions, development of a personal leadership plan and access to a continuing support network of PHLP graduates. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided on each course day.

Participants are expected to cover their own accommodation, travel, breakfast and evening meal costs.

Time commitment

We are often asked how much time needs to be set aside to complete the Programme. A general guideline would be to allow at least two days to complete pre-work requirements prior to the first workshop. You must attend full workshop days (two days x three workshops). Allow around 4–8 hours between workshops for coaching sessions, Leaderlabs and prework/readings.
