Leadership Track will measure the ‘soft skills’ KPIs alongside the ‘hard’ KPIs and track over time.

- Increased openness to personal learning and development.
- Increased ability to identify solutions to specific work-related issues.
- Greater ownership and responsibility.
- Development of self-awareness.
