Leadership &

For many leaders, fulfilling the day-to-day demands of their role is challenging enough – let alone finding the time to learn new skills. Despite time pressure, however, managers still need supportive training to help them develop as leaders and bring out the best in their people. In most cases, the best way to achieve this is with learning that’s quick, effective, and digestible on the move.

To help meet this need, Sponge offers a huge range of off-the-shelf and tailored skills-based learning on a wide variety of leadership subjects. From ready-to-go microlearning development courses to fully bespoke blended learning programmes, our content is easily accessible from any device, anytime.
