The Work Foundation seeks to develop practical applications to its ground breaking and innovative research. The influential report Exceeding Expectation: The principles of outstanding leadership and the follow up report which examined the practical applications of outstanding leadership Learning and Living the Principles of Outstanding Leadership provided the foundations from which the prestigious Towards Outstanding Leadership programme developed.
