This paper discusses my experiences after attending the Practice of Public Health Leadership (PPHL) subject in 2015, reflecting on important lessons learnt, the relevance to my work and the support required for my improvement.

It has enabled me to focus on the roles of a leader instead of striving to do everything myself as the case before.
