Who should attend

Experienced and up and coming leaders, who are ambitious and driven to build the skills required to face the future head on. You may be an individual contributor who is ready to step up to mid-level leadership, you may be on a fast track to a senior role, or an existing leader who is ready to tackle new challenges.

Organisations will benefit from fast tracked leaders who can deliver real value, solving live business challenges throughout the course experience and building a toolkit to lead through disruption.

About the course

Build transformational leadership skills to enable your organisation to flourish in times of disruption and change.

As we transition into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, leaders are being challenged to respond with agility and creativity as their industries undergo constant change. They must bring fresh perspectives, solve complex problems and learn to do more with less. Based on real world application over the three-month program journey, you will enhance key skills required to succeed as a leader and develop a roadmap for the future, realising your potential to become a true change agent and inspiring leader.

What you'll learn

Working alongside current and future leaders from diverse industry backgrounds, you will explore and respond to the challenges of leadership, creating a practical toolkit to:

  • Lead through disruption and apply adaptive leadership techniques to drive change
  • Solve problems creatively using Human Centred Design principles
  • Align organisational culture and strategy through your own leadership actions
  • Put people at the Centre of Change and lead with emotional intelligence
  • Ensure you and your organisation learn faster than the rate of change occurring in the external market
  • Influence a broad range of stakeholders – often without authority – aligning hearts and minds to new ways of doing things – quickly
  • Develop resilience and mental toughness in yourself and your team to deal with transformation
  • Find adaptive ways to contribute and benefit from their strategic relationships

How you'll learn

Prior to the course, you will work with your organisation and our team to identify two live leadership projects that will enable you to apply your learning to and deliver immediate value.

Over three months, you will take part in five face-to-face course days over two workshops, interspersed with live project work, coached and supported by our experienced team.
