About the course

Step up to the challenge of management and leadership.

Stepping up to a management role requires a new skillset. The Emerging Manager Program takes you from technical expert to compelling leader ready to motivate and inspire team culture and performance.

What you'll learn

This intensive course will accelerate your capability and prepare you to step up to the challenge of leadership. You’ll build a management toolkit and return to work with the confidence to:

  • Align organisational vision, values and strategy with team goals, actions and performance management systems
  • Coach and mentor team members
  • Identify and initiate opportunities for growth, change and innovation
  • Embrace diversity and build a collaborative team culture
  • Adapt your leadership style to situation and context
  • Understand ethics and integrity and better balance personal and business needs
  • Successfully implement your personal action plan

How you’ll learn

This intensive, residential course takes you on a journey from functional or technical expert to compelling leader. Through a blend of group activity, coaching and expert presentations you will be challenged to become a stronger manager and leader. Taking place over four days, you will stay at our residential conference facilities in Sydney’s eastern suburbs (accommodation and catering is included in your program fee.)

Working with your peers and the course team, you will use your 360 feedback results to create a development plan, supported by clear goals, feedback mechanisms and a post-program coaching session.

You will return to work with increased competence, confidence and a toolkit to kick start your management career.
