About the course

Bolster your ability to lead across different teams, managers and roles with our Leadership Development Program.

If you are a mid-to-senior-level manager—a leader of managers—you lead in what the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)® calls ‘the middle zone’. This program gives you the skills needed to effectively bridge, manage and motivate employees from various departments – turning strategy into action. It will also help you identify opportunities for improvement as you build the confidence and resilience required to lead in this ‘middle zone’.

This program was designed by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)®, a global, top-10, executive education provider, ranked by the Financial Times (2002–2016). Melbourne Business School holds the only Australian partnership with CCL to deliver CCL leadership programs.

By the end of the program, you will be able to:

  • Develop the leadership fundamentals of communication, self-awareness, influence and learning agility
  • Bridge levels and functions
  • Build resilience in yourself and others
  • Think and act systemically
  • Convert strategy into action
  • Leverage your leadership experience
