Who should attend

Middle-to-senior level female managers in the public sector, who have opportunities to influence peers, seniors and public sector clients (you don’t need to have direct reports to get value from this program)

About the course

Looking outside traditional leadership models, Dr Christine Nixon and Professor Amanda Sinclair aim to empower women to be role models for humane and people-centred leadership.

Recent and radical changes in the context for work mean that the challenges for delivering value in the public sector have changed. People are looking to women to deliver new and caring models of leadership and management.

In this program designed specifically to strengthen women’s leadership, you will learn how to initiate change and mobilise others while also building cultures of care; how to manage diverse teams working in dispersed ways; and how to look after yourself and others in the process.

This collaborative and experiential workshop with two highly experienced leaders and teachers as guides, aims to expand your approaches to influencing and mobilising people, and equip you with practical strategies for responding to leadership challenges. While developing effectiveness and broadening your leadership repertoire, you will also enjoy stimulating discussion, sharing and learning from a cohort of likeminded public servants, and opening doors for lifelong connections. 

What will you learn?

Dr Nixon and Professor Sinclair will guide participants through the broad strategic levels of leadership and mobilising organisations, to managing groups, concluding with how to thrive and feel fulfilled in leadership roles.
