Leadership Development

Our Leadership Development Model is designed to transform how you exercise leadership and approach problem-solving. We base our work on teaching best-practice leadership competencies and principles, but what makes us stand out is our unique approach of integrating storytelling and purpose.

Our ultimate aim is to create a strong holding environment that enables us to challenge participants to step outside of their comfort zones and accelerate their leadership development. Our approach is guided by heart, purpose, and ethics, and our focus is on disrupting the status quo to produce meaningful change and learning.

Drawing on fundamental research from the leadership development field and beyond, we consistently refresh our methodology and approach to ensure we apply contemporary thinking and best practices in all our programs. Our comprehensive programs cater to all levels of leadership and are delivered in various formats to suit different learning styles and preferences.

It has been the most engaging study I have done for 20 years – I have even thoroughly enjoyed the pre-reading. It has been interesting to get an awareness of broader social challenges and deepen my understanding of leadership.

The opportunity for self-reflection and recalibration has been worth its weight in gold. It has been a journey towards a deeper understanding of my own value system, and how authentic leadership can drive change. The program gave me an opportunity to understand the drivers of opposing and seemingly impossible positions and find common and constructive ground.

I’ve certainly grown as an individual and a leader thanks to LV…I can’t identify a single profound moment throughout the year, as each program gave so much – insight to the complexity of social issues, challenges facing the leaders trying to influence the agenda, and the unrelenting passion of those involved. Each experience left me richer.

I became aware of many complex and diverse thinking leaders within the LV program. As a result, a profound learning was my personal journey, increased self-awareness of biases and blind spots, and discovering the power of regular self-reflection. This has allowed my leadership style to shift benefiting me personally and at an enterprise level.

Leadership Victoria is an ever-present provocateur. Their team is always looking to create a level of discomfort, to challenge our world views, and to demonstrate how this can help develop better community leaders and positive change. Folio has really challenged me to with why I want to make a difference.
