We’d like to update you on the changes Leadership Victoria is putting in place to help keep our participants, clients, staff and broader community safe as we face COVID-19.
While we are all dealing with the immediate disruption at the moment, LV is positive about the future. We will get through this as a community and we will learn more about our leadership and what we are capable of.
Like all Australians, we are closely monitoring the unfolding impacts of COVID-19 and are following advice and government directions as they evolve so that we do all we can to keep our community safe.
We are all having to adapt to a rapidly changing situation, and in order to protect the health and safety of our community, LV is changing its program delivery model to minimise face to face interactions over the next three months until 30 June 2020. With the situation evolving rapidly, please be assured that we will keep you updated of any changes.
This as an opportunity for us all to develop and refine the leadership skills required to meet very real life challenge of leading virtual, dispersed teams!
Programs currently in progress: face to face facilitation and events will be suspended until 30 June 2020 at least, to comply with government guidelines and to keep us all safe. We are working closely with our clients to ensure continued delivery of our leadership development programs through a combination of the following:
- Rescheduling experiential components to a later date
- Delivering programs in a virtual format over the next three months at least, and possibly longer depending on advice and how the situation evolves.
The Williamson Leadership Program is continuing in a virtual format until at least 30 June 2020 with experiential components being rescheduled to the latter half of this year. All participants have been provided details of the revised arrangements. Last Friday we were delighted to successfully deliver the belonging theme day virtually to the 2020 Williamson cohort where we heard from an array of wonderful guest speakers. Thank you everyone for your flexibility, pulling together and showing the strength of our connectivity.
Open enrolment programs: We are working to enable virtual delivery of our open enrolment programs scheduled to take place in April, May and June. We are aiming, as far as possible, to retain the scheduled dates and will notify all registered participants in the following programs, should this change:
- LeaderEvolution Series 1 scheduled dates 28 April – 5 May 2020
- Developing Self, Leading Others Series 1 scheduled dates 4 May – 17 June
- Igniting Leadership Program Series 1 scheduled dates 7 May – 4 June 2020
Please note these programs, and the programs scheduled for later in the year, remain open for expressions of interest and we will continue to provide updates on scheduling and delivery format as the situation progresses. To enquire about LV programs, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
LV team operating virtually: Team members will continue to be available via their individual email and mobile phone numbers, and for teleconference meetings.
Looking towards the future: We intend to keep the conversation going with you – especially as we face new challenges of social distancing and working in different ways. This is a time to support each other and to truly lead anytime and anywhere. We will keep in touch with you via our social media channels, newsletter and website.
