Leadership Victoria's unique development programs draw on the best leadership development research and practice from around the world.

Our programs help you and your team/organisation:

  • Become a more experienced leader
  • Learn how to lead with and without authority
  • Create value for your organisation to make it a better world
  • Support the broader role of your business and its impact
  • Build strong networks across sectors and industries
  • Gain a wise and well-balanced perspective for exceptional leadership
  • Build the knowledge to make big picture decisions, with real-world impact
  • Develop the tools, drive and mindset for organisational and personal success
  • Create connections with others to ensure the right people and partners are there to make it happen
  • Use all of this to imagine a better world through an holistic approach to exceptional leadership

Why do our graduates consistently describe our leadership programs as "life-changing", "transformational" and the best professional development they have undertaken?

Because not only do our unique development programs draw on the best leadership development research and practice from around the world; they also include both horizontal (technical skill development) and vertical development (increasing the capacity to learn) opportunities and activities. Vertical learning and acquired diversity occur through exposure to new and diverse experiences, people and ideas.

This combination of a rigorous leadership framework, specialist facilitation team, access to an extensive range of diverse guest speakers, interactive and engaging adult learning techniques, self-reflection and peer support, provide a unique development experience with enduring impact.
