2018 Start Leading

An investment in yourself is an investment in your business

Start Leading is a new tailored leadership development program for start-up founders, first hires and managers.

Start Leading is a focused leadership development intensive for 25 start-up founders. This innovative program aims to shape participants into leaders for the long haul - for themselves, their current and future projects and for the wider community. The program is fully subsidised (no program fees payable by participants).

The program includes five intensive days (spread over a number of months), covering:

  • key leadership principles
  • the challenges facing start-ups, including sessions with key industry leaders
  • skills sessions
  • coaching and mentoring
  • space to put your learnings into practice between sessions

Coaching and mentoring
 run in parallel with the program. Timing of these sessions will be determined with participants at the start of the program. (Note, mentoring will continue post-program).

Skills builder sessions are shorter ‘how to’ sessions (up to half a day). Think deep-dives into more technical skills, such as presenting to investors, hiring staff, evaluation techniques (setting goals, tracking performance, impact measurement) and other leadership-related topics.


Free Public Events

In addition to the Start Leading intensive, public events will also be held for the broader start-up community. All are welcome to attend.

Each event will focus on a key leadership theme.

The next event will be held on 2 April. Event and registration details will be announced shortly.
