2019 Igniting Leadership Program

About the program

Igniting Leadership is your catalyst to explore the essentials of leadership; and gain the insights, critical skills, strategies and confidence to move from team member to effective leader for improved personal, team and organisational performance.

Consciously choosing to pay attention to what is right with self and others, rather than what is wrong makes us feel better, is more motivating, more productive and achieves better outcomes. Igniting Leadership takes a strengths based approach helping participants to tap into their talents and to gain insights into how they can maximise their potential.

This five-day program explores the essentials of leadership and what it means to be an effective leader in today’s world. Drawing on the experience of our expert facilitator, a range of dynamic guest speakers and a diverse group of peers in the room, you will examine:

  • Leadership: Broaden your understanding of modern leadership concepts, the purpose of leadership, distinguishing authority from leadership, key emotional attributes of leadership and the nature of constructed reality
  • Values and Motivation: Learn how to engage, motivate and lead teams effectively
  • Change: Identify drivers and barriers to change, change management techniques and how to strengthen change initiatives for success
  • Strategy: take a systems perspective; develop techniques to adapt, influence and drive strategy
  • Communication: understand the basis of effective communication; improve your communication skills and ability to influence and motivate others; build your awareness of workplace relationships and learn how to identify and channel strengths of individuals and teams
  • Networks: Understand the value of, and how to build, strategic professional networks
  • Participants will be introduced to a peer case consultation process in which they will have the opportunity to practice, in a controlled setting, the ideas being explored in your program, and to gain feedback from their program peers about a leadership challenge that is important to them.

  • Emerging or recently appointed team leaders, managers and supervisors
