This is an integrated programme that spans several months and comprises a number of components.

  1. Participants will take part in a series of experiential workshops with a few weeks between each. The workshops include tools and exercises aimed at developing leadership behaviours and management skills. They are supported by diagnostic instruments that provide individual feedback for participants to factor into their learning and development planning.
  2. Participants are supported between workshops by individual coaching to ensure workplace enactment of new leadership behaviours. This can be provided by internal coaches or one of our specialist coaches.
  3. Prior to commencement, participants undergo a 360o review against the operational level behaviours on our Leadership Competencies Framework (or their organisation's framework) to identify their leadership strengths and improvement opportunities.
  4. During each workshop participants will use a Workplace Application Tool to plan the application of new learning back at work. This ensures that they transfer workshop knowledge into workplace practice.
  5. Active support from participants' workplace manager is encouraged. This may take the form of attendance at part of the orientation day and one or more of the coaching sessions so they are able to support their staff member at work to apply new learning and to enact new leadership behaviours.
