ONLINE COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE

Leadership and Authenticity​

Participants explore what it takes to be an effective leader using a strengths-based approach. This module introduces participants to a values-based leadership framework as they take a deep dive into the relationship between authenticity and effective leadership.

TEAM DYNAMICS

During this module participants explore the practical implications of managing diverse and challenging groups. Participants examine the qualities shared by high performing teams and identify effective strategies to foster cultures that support optimal teamwork.

As leaders assume more responsibility, the problems they solve become more complex and less able to be resolved by simple, technical solutions. The ability to properly identify problems, analyse them and make sound decisions becomes increasingly important. Participants will learn how the framing of a problem affects the analysis and decisions that stem from it. They will learn how their cognitive and emotional abilities work together to inform how they think, what information they pay attention to and how they make decisions. Participants will learn how to match decision making styles to the needs of the problem so that they can achieve commitment from those who must enact the solutions.

Problem Solving and Decision Making

LEADING INNOVATION AND CHANGE

This module focuses on the leadership skills involved in driving innovation and change. Participants critically discuss the application of relevant theory and explore the way in which innovation and change are inextricably intertwined. Participants then examine leadership challenges during times of crisis, gaining an understanding of the way in which leaders can build an agile and resilient organisation. They will also learn how to engage others in change, deal with resistance and manage stakeholders so that they can achieve their own change initiatives.

Communication, Presence and Influence

This module commences with an exploration of one’s own preferred style of communication and the impact of one’s style on others. The module moves on to focus on effective communication and influencing at an interpersonal, departmental, and organisational level.

Purpose, Priorities and Professional Development

This module focuses on developing skills to hone a competitive edge. Participants will learn to develop effective work goals and behaviours to competently manage work priorities. They will also explore the critical elements of establishing personal work objectives, prioritising workload for optimum achievement and building on professional competence.

Driving Performance

This module supports participants to provide feedback and motivate their team to exceed performance expectations. Participants identify key principles of performance management in order to ensure consistency with organisational objectives. This module also explores techniques involved in coaching others and building individual capability.
