In creating this program, we were thinking about all those women who wouldn't necessarily consider themselves a leader or who aren't in formal management positions. There are so many women, of all ages, from all kinds of backgrounds, for whom leadership isn't the direction they want to take. This course is for them, all of them.

DON'T SEE YOURSELF AS A LEADER? WE'VE CREATED THIS COURSE FOR YOU
Behavioural and interpersonal skills are at the very heart of our everyday lives and form the basis of how we understand ourselves, how we interpret our experiences and the impact that we have on others. We understand that it’s not every woman’s desire to be a leader or manager in the traditional sense; but experience teaches us that these core capabilities, that are fundamental to leadership, are actually vital regardless of your role or responsibility level.
The IMPACT program will help you develop these essential capabilities so that, regardless of your situation, you too can feel confident and fulfilled in your role and achieve greater satisfaction in all aspects of life.
THIS COURSE IS FOR WOMEN OF ALL AGES FROM ALL KINDS OF INDUSTRIES WHO:
Are passionate and ambitious but not in formal leadership
Want to feel more confident and fulfilled in their role and beyond
Are seeking greater awareness of themselves and others
Are ready to invest in themselves and increase their impact
Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life; it will improve the lives of all those around you.
SO, WHAT IS THE IMPACT PROGRAM?
The course encompasses five core modules, delivered over a 10-week schedule and is designed to be achievable alongside a full-time role. Activities include interactive online workshops, expert video tutorials, self-directed learning materials and reflective practice exercises. The time commitment on average is 1 - 2 hours per week.
Self-directed learning content
All the information you need right at your fingertips. Course content, is accessible online 24/7, so you can dip in and out as you wish. Anyone who has previous experience using Facebook, Skype and Microsoft Word already has all the technology and skills needed to enjoy our online environment.
Interactive online workshops
Sharing and learning from each other. Focused on rich discussion and debate, the online workshops help to contextualise key themes within real world situations. Providing a space to reflect on your own experience and the experiences of others, the workshops will enable you to find meaningful connection with each key theme.
Supportive learning community
The support you need to thrive. A hallmark of our programs is the supportive and empowering nature of the relationships that are developed between participants. To this end, participants are encouraged to connect with each other via the online portal to share experiences and discuss ‘top of mind’ issues.
In this module participants will explore their own preferences and strengths and how these elements impact their behaviours and actions both in the workplace and beyond. The intersection of purpose, gifts and passions will also be explored.
In this module participants will explore their dominant style of communication and how the way they communicate impacts others. They will go on to examine the key interpersonal skills of empathy and connection.
In this module, participants will be challenged on their current perceptions towards conflict. Personal stress responses will be explored and participants will develop their capacity to engage in productive conflict.
CONSCIOUS DECISION MAKING
This module focuses on strategies to think critically, evaluate information successfully, and make timely and considered decisions. Participants will develop the critical behaviours of accountability, responsibility and ownership. Reflective practice strategies to support conscious decision making will also be explored.
MAXIMISING EFFORT AND ENERGY
In this module participants will explore effective and efficient ways to prioritise and manage their effort and energy. Participants will explore ways to improve their time management in order to reduce stress, doubt, guilt and panic, and find a more focused, purposeful and productive momentum. Participants will go on to examine the concept of resilience and explore their capacity to overcome setbacks.

I had the pleasure of completing a course with this company late last year. The course content was delivered in a logical sequence and directly related to my development. I met some amazing people with incredible stories, and had the great pleasure of growing with them. Highly recommended to any young woman looking to push themselves out of their comfort zone and get to know themselves better.

So incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the course by Women and Leadership Australia. It came at a time where I had been feeling I needed to grow my skills and knowledge to progress in my career, but I didn’t know where to start. I’ve gained so many skills and insights that are just so relevant and useful, personally and professionally. I feel like a different person than I was at the start, and I am so thankful.
