The leadership program for educators

that develops role model leaders

2 day in-person program – Melbourne – 6 & 7 September 2021

1. Do you know the impact you have on others and is it the impact you want?

2. Are you communicating effectively, using language that positively influences rather than controls?

3. Do you think as the leader you need to have all the answers so you can advise others what to do?

4. Have you mapped what you want from yourself and from your team, so you lead with a vision and leave a legacy?

These are the challenges for many leaders who have not defined the way they want to lead, often too busy in the day-to-day to step back and map out their plan, their leadership style and their priorities.

Here is the program that will help you do that, across 2 days of intensive leadership development, self-exploration and coaching to become a role model leader.
