The New Leader

The New Leader

The New Leader program provides participants a clear understanding of the core elements of successful leadership.

Covering key areas such as teams, communication, personal and leadership styles, change management and resilience, participants will gain a deeper understanding of these themes and leave with fresh insights and practical skills and tools they can apply directly in the workplace.

Importantly, participants will have an opportunity to examine their own leadership ‘state of play’ and plan for future success.

The New Leader also provides a unique opportunity to meet and work with people in similar roles across a diverse range of organisations.
