Leadership Development Program

Every organisation needs a leadership development program tailored to their needs.

All organisations, whether local government or other, will benefit from a structured leadership development program for their emerging and growing leaders.
In addition to the individual learning and growth that results, the organisation benefits tangibly from the higher skill levels, cross functional co-operation, teamwork and productivity that develops from an extended program where the participants are all working together and sharing the learning experience.
Take advantage of our experience in working with a wide range of people and organisations, using core material based on sound and proven principles, enhanced by tailoring the program to meet the specific needs of your people, your organisation and your culture.

What are the content and outcomes of this Leadership Development Program?


The content and number of units will be designed to meet your needs.
For example, the CEO of one local council wanted to build the ability of the organisation and a group of emerging leaders to serve its ratepayers and other stakeholders more professionally, effectively and efficiently.

In discussion with the client, we designed a leadership development program of 9 modules, focussing on improving leadership skills in the following key areas:

  • Managing self - emotional intelligence, leadership, management and relating styles, managing time, priorities and workload
  • Managing people's daily and long-term performance - work allocation and scheduling, planning, appraising, development and coaching
  • Achieving through others - diversity, delegation and empowerment, leading effective teams
  • Managing problems, decisions and projects
  • Communications - planning, strategy and tactics, styles and barriers, business communication skills
  • Leading and managing change - change models, people factors, project impacts
  • Staff recruitment, selection, engagement and retention
That program has been very successful in developing the skills and willingness of middle managers to step up and demonstrate real leadership behaviour, and is clearly achieving the original objectives of the CEO.

In your organisation, you might want to vary the number of modules or substitute one more relevant to you, such as conflict resolution, train the trainer, etc.


What is the quality of this Leadership Development Program?


You will measure the quality by how well the participants apply what they learn in the program, and how that benefits your organisation. To maximise success, we use:

  • Proven leadership models and processes (e.g. Bass and Avolio's Full Range Leadership ModelTM, the MLQ 360 leadership questionnaire and development coaching, and Action Learning)
  • Interactive, practical workshops with activities, discussion, self-evaluation and guided self-coaching
  • Facilitators / coaches with wide real-world leadership experience, accredited and experienced in facilitation, coaching and quality leadership
  • Ongoing evaluation and tailoring of the program and participant progress
"Challenged my assumptions about leadership. Opened my mind. Real-life examples and exercises which helped me to relate the theory to my work environment. Practical tools I can implement at work. Plenty of time for discussion and feedback". (Participants, regional council.)
