“Learning to Lead gave me a technical insight into the mechanics of leadership. It made me more confident and knowledgeable as a leader.  It also made you realise that leaders are made not born.”  Michelle O’Sullivan Qld Health

Managing or Leading – what’s the difference? Most of us know what leaders are expected to do – they come up with strategies, co-ordinate resources, look after planning, scheduling, making changes and keep an eye on how people perform…

But what does it mean to really ‘lead’ – what is it that defines excellence in leading others? Leading, as against managing, actually involves a very different set of skills and roles that many who find themselves in managing or leading positions are under-equipped to handle: how to infuse enthusiasm, mobilise energy, shape a shared vision, inspire commitment; how to be coaches, culture-creators, meaning-makers, relationship-builders, facilitators, perspective-takers and change-makers…  [See FactFile attached or online]

And that's where The Change Forum’s coaching clinics come in… Whether you’re new to leadership or aspiring to be, or a current leader with more technical knowledge than leadership know-how – you can benefit greatly from exploring 8 roles real leaders play and a series of down-to-earth tools to help you build better relationships and handle the responsibilities of leading people and change with more ease…

“Learning to Lead made me feel much more hopeful and confident that I can become a leader and gave me a positive focus on how to. Thanks Bill”  Michel Taylor - Queensland Health
