Learning to LEAD: Laying Foundations for Leadership

...GOLD COAST May 28-29... BRISBANE July 23-24... TOOWOOMBA August 25-26

What is leadership? How do you lead? What could you do to be a better leader?

Contrary to popular belief, leaders are not born knowing innately how to lead – they learn how to. The challenge of mastering leadership like any other skill takes application, perseverance and a determination to learn from every interaction and experience – and keep building on it. Good leaders constantly question what they’re doing and how they’re doing it, and are willing to learn, change and grow.

Learning to LEAD: Laying Foundations for Leadership is a 2-day fast-track coaching clinic that paces you through essential leadership lessons that make a real difference to your leadership, and clarifies fundamental roles, skills and capabilities you need to really lead.

The practise-intensive program lays critical leadership foundations and introduces you to an array of useful leadership concepts, frameworks and tools, along with a self-coaching model you can use to help you set personal goals and improvement plans.  It aims to help you:


Explore the qualities of leadership and 8 key Roles of Real Leaders


Use Senge’s 5 Learning Disciplines as a cogent leadership framework and a set of tools for leading


Gain insights into why personal mastery and self-awareness matter for great leadership


Build a leadership toolkit to help handle leadership responsibilities you need to tackle on your journey


Begin work on your own leadership challenges and prepare a personal leadership learning plan

Are you a new manager wondering what the leadership aspects of your role are really all about?  Or a more experienced manager comfortable with your functional responsibilities but wondering whether you really could be doing better as a leader?

Designed with new and aspiring leaders in mind, the program is also for those managers who’ve been leading for some time, are good at their technical or operational roles but haven't had the opportunity to explore what leadership really is or catch up on some of the basic leadership skills and tools they need.

What do people say about this beneficial clinic?

“Learning to Lead was very valuable – time well spent. It gave me a better appreciation of leading, provided good tools and many new skills and insights.”  David Kiehne, Queensland Health

"Our organisation decided to concentrate on developing our leaders of tomorrow and Bill's range of Learning to Lead courses was just what we’d been looking for. Feedback has been consistently great! Real changes can been seen in attitudes and behaviours.” Jo Lambden, Director Hervey Bay City Council

Got interested colleagues and friends? Greatly appreciated if you can please forward this course notice on to staff, colleagues and friends who may be keen to strengthen their leadership skills base or encourage others to and create energetic and pro-active leadership cultures at work. And if you would extend this circulation to include your wider management, HR or government networks, we’d also be most grateful.
