It is a privilege to be the inaugural Leadership Victoria Leader in Residence.

This is a particularly important time for Leadership Victoria (LV) and for all of us committed to building leadership practices that improve people’s lives, build confident and hopeful communities and create positive futures for all Australians.

Never has there been more interest in or opportunities for thoughtful leadership development or more divergent views about the best ways leaders can and should influence our lives.

At the same time some of our most complex problems, pressing issues and major concerns are now such that no single sector, organisation or corporation has all necessary resources or all the capabilities needed to initiate and sustain the changes we need.

Increasingly the most successful, sustainable outcomes emerge when insightful, strategic leaders see ways to improve circumstances for people and then act to build partnerships designed to bring about positive change. Strategic leadership can put all this important, new effort together, working collaboratively across boundaries to create stronger, more sustainable futures.

Over the years LV has made outstanding contributions to numerous people, organizations and communities around Australia.  An active alumni of over 800 leaders from all sectors, is committed and willing to activate their extraordinary networks to act strategically to improve lives.

LV offers exceptional leadership development and practice. I hope over the next year you’ll join me during my time as Leader in Residence, to further develop and expand the influence of good ideas about the roles and opportunities for outstanding leadership in Australia.

I will be delighted to hear from you through LV or directly at ckotur@netspace.net au.
