How do you lead with impact in a volatile, uncertain, chaotic, complex, and ambiguous world?

Why aren’t traditional leadership models working?

What does it mean to be an Authentic Leader?

Leadership Victoria, in conjunction with the Authentic Leadership Institute, presents Nick Craig, President of the Authentic Leadership Institute and co-author of 'Finding Your True North', in a powerful two-hour leadership intensive: Discovering Authentic Leadership.

An executive's most important role is to be a steward of the organization's purpose. To do that, the executive needs to know their own individual purpose, which is a key to exceptional performance and greater well being.

Based on his recent Harvard Business Review article, “From Purpose to Impact”, Nick will show how purpose is the key to navigating the constantly changing world around us.  A cornerstone of Authentic Leadership, purpose provides a platform for exceptional individual, team, and organizational performance.

Learn why defining your leadership purpose is perhaps the single most important developmental task you can undertake.

Theodore Levitt said “the future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious”. This has never been truer. The challenge for leaders is to provide their people with the wherewithal to creatively explore and develop potential opportunities faster and with greater success.

Whether they are in the private, government, or civic sector, leaders at all levels need to be able to inspire and unleash the creative genius and intellectual capital within their organisation.

Leadership Victoria’s Creative Leadership Series have been designed as stand-alone professional development programs, as well as an unfolding series of workshops that build into a complete creative leadership mastery program. These programs help develop leaders for today and tomorrow.

And the benefits to your organisation are significant as you see creative leaders in action – solving problems faster, increasing overall productivity, turning ideas into solutions, engaging the workforce to collaborate and contribute, and realizing possibilities never before seen.

A Series of Inspirational and Practical ProgramsWhether you attend one, two, or all of these programs, you will be involved in a fast paced, interactive, content rich learning experience. You will be participating with other leaders from all sectors of the community – private, government and civic, and the connections you make will be significant and enduring.Per Masterclass:Standard: $850 (+ GST)Early Bird: $600 (+ GST)NFP: $490 (+GST)
