Folio Community Leadership Program 2017

Applications are now open and close April 2017.

Being a senior leader in your own technical field of expertise is no longer enough. So are you ready to grow and be challenged?

The Folio Community Leadership Program (Folio) is for senior leaders with well-established careers seeking to take the next step to broaden their portfolio of leadership skills and leverage their contribution in their organisational role and beyond.

This experiential program includes an opening and closing residential retreat, a series of monthly workshops and seminars, two evening sessions and a formal program graduation. Drawing on the experience of our expert facilitator, a range of dynamic guest speakers and a diverse group of peers in the room, you will explore: leadership; vision, influence and ethics; community leadership; collaboration; and networks.
