The Future of Leadership is a practical, two-day course that examines and begins to develop the skills and knowledge required to position participants to be effective today and tomorrow. The subject has an intervention design with a full-day facilitated workshop, a four-week intervention period, and a second full-day workshop. This spacing allows participants to reflect on what they have learned and put the learning into practice. There are also pre-course readings and leadership assessments to prepare participants, provide meaningful insights, and build a base of relevant knowledge.
The leadership attributes, capabilities and applications of twenty to thirty years ago have been shown to be insufficient in the modern context. What is required now? What will be required in the next twenty years? How do you lead a virtual team, or an organisation that works completely flexibly? What does it take to lead an increasingly diverse workforce?
The subject is structured as follows:
- Two weeks' preparation: pre-readings, participant meetings with their supervisors, preparation of a 'challenging scenario at work' personal case study
- All-day facilitated workshop: overview of leadership and management, discussion of knowledge and capabilities for the future, experiential activities
- Four-week intervention period: additional readings, self-assessment, applying new knowledge and skills to the personal case study, reflective journaling, connecting with 'accountability partner'
- All-day facilitated workshop: reflection as a group, experiential activities, action planning
- Post-program reflective assessment
