Diploma of Leadership and Management

Manage and lead in your organisation 

The work of leadership is constantly evolving. COVID-19 has triggered massive disruption to how we plan, manage and lead our people and organisations. A new ‘normal’ is being created and we don’t really know what it is going to look like! What we do know is more than ever we need leadership skills. Current and future leaders need to be able to respond and lead through disruption, change, massive physical, economic, performance and workplace cultural challenges. This will require a shift in thinking; a shift in mindset; a shift in engagement practices; a shift in how to lead people; a shift in performance – a shift in Leadership. This program will help you develop LeaderSHIFT capabilities.
