The She Leads Diploma of Leadership and Management is at the cutting edge of leadership development. It applies a framework of developing participants’ cognitive capabilities and emotional intelligence (knowing), practical leadership skills (doing), and leadership identity (being).

The course interweaves this framework with a traditional Diploma of Leadership and Management, allowing participants to build their leadership skills while working towards a nationally recognised qualification. The course also explicitly acknowledges and addresses the perspectives, challenges and opportunities of women in leadership.

During the She Leads Diploma, participants will have the opportunity to explore and refine their leadership identity, and reflect on their experiences, strengths, values, and vision for the future. Through this process, participants will learn how to become authentic and effective leaders.

She Leads has both the capacity to provide participants with a new skill set or formalise the skills that they have accumulated through their careers.

Upon completion, participants will graduate with a Diploma of Leadership and Management (BSB51915), recognising their competency in the following areas:

  • Managing personal work priorities and professional development
  • Managing operational plans, budgets and financial plans
  • Communicating with influence
  • Using emotional intelligence
  • Managing meetings
  • Managing people performance & ensuring team effectiveness
  • Supporting the recruitment, selection and induction of staff
  • Managing diversity
  • Facilitating continuous improvement

The She Leads Diploma is delivered over ten dynamic full day classes (held monthly) which include: seminars, practical exercises with case studies and role plays, personal development sessions, and peer coaching.
