Develop your leadership skills with our She Leads Diploma of Leadership and Management

14 January 2020

Enrolments are now open for our She Leads Diploma of Leadership and Management. Come along to our information session at 5pm on 23 January 2020 to find out more.

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 (BSB51918), allowing you to build your leadership skills while working towards a nationally recognised qualification. The course also explicitly acknowledges and addresses the perspectives, challenges and opportunities for women in leadership.

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

Upon successful completion, you will graduate with a BSB51918 Diploma of Leadership and Management, recognising your competency in:

  • 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 and ensuring team effectiveness
  • supporting the recruitment, selection and induction of staff
  • managing diversity
  • facilitating continuous improvement.

The She Leads Diploma is delivered over 10 dynamic full-day classes which include: seminars; practical exercises with case studies and role plays; personal development sessions; and peer coaching.
