In case you missed it, two recent studies have again put leadership in Australian organisations in the spotlight.

Both the Australian Institute of Management (AIM) survey, and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) survey, have highlighted the skills gap in the crucial area of leadership and have rated our leadership as average at best and even less than average, in key areas of people development. That’s the issue – but what do we do about it?

We do know that an improvement in leadership skills is a proven way of improving the effectiveness and productivity of our organisations.

With over 30 years’ experience in leadership development, Leadership At Work has been able to develop a highly effective CEO and executive level program.

Workshop details

Whilst most senior managers have participated individually in a number of leadership and management programs, courses, degrees etc, few may have had the opportunity to improve skills in a team environment.
