Program Description

Leadership Starts from Within is designed to: build leadership capacity of people in the workplace, enable understanding and practice of contemporary leadership, allow participants to develop an understanding of ‘self as leader’ particularly through the lens of emotional intelligences, and to provide opportunity to enact effective leadership in the workplace.

Participants develop strength-based approaches to building leadership capabilities by undertaking, analysing and utilising a 360 Degree Feedback Survey.

This program is suitable for employees in either teaching or non-teaching roles where there is opportunity to lead.

Please note that this program closes for enrolments on Wednesday 1 March 2023 (3.5 months before the first workshop date).

This program connects to a qualification pathway. It is one unit of four units required to attain the Graduate Certificate in Education (Leadership) with UTAS. This program is 50% completion of the post graduate unit (EDP711 Leadership Starts from Within) leaving a balance of 50% which requires only one 2500 word reflective essay based on the program learnings.
