Our Emerging Leaders Program is designed to offer a flexible, work-based, blended learning program that develops leadership skills and supports career development within complex public and private sector environments. Through our partnerships with government and industry, we keep up with current and emerging requirements and topics of interest, enabling us to tailor our content and learning design to meet current industry standards.
There are nine modules for you to choose from. Your choice of modules may be based on either your interest in a particular subject matter or your decision to progress toward achieving a postgraduate qualification.
This program is designed for:
To foster cross-sector collaborations, workshops will be attended by both public and private sector participants and include case studies from both sectors.
Full details, including active learning module workshop dates, and assessment dates for award extension units are provided in the downloadable timetables.
All modules have an active learning component and most have an optional award extension unit. Arrive at 8.30am for a 9am start. Classes run until 4.30pm.
Each active learning module is delivered using a blend of learning techniques over 7 weeks. You will start with approximately 6 hours of online learning over a 2-week period. You then attend workshops, study online and work on a workplace project over a 5-week period, totalling 20 hours of learning. The face-to-face component of this 20 hours is 12 hours (2 days).
Most of the award extension units are delivered online. For each unit, there are 2 assessments, a summative and a formative. Webinars are held by the facilitator during the unit.
Participating in this program gives you the option to continue your studies and pursue a Graduate Certificate in Business (Managing and Leading in the Public Sector). In 2018, there will be a Graduate Certificate in Business available for corporate sector employees. The Graduate Certificate in Business pathways into our MBA and EMBA programs.

Aspiring leaders develop their leadership skills through self-awareness, individual planning, courage and commitment. In this module we uncover the practices linked to effective leadership, motivation and self-actualisation to enable you, as a leader, to create your new way of being.
This unit examines strategic management concepts and frameworks that will help the emerging leader to understand the strategic context and develop fit-for-purpose business strategies. Specifically, it will focus on the identification and delivery of benefits that arise from innovative strategic initiatives.
Successful teams and organisations depend on high performing leaders with a sound understanding of communication processes, a realistic awareness of their own communication behaviours, and well-developed skills. This module supports senior leaders to develop this understanding and awareness.
Decisions related to social responsibility, the safety of products and practices and the quality of stakeholder relationships define the reputation of an organisation and impact on its potential for success. The unit content focuses on current issues in risk, politics and ethics; frameworks and theories related to ethical decision making; risk management and power relationships, environmental, institutional and social responsibility; self-evaluation; codes of conduct, stakeholder perceptions and reputational management; and the development of managerial courage.
Aspiring leaders must be able to design and lead organisational transformation initiatives in complex and changing environments. This module focuses on the fundamental principles of effective change program leadership, including ensuring strategic alignment, challenging assumptions, envisioning and communicating a better future, delivering a coherent capability, building effective governance, and realising benefits.
The development and delivery of complex policy requires a great deal of scrutiny and rigour. This module will focus on developing essential skills that will enable you to engage with key internal and external stakeholders more effectively, as well as to demonstrate strategic thinking in the policy development and implementation process.
High-performing leaders understand the importance of effective supplier relationships and see their short- and long-term potential to impact business outcomes. The module supports senior leaders to maintain a clear alignment between strategic procurement decisions and business objectives.
Effective leaders must have the knowledge, skills and practical tools and processes to confidently drive high performance and deliver results through positive relationships. This module focuses on knowledge and understanding of the influence of positive leadership on enabling performance success at an individual and team level.
