Successful Leaders Can Change the World
Tuesday, 18th October 2016 at 10:18 am

The Sydney Leadership program offers social leadership and impact based on the Harvard Adaptive Leadership model and provides life-changing skills.

Being a leader involves more than managing a team to drive success in an organisation. The world needs leaders who not only excel within a business context, but also who believe in social impact, in making changes that are important to the business and to the environment.

The Sydney Leadership Program, part of The Benevolent Society’s Social Leadership Australia, was created to build leadership with a commitment to social obligation and impact. The program, which uses the Harvard Adaptive Leadership model, uses experiential skills to create purposeful leadership for those who want to be leaders and inspires transformation for leaders facing complex challenges.

“The program really challenged me to look at what I was doing and how I was doing it and to look at it in a different way,” head of corporate social responsibility, health and wellbeing at Medibank and a Sydney Leadership graduate Rita Marigliani said.

“I’m much more conscious of how I react, assumptions that I make and how I approach problems. I have certainly noticed the change in outcomes as a result.”

The Sydney Leadership Program has become a catalyst for change by promoting leadership for social change, going since 1999 with 600 graduates. The program is seeking diverse and interested aspiring leaders to complete the 2017 program and transform into successful, social leaders.

The program offers:

  • increased self awareness and adaptability
  • stronger relationship management conflict management, partnering and collaboration
  • working across boundaries diverse stakeholder management across sectors
  • using network thinking creation of valuable and meaningful contacts
  • developing breakthrough thinking resolve stubborn, complex organisational dilemmas
  • driving organisational transformation at many levels get others to take up leadership roles.  

Later this year, up to 30 influential applicants will be selected to participate in the program and join the Social Leadership Australia alumni community, a strong and engaged life-long group.

Graduates build relationships with other leaders from across private industry, government and not-for-profit sectors opening up new pathways to progress.
