Strategy and Leadership Training for Leaders | Leadership Masterclass Series

Level-up your strategy and leadership skills with this masterclass module. Designed for leaders in manufacturing, you will build your capability to effectively navigate challenges, make informed decisions, and inspire others to achieve common goals.

Queensland manufacturers face an increasingly complex range of challenges, from high costs, changing market conditions to labour attraction and retention. This complexity is often met with quick strategic fixes, short-term goals, and firefighting to keep the business afloat. Leaders that learn to view problems from unique angles, experiment with strategic options, and explore future possibilities that others might not see immediately will be better able to keep their business relevant.

The strategy component of this module will provide you with useful frameworks and insights on how leaders can prepare for the future while balancing the priorities of the present.

The leadership component will assist you to bring out the best in others by applying and adapting your leadership style and managing the conditions that drive individual and team performance.

Selected participants will have the opportunity to access a three-month, one-to-one coaching program. These coaching sessions will be tailored to support your business needs and will guide you  through the next phase of your leadership journey, whether you’re keen to empower others or achieve a cultural change.
