Self-Directed Learning Module

Throughout the program, self-directed learning content is accessible via our state-of-the-art online learning management system (LMS) allowing participants to engage with it at any time from any device. Content includes high quality video tutorials, ‘best practice’ leadership literature, experiential activities and reflective tasks.


To commence the course participants, undertake a capability assessment to help to inform their developmental focus areas. The assessment is revisited at the end of the program, enabling participants to measure their progress and achievements and identify future opportunities for continued growth.

Delivery Elements

Participants are encouraged to identify a workplace sponsor to support them during the program. The primary role of the sponsor is to act as a sounding board for ideas and to help ensure the participant is supported and engaged during the program. The role of workplace sponsor often falls to direct managers however this is also an opportunity to connect participants with other colleagues and mentors.

Workplace Sponsor

Peer coaching offers participants an opportunity to build their capacity to support learning in others and provides real time feedback from their peers. Participants are invited to reach out to each other in order to practice meaningful, outcome-driven coaching conversations.

Peer Coaching

At regular intervals across the program, participants attend interactive webinars focused on rich discussion and debate. These high impact sessions aim to contextualise learning within real world situations and create a powerful regular connection point to explore new ideas and insights.

Virtual Workshop Days

Participants attend two, full day virtual workshops segmented into three high impact sessions with breaks in-between. During the workshops, participants work collaboratively on real-time challenges and build powerful alliances. The format offers valuable insight informed by collective experience as well as time for induvial reflective practice.

During the course, participants undertake a Workplace Application Project (WAP). The purpose of the WAP is to deepen and extend the learning outcomes and assist participants in collecting evidence around their increased capability. The WAP is also important in ensuring that learning outcomes are aligned to organisational objectives and enabling participants to deliver something of lasting value back to their organisation. Project outcomes include such things as improvements to operational processes, team culture or performance and productivity. During the final workshop each participant completes a short presentation on their WAP and their key learnings.
