Foundations of Intentional Leadership

Foundations of Intentional Leadership supports the transition from a skilled technical specialist to new management professional and intentional leader. The program is a foundation piece that will equip you the core skills to take the first step into management with confidence and accelerate your career progression.

This program is a 12-week blended program combining face-to-face learning, online study and leadership coaching, followed by 4-months of one-on-one mentoring. The learning experience is embedded with practical workplace projects to develop your real-world applied professional skills.

The program accepts up to only 16 learners in each cohort for intimate and interactive face-to-face sessions, with more opportunities for individual learner success.

In each location, Foundations of Intentional Leadership will be facilitated by highly-credentialed management experts who will guide learners with their experience, knowledge and passion for leadership.

The Chartered Manager Partner Program

Chartered Manager (CMgr) is the internationally-recognised professional designation accrediting management and leadership excellence.

The highest status that can be achieved as a manager and leader, it allows managers to professionalise their leadership skills and stand out in a competitive global market.

The Chartered Manager Partner Program pushes staff to achieve the global benchmark of management capability. It adds value to your organisation and puts staff on the path to future professional development. The program not only provides staff with a significant and credible professional target, but also gives managers an ongoing responsibility to develop themselves within a formal Continuing Professional Development framework.
