Purpose In Action

Ready to Collaborate? Building great leaders continues to be a challenge for Corporate Australia.  With more than 50% of employees disengaged in most organisations, business leaders have struggled to create inspiring and engaged workplaces which helps employees navigate change. With the rate of change continuing to increase, there is a need for a more human, collaborative and customer centric leader who has a deeper understanding of their own leadership values and puts stakeholders at the heart of everything they do. Change is constant, and a more “sustainable” mindset is critical to lead it effectively.

This purposeful leadership development workshop will help employees connect to and identify with the purpose and values of the NFPs and how that relates to their own leadership  capability to lead and inspire change. It is the beginning of a series of events — outcomes from the day will set the agenda for the next event to create a sustainable program for leadership development and creating social impact.

Venue:
MLC Building, 105 Miller St. North Sydney
