The Keys to Leadership

We will explore three key components of leadership:
• People
• Purpose
• Potential
and discuss the self-awareness, self-care, mindset and behaviours that create the leadership that is needed in the global context we live and work in.

Change Management

One of the foundational roles of leaders - to keep their organisation iterating, growing and improving. Change management is not a stand-alone skill, it is deeply embedded in effective leadership. This session will give some foundational steps that leaders who lead change with success use to get buy in and commitment from others.

Collaboration and Partnerships
What are the new definers of collaboration?
What are some of the barriers to forming highly effective collaborations with others?
What is our role is changing the paradigm in the research and health space?
How can we support each other in this work?

Career Development
Tapping into the knowledge of our mentors in the room we will identify areas of growth and development for ourselves and how to support our career goals.

Hot Topics
Drawing on the leadership challenges faced by the group, our facilitators and mentors will help us explore and strategise around them, through group discussion and panel responses.
