Upcoming Dates for From Manager to Leader

Canberra Campus
Wednesday, November 4 — Friday, November 6, 2020

Delivery mode

3 days, face-to-face​

This program is run as both a residential and non-residential program.

The residential experience, held at The Briars, achieves positive outcomes by both providing opportunities to be immersed in learning and to develop relationships and providing a new space and context where participants were equal and existing barriers and hierarchies are broken down.

The non-residential experience is held at the AIM Canberra campus. The benefits of studying in a classroom setting include being able to share first-hand experiences, ideas and questions with peers and our expert facilitators. You’ll study alongside like-minded people and strengthen your network.

Additional Information

The Briars is near Bowral in the NSW Southern Highlands, midway between Canberra and Sydney, some 15 minutes’ drive from the Hume Highway. The Briars allows sole occupancy for CPM courses, so participants can get to know each other and interact within a private setting. Transportation to and from the venue is provided from Canberra by a chartered transport service.

What’s included?

Residential delivery includes all meals, accommodation and return bus between Canberra and the program venue. Non-residential delivery includes a dinner on the evening of night one as well as catering throughout the day of delivery.

Both experiences include courseware, experiential activities, diagnostic profiling and a one-hour Executive Coaching session post-program.

About About 360° Feedback and DiSC Work of Leaders

360° Feedback is a process whereby leaders and staff members can receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people they work with. It is an important element of this program and is undertaken using the Executive Leadership Profile 2 (ELP2). The ELP2 is built upon an established public sector management competency framework and focuses on public sector-specific capabilities. 360° feedback, with its focus on comparing one’s own views with others’ assessments of our performance and behaviour, lies at the very heart of management and leadership success.

The suite of DiSC profiles are behavioural profiles that identify self-reported behavioural preferences.  Based on William Marsten’s work, the DiSC profiles identify individuals’ key behavioural drivers and describe common behaviours that people adopt as a consequence. The DiSC WoL profile looks at how a leader drives vision, achieves alignment and enables execution.  It aims to develop greater self-awareness and greater skill in relation to communicating with others in the workplace.
