Champions of Change
The Impossible Institute’s Leadership Program develops The 4 Levels of Leadership and builds 3 Fundamental Leadership Capabilities:
• Inspiration: Your capacity to increase your influence, define a vision and lead your people to it.
• Innovation: Your willingness to reinvent and lead your category and the marketplace into the future.
• Implementation: Your ability to lead change and deliver strategic performance and results by making powerful decisions.
These capabilities are developed across 4-12 months (the latter being the norm) and include:
4 Immersive Training Days applied to the four types of leadership listed below
3 Group Mentoring Days
2 Sessions with Subject Matter Experts chosen to fit your organisation’s specific needs from The Impossible Institute's network
1 Focussed Project to drive accountability, make progress visible and ensure what is learned drives a commercial outcome and is not simply an academic exercise.
Champions of Change - A complete leadership curriculum:
The "Self-Leadership" Immersion focuses on developing self awareness, uncovering your strengths and most importantly, transforming your weaknesses into assets. This training day includes unpacking unconscious biases and creating a consciousness about where your blindspots are and designing systems that support you and your team in achieving peak performance.
2. Team Leadership
It's been said that a true leader is defined not by how they lead, but by who follows them and how willingly they do so. This immersion explores team design as well as how to drive greater collaboration, increased cohesion and clearer lines of communication. A leader never has absolute control over the culture that emerges in an organisation, however they can, and should, define the environment and the expectations that allow it to flourish.
3. Thought Leadership
If you're not leading positive change, are you really leading at all? We're inclined to think, "Not so much!" That's why this training day helps your leadership teams to develop a unique leadership voice, to increase their standing as industry influencers and to create greater synchronicity between both reputation and implementation. They’ll examine the themes of legacy, reputation, personal brand, mentoring and succession planning.
4. Industry Leadership
This immersion offers perhaps the greatest commercial impact and growth for leaders and organisations. In the Industry (or Market) Leadership immersion, we'll work with your leaders and teams to define your Innovation Lens™ - the value exchange through which all commercial decisions can be measured and aligned with your strategic metrics. Our belief is that Innovation is a critical leadership capability - that it is more than just new product or service design - it is the capacity to define the future of, not just an organisation, but an entire industry. Ultimately, this is all about establishing industry, market and category leadership.
Elevate™ was specifically designed to create momentum and results. It brings together two of Australia’s best female influencers and thought leaders, Kieran Flanagan & Janine Garner, combining their strengths into a powerhouse program.
Getting women to more senior positions is not simple. We need to address multiple facets; from mindset, to skill set, to support set and getting them set. This program is designed to bring together the various skills needed to shift the dial when it comes to diversity in the workplace and women in leadership.
By providing a targeted development opportunity for women, Elevate™ aims to create a level playing field for our emerging female leaders, and ultimately, to create the opportunity for businesses to achieve gender equality within their leadership teams and pipeline.
The program is not about promoting more women over men. It is about creating a richer pipeline of equivalent female candidates so you can achieve greater equality. Removing the barriers to diversity in your talent pipeline will ensure that you continually strengthen your diverse mix ensuring businesses are better positioned to serve their customers.
This program has been designed to run as a two day workshop, 4 day program or intensive 6-12 month program.
We will support women with high leadership potential and develop the skills and mindset they need to develop their leadership. They will have access to thinking, training and skills development that focus on business acumen, confidence, communication and connection skills. The rest is up to them.
