    What role will you play in the future of local government?

    With a complex and continuously evolving sector, it is now more than ever essential that local government is prepared for the future. New services, new skills, local and global impacts and the ever-changing digital landscape have fundamentally changed expectations of both the nature of and delivery of services.

    • Enhance complex and adaptive thinking capabilities
    • Increase capabilities to generate solutions to complex adaptive problems
    • Challenge assumptions and perspectives
    • Equip executive leaders to navigate rapidly changing and evolving environments.

    The Executive Leaders Program is for accomplished Executives (Chief Executive Officers, Directors and General Managers) in both regional and metropolitan councils who are seeking to expand their thinking and leadership impact.

    • EQ’s impact on effective leadership
    • The four domains of EQ
    • Strategies for staying aware of your emotions and managing your behaviour
    • Strategies for understanding other people’s moods, behaviours and motives to improve the quality of your relationships
