Alliance for Leadership Learning – 2018 Australian Live Case Study

Public leadership through the lens of social cohesion, inclusion & diversity

23-26 October, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast, Queensland


Course Overview

Today’s leaders face challenges that are more global, fluid and multidimensional. Issues, including change, must be managed within an increasingly complex environment. Leaders are also expected to clearly demonstrate the social benefit of an enterprise. Effective leaders rely on learnings and networks that transcend geography, jurisdiction, profession and sector.

In this case study, you will explore what it means to lead organisations in times of change and uncertainty. Specifically, you will consider participatory leadership through the lens of a ‘live’ issue facing all societies and organisations – the need for social cohesion, inclusion and diversity. Together with other senior leaders in public, private and academic fields, you will be introduced to the leadership challenges and approaches of organisations and communities in the fields of education, settlement, community safety and recovery. You will be challenged with new ways of thinking and new approaches using real scenarios and live problems.

Occurring in the week preceding the International Metropolis Conference, this Australian Live Case Study will attract leaders from across the world.

Your Hosts

Alliance for Leadership Learning is a cross-sectorial, inter-disciplinary collaboration of practitioners working globally and locally to grow and develop the next generation of leaders.
