About the workshop

Transformations in the Northern Territory Public Sector have unlocked new and exciting opportunities for emerging women leaders to step up into senior executive roles, and for established leaders to hone their skills. To successfully navigate this complex and ever-changing environment, leaders must possess keen insight into the internal and external challenges facing the sector, but also a clear understanding of themselves and the impact they have within their team, and the broader organisation.

Aspiring leaders in this environment must display reflective thinking, self-awareness, planning and strategy, but also the confidence and courage to put themselves forward for new opportunities and challenges. Successful leaders understand the importance of taking their career progression into their own hands, and strategically driving their own advancement.

This workshop will equip you with the tools and practical knowledge to build confidence in your leadership abilities and to best position yourself to advance their careers. This hands-on, two day interactive learning session has been designed with both current and emerging leaders in mind, it aims to equip you with a practical leadership plan that you can use to navigate a successful career and advance to senior levels.

You will be invited to complete an online emotional intelligence assessment instrument, the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i). The EQ-i is one of the most respected and recognised EQ assessment instruments worldwide and it will provide you with a robust and intuitive framework to address questions related to resilience and provide insight into your leadership strengths.

Personal leadership reports will be made available at the workshop. The report will form the foundation of the workshop and will tailor your learning experience of leadership in relation to emotional intelligence.
