About the workshop
Transformations in the Queensland Public Sector have unlocked new and exciting opportunities for emerging women leaders to step up into senior executive roles. 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, as well as 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, strategically driving their own advancement.
This workshop will equip you with the tools and practical knowledge to build confidence in your leadership abilities and best position yourself to advance your career to senior levels.
