The Australian Scholarships Foundation – ASF - is the only Australian organisation solely focused on funding and facilitating scholarships for Australian not for profit (NFP) directors and staff to undertake education, training  and mentoring programs that improve their ability to lead and manage their organisations.

ASF is the Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Fund of AusSchol Incorporated, an Australian registered charity, ABN 83 420 919 581.

ASF works with a number of Education Partners and Supporters to access and make scholarships available in a growing range of leadership and management training programs.

Harvard Non-Profit Leadership Program

Leading in Turbulent Times

Sydney, 3rd - 5th August 2015

Registrations are now open for the Harvard Club of Australia’s annual ‘Non-Profit Leadership Program, a unique two and a half day residential executive education program designed for CEOs and senior leaders of non-profit organisations.

HCA

Held in Sydney on the 3rd to 5th August, the program will be presented by Harvard Business School Professors Joshua Margolis and Ryan Buell, using the acclaimed HBS case study method.

Of the program, Margolis says, “…what we are really hoping to do is to engage people in energetic learning conversations around [leadership] roles as they relate to what you need to do internally to lead an organisation effectively when times are uncertain and evolving and turbulent, and what do you need to lead people so you can effectively meet the external challenges and deliver for your customer”.

Through a series of case studies of successful leaders from non-profit and for-profit organisations, participants will examine how to strengthen their own capabilities as a change agent. They will examine how to lead organisations to introduce important changes in society; how to build effective teams and organisations to lead that external change; and how to engineer internal organisational change as external conditions shift.

Lachlan Cooke, CEO of the Indigenous Communities Education & Awareness Foundation and 2014 program attendee, says, “the course has made me clearer of how successful organisations really are the way they are, giving me the motivation along with the toolbox of skills and knowledge to now take into action in my own workplace.”
