Social Leadership Australia is offering $16,500 worth of scholarships for not-for-profit sector leaders to participate in the 2014 Sydney leadership program.

Scholarship Overview

Unlike anything else in Australia, Sydney Leadership offers a unique and different learning experience: a journey through new ideas and insights to discover fresh inspiration, connect with your highest potential and build your capacity to really lead.

Sydney Leadership is an annual, eight-month program that brings together 30 leaders from the business, not-for-profit and government sectors. The program’s aim is to foster new leadership skills and a new determination to create positive social change.

Since 1999, the Sydney Leadership program has brought together more than 500 decision-makers, and empowered them to bring about lasting, positive change in their workplace and community. A number of stories of program graduates are featured on the Social Leadership Australia website.

Combining cutting-edge methodologies with world-class teaching based on the Harvard Adaptive Leadership model, this powerful program will equip you with a sophisticated new leadership skill set to really make a difference - in your work, in your community.

Sydney Leadership is an invitation to join a group of great people with diverse backgrounds - but similar ideals - to share ideas, challenge each others' views and learn together. Spend eight months gaining new insights, skills and lasting connections for ongoing support, ideas and opportunities.
