Harvard Club of Australia - Non-Profit Leadership Program 2015

Harvard Club of Australia (HCA) are now accepting registrations for this year's Non-Profit Leadership Program, held in August in Sydney.

Non-Profit Leadership Program: LEADING IN TURBULENT TIMES

Program Overview

How can leaders of non-profit organisations enhance their own leadership? How can they use themselves more effectively to transform their own organisations and to enable their organisations to have an even bigger impact on society?

The Harvard Club of Australia Non-Profit Leadership Program is a unique two and a half day residential executive education program designed for senior management at non-profit organisations, and is presented by a Harvard Business School Professor using the acclaimed HBS case study method.

Through a series of case-studies of successful leaders from non-profit and for-profit organizations, you will examine how to strengthen your own capabilities as a change agent. You 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.

What You'll Learn:

Leaders must alternate among a number of roles in order to be effective. For ease of learning the course content is broken into the following roles:

  • Leader as Architect
  • Leader as Coach
  • Leader as Motivator
  • Leader as Change Agent and Visionary
  • Expand their service offering to achieve growth

Using a range of cases, including specific non-profit case studies as the backbone of the discussions and learning, HCA will help you understand how non-profit leaders can play each role.

The insights gained will enable participants to develop their leadership capabilities and get a clearer picture on how to lead more effectively.

Who Should Attend:

The HCA leadership program is aimed at CEOs and senior leaders of charitable not-for-profit organisations or social enterprises. The organisations they lead must, in the opinion of Harvard Club of Australia, generally fit one or more of the following criteria:

  • They offer a charitable, community-public benefit or poverty relief purpose, as indicated by whether the NFP has Australian Tax Office TCC and/or DGR status, or “registered charity” status.
  • They are a social enterprise or business (organisations using a business model to provide a social benefit) and which may not have TCC/DGR.
  • They are an organisation with a community or public benefit purpose (generally evidenced by a “formal” governance structure, voluntary participation by members and independence from government).
