HerBusiness - How to Lead a Quest - 2018

How to Lead a Quest

HerBusiness supports the ASF initiative to enhance the management and accountability of not-for-profit organisations by offering up to 10 scholarship places for their How to Lead a Quest webinar in 2018.

Program Overview

The modern day workplace has become over-run with time constraints and workplace pressure, keeping us endlessly busy with the illusion of progress, but leaving very little time for REAL progress.

Dr Jason Fox describes this as “the curse of efficiency”, whereby we default to quick fixes and familiar approaches instead of taking risks or generating new business value. We face the “infinite complexity” of an uncertain future. Ultimately, the future arrives and organisations die.

In this webinar, Suzi Dafnis (founder and CEO of HerBusiness) interviews best selling author Dr Jason Fox about his book How to Lead a Quest.

This webinar will teach you how to:

  • Pioneer beyond the realms of convention
  • Lead meaningful progress even if you don’t know what the destination looks like
  • Ensure your business model remains viable
  • Create new value through new, unique and daring methods
  • Dodge the curse of inefficiency
  • Create value and lasting relevance
  • Avoid being too busy for progress
  • Seek clarity rather than wait for it
  • Implement new structures and rituals into your organisation for the future



Scholarships are open to Australian citizens and permanent residents who currently work (in a paid or voluntary role) for a charitable not-for-profit organisation in Australia. Both women and men are welcome to apply for the HerBusiness scholarships.
