In-depth Learning Session A:

Building leadership capabilities to advance your career

This one day workshop will have you dive deep into some universal human behaviours to help you to understand why we do the things we do. Not only will you have a better understanding of yourself and the key to making more resourceful choices, you will also begin to understand and appreciate why others do as they do, and how you can play a bigger part as a successful influencer and leader.

Layering on that throughout the afternoon, the session will look at the evolution of self and the different levels of thinking displayed and required at each stage. There will be some in-depth conversation around how this plays out in different working environments and again how understanding these models and human behaviours can completely change how you think, act and engage with those around you.

Those in attendance will be leaders and up and coming managers from all industries across Australia’s tech sector.
