Leadership is a pivotal value of the IPS team: we know that the key to success is to lead the way by carving out the changes you want to see in the world.
As part of our ongoing work in the leadership field, we are offering an Emerging Leaders Development Program, beginning in July 2018, for budding leaders.
What makes a good leader?
Leaders aren’t just found at the CEO level – they exist in every facet of an organisation, bringing people together, tapping into everyone’s specific skills to develop positive outcomes.
Good leaders empower their teams and networks: they find ways to help people succeed. Good leadership gives people a common purpose, and measurable results: increased sales, staff satisfaction and repeat business.
Why is leadership important to IPS?
IPS wants to develop the leadership skills of people in small business, because we know that those leadership skills will not only assist their business, but develop their own personal leadership - which has an impact on the rest of the community in which they work.
We value opportunities to bring out emerging and future leaders at every level, because a good leader empowers others to succeed.
As part of our work, we’ve produced a series of Leadership video interviews with community leaders designed to highlight the work of individuals across the country and start a conversation about what good leadership is.
IPS have previously worked with local businesses including Shire of Capel, Val Lishman Foundation, Southern Cross Austereo and Perkins Builders to build leadership within their teams.
These programs have provided theory and practical tools for team members to take back into their workplaces, build their leadership skills, and influence what is happening in their business.
Participants have gone on to take on new projects, communicate with their work colleagues more effectively, and identify areas for improvement within their business that impacted their results.
A good leader understands their purpose, their people, and their product - and how to harness each of these to create the results you want.
The Emerging Leaders Development Program will unpack each of these elements over six months. Facilitated by experts in areas such as leadership, marketing, and business development, this program will help you to develop valuable skills and knowledge to be an effective and influential leader now and into the future.
Commencing 25 July 2018 in the IPS Bunbury Office – Contact Bernadette Durrell on 08 9721 7057.
