Learning Brought to Life “Building Leadership Awareness”
6 April, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+10
Before we can become a good leader, we need to ensure that we have a clear understanding of how we appear to others.
This session allows the learner to identify their people style, and to understand how to practically apply this within the workplace to create improved outcomes. The content covered will allow the learner to gain a greater insight to the people style of other team members and how this might work with your own style. In addition to this, learners will explore leadership characteristics, and what the differences are between leadership and management.
This session aims to support the learner to:
- Improve self awareness;
- Understand the people style of others;
- Strengthen their understanding of leadership characteristics;
- Know when to lead, and when to manage; and
- How to apply this information within their team or organisation to improve outcomes relating to task, project or relationships.

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION FOUNDATION
Donate today – Give our most vulnerable children the best start to life!
The Early Childhood Education Foundation strives to ensure that children from families experiencing financial difficulties have access to a funded kindergarten program which will enhance their opportunities to succeed in life. Our mission is to support vulnerable children to attend kindergarten programs to help build their brains and bodies now and set them up for positive health in the future.
Research demonstrates the important role of high-quality early childhood education experiences on children’s development. However, the cost of sending children to a kindergarten program for disadvantaged families and carers is often a barrier to attendance. There are thousands of children across Victoria in need of our support.
Every dollar invested helps our most vulnerable children and assists with breaking the cycle of inter-generational disadvantage.
