Tailored to your needs

The Foundation’s client-specific programs are a powerful tool for industries and organisations wanting to build leadership capacity. They can be tailored to facilitate engagement, build relationships with key partners and, most importantly, bridge differences to find ways of working collaboratively.

Our client-specific programs are adapted to address the leadership development of  organisations, businesses, sectors, regions or communities. The program design is developed in consultation with the client of the stakeholders  to address high priority issues and needs.

How do they work?

Client-specific programs develop leadership skills and frame their use and consolidation within the issue of the client, community, or the stakeholders, commissioning the program.

They expose participants to complex issues in a way that builds understanding, common ground and collaboration. They advance the development of  leadership expertise and capacity which participants can employ within their community, organisation, industry or sector.

They build collaborative networks among those who participate which leverages continued collaboration and problem solving.

The programs may be delivered in one residential block or in a series of modules over 6-12 months, depending on the stakeholders' needs and desired outcomes.
