2019 Health Sector Leadership Program

The Health Sector Leadership Program (HSLP) is a specialised program for nominated health professionals who are ready to start their leadership journey. The experts at Leadership Victoria will deliver a series of workshops, covering four key leadership attributes:

  • Ethics
  • Communications
  • Managing Change (Influence)
  • Managing Change (Resilience).

This highly interactive program is distinguished by:

  • Insights from senior leaders who will share their experiences and real-life examples
  • Applied learning activities such as the Harvard peer consultation process to enable participants to apply their learning to real leadership dilemmas in their work setting
  • Use of the Strength Deployment Inventory profiling tool to help participants understand their own leadership and communication style, as well as how to leverage their strengths when relating to others
  • Group discussions and exploration of case studies
  • Pre-reading materials including thought leadership articles and/or media links on each topic
  • A strong peer support and networking focus, complemented by an opt-in mentoring component in which participants are matched with experienced mentors from other sectors.
