As many of our respected senior leaders reach retirement age, great opportunities abound for our brightest and best new talent to assume formal leadership positions and mould the future of our great education system. Through a broad network of education stakeholders, the National Excellence in Educational Leadership Initiative [NEELI] and the National Excellence in School Leadership Initiative [NESLI] were created to respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by this radical change. Central to the initiative is the roll-out of the Australian Higher Education Sector Leadership Colloquium. The Colloquium is an integrated development framework designed to expedite and consolidate leadership and interpersonal skills across all management and academic staff. Seamlessly contextualised to meet the specific needs of emerging through to senior leaders, the Colloquium framework combines the very best leadership pedagogy from the corporate sector with a deep understanding of contemporary educational environments. We invite current and aspiring leaders throughout Australia s Higher Education sector to consider one of NEELI s internationally renowned programs as a great opportunity to support their leadership journey. Damien Farrell National Director, National Excellence in Educational Leadership Initiative [NEELI] Chief Executive Officer, Australian School of Applied Management [ASAM] This program has helped me significantly and challenged me to improve myself. It made me reassess where I am currently and where I want to be in the future. Craig Jerrard, Durack Institute of Technology 3 What is the Australian Higher Education Sector Leadership Colloquium? The Australian Higher Education Sector Leadership Colloquium is a collaboration orientated development program focusing on the critical dimensions of effective leadership and interpersonal communication. The program equips participants with the insights, skills and confidence to accelerate their own development as they simultaneously strengthen the performance of their teams and their organisations. Delivered over an extended ten-month period to ensure minimal disruption to participants workload, the program combines rich, multi-media presentations with user-friendly toolkits delivered via a cutting edge online learning platform. Colloquium participants will participate in a series of highly interactive online learning experiences, sharing their journey with like-minded peers across the country. In addition to delivering high level professional development, the program sets out to create powerful, life-long professional networks. Throughout the Colloquium, learnings are constantly related back to the day-to-day realities and challenges of each participant within their workplace context. Furthermore, participants are constantly prompted to reflect on the content and themes in three distinct ways; how the concepts addressed directly impact their performance and capability, how they can be extended to enhance the performance of their team members and how they can be adapted to offer broader organisational benefits and alignment. Approaching learning outcomes in this way ensures participants are equipped with both the theoretical knowledge and the adaptive skills to create genuinely sustainable outcomes for themselves and their organisation long after the program concludes.
