Moving up the career ladder into a managerial role should be an exciting time in your life. However, sometimes this transition may be met with fear and sense of overwhelming responsibility. Without any formal management support, ‘accidental managers’ are often left to sink or swim.

Whether you are a seasoned supervisor, a newly promoted manager or a mid-career leader, the Foundations of Leadership program is designed to develop techniques to lead a productive, motivated and engaged team.

To understand what kind of leader and manager you are, and want to be, you must start with self-awareness. The Foundations program begins with 3 different tools designed to help you understand how you work and what kind of personality you are.
Through self assessment, DiSC informs communication style, decision making tendencies and preferred working environments.
Genos measures how well you demonstrate emotionally intelligent leadership competencies in your role.
Gain insightful feedback on attributes that are critical to management and leadership best practice, based on IML ANZ’s Manage and Lead Competency Framework.
The first module introduces you to becoming an intentional leader. This module develops new capabilities required to execute new responsibilities, including operating to new managerial time frames, managing changes in working relationships, making a behavioural and value-based transition to a leadership role, and enabling others to grow and perform.
To map the development journey to your experience, your leadership, behavioural and EQ competencies will be measured through IML 360, DiSC and Genos analytics tools.
This module builds your skills on managing your new role as a leadership professional, including time management, decision-making, problem solving, and project management. The unit shapes a foundation for a continuous cycle of professional development, the cornerstone of progression and growth in your leadership journey.
This module is focused on equipping you with workplace communication skills to effectively correspond with people at all levels of the organisation – your staff, manager, executive leadership team and board.
This module is centred around developing your skills to enable the team to succeed and perform as a unit. Skills such as building teams, nurturing different personalities, motivating and engaging groups, and coaching for team success will be covered.
The most difficult shift from specialist to leader is the new task of managing your peers. Module 4 provides practical knowledge on navigating teams, how to manage performance, managing conflicts and communicating to the individual’s needs.
The final module focuses on the long-term goal of your leadership journey, equipping you with skills to manage and lead a business. This unit introduces the “how” to developing organisation’s strategy, managing the business’ vision, identifying risks and managing finances and operational plans.
IML ANZ’s exclusive mentoring program provides an ideal opportunity for ongoing development after the completion of the program. A mentor is matched based on experience and individual learning goals, and works with you for the next 4 months.
