LUnch with jennifer witheriff and uq business school scholarship launch

It’s likely that over the course of our careers, each of us has experienced a person who uses their fancy title to call the shots, but who we wouldn’t really consider to be a great leader.  Equally, it’s likely we’ve worked with someone who holds no leadership title, but who still manages to galvanise, motivate, and drive a team to achieve great outcomes.  Why?  Because being a great leader has little to do with your title, and everything to do with the things you practice every day to influence the people around you.

Whether you hold a leadership role or not, demonstrating good leadership skills is essential to building strong relationships, increasing team engagement, and boosting productivity in your team and organisation.  During this session Organisational Development Consultant, Jennifer Witheriff, will explore the qualities and behaviours that lend themselves to authentic leadership, with some practical takeaways you can begin implementing as soon as you get back to work.

We will also be launching and opening applications to our UQ Business School Scholarships. We are very fortunate to have some exceptional opportunities available to our members. The scholarships we have on offer include:

  • 1 place in the Leadership for Executive Women Course valued at $5,273 + GST
  • 2 places in one of 4 short courses valued between $925 + GST to $2,250 + GST
