ANZSOG’s Towards Strategic Leadership Program (TSL) is a unique two-week program that helps emerging public service leaders to develop the qualities needed to thrive in a senior executive role: a strategic outlook, political astuteness, personal resilience and the capacity to reflect and learn continuously.
TSL is not your average leadership program. With innovative and respected program co-directors Paul ‘t Hart and Robbie Macpherson at the helm, TSL creates a dynamic forum which combines non-traditional learning methods, such as extensive individual and group-based reflection and real-world case studies, with reflection opportunities, experiential learning and critical thinking.
Across two one-week modules, TSL creates an environment where learning can happen that cannot take place in a work context filled with day-to-day pressure or a conventional classroom setting.
TSL is the ideal program for public sector executives, such as Directors and Branch Managers, and those who have moved from an operational to a strategic leadership role in a government or not-for-profit organisation.
With a keen focus on personal reflection, TSL is designed to provide experienced public sector managers with a defined sense of purpose, a stronger sense of self and the ability to recognise and manage urgent and important tasks within their department and the larger public administration setting.
As in most ANZSOG courses, participants are viewed as co-contributors to the program – an integral ingredient to the course’s success. TSL harnesses the knowledge and experience of the participants who, as professional peers, share a common language and a commitment to public service.
The entire program is run under Chatham House Rule.
