Discover your enterprising leadership style

About Leadership Discovery

Leadership Discovery is a 6 month program co-designed with UniSA colleagues to provide a highly practical and experiential learning experience to strengthen UniSA leadership capability. 

Leadership Discovery includes workshops, an opportunity to work with a coach, access to a broad range of contemporary leadership resources, and to hear and learn from some of UniSA's outstanding leaders across the University.

Learning outcomes:

  • Explore the UniSA leadership expectations and how individual actions, behaviours and language can impact leadership legacy, team performance and collective leadership impact on UniSA strategic ambitions.
  • Establish strong collaborative connections with peers from across the university to strengthen leadership insights and build effective networks to respond with agility on potential opportunities.
  • To build a shared understanding of our strategic aspirations and how through shared learning and collaboration we can build a trusting, collaborative and collegiate environment within and across the university and with our external partners.
  • Enhance participant’s emotional intelligence to expand their personal effectiveness, political navigation, and leadership impact.
  • Enable leaders to understand how to navigate performance conversations to enhance the potential, contribution, and performance of others.
  • Explore how to make impactful Enterprising decisions that balance multiple stakeholder perspectives, consider operational and sector context and align to UniSA ambitions and commitments.
