New principles of effective leadership

Leadership in Australia grew as an important topic more than two decades ago as we entered a global marketplace and started to compete internationally across a range of industries. As the world changes, the more we need to learn, and the stronger our leadership capabilities need to be.

While leaders establish the direction, they also have to use management skills to direct their employees in an easy and effective manner to complete the objectives of leadership.

The capacity to learn new leadership skills and abilities is vital for practically any leader. Swinburne employs methods to enhance your leadership skills, through observation and wisdom. Our leadership and management training courses are constantly evolving as technology advances.

Hear from Dr Terry Lee, one of Australia's foremost leadership specialists and capability builders, as he introduces his great passion: leadership and learning.
