Leadership Rises To The Top

The landscape of Australian and global business continues to change dramatically a mixing pot of some of the most unprecedented factors in post war times. The global financial crisis, climate change pressures, technological advances and according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics an aging workforce with 80% of people aged over 50 by 2018.

Business leaders are under intense pressure to perform, plan resourcing, cut costs, deliver more with less all whilst continuing to deliver shareholders outstanding results. They are required to be original in their approach, visionary in uncertain times, adaptable in the face of constant change and most importantly pioneer the way to a better future. Great leadership is a hot commodity!

One of Google's newest sites "Zeitgeist" graphically depicts users' internet searches and is considered indicative of the 'general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era. It declares that in the 12 months to April 2010 the interest in leadership courses has shifted positively 50 points to a record high since 2004.

Another indicator that the demand for Leadership up skilling is on the rise is the number of applications for the Masters of Business Administration Course long regarded as the holy grail of management and leadership courses. According to Business Week it is continuing its surge in popularity after the incredible boom in global applications between 2007-2009.

So how does the business world ensure that leaders stay at the top in this unique climate? By ensuring today's and tomorrows leaders and managers are skilled in every facet of leadership.

Key elements include:

› leading people
› negotiation
› strategic thinking
› project management
› financial analysis
