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!

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.
