Mastering Management

About the program

The LGPro Mastering Management Program is designed to equip forward-thinking managers with the skills, knowledge and mindset to lead with confidence and capability to effectively manage the uncertainty, complexity and competing agendas in the Local Government sector.  

This highly engaging program sets out to improve the awareness and management capability of participants with a focus on three core development areas: 
Developing Personal Excellence – leading Self
Developing your People – the value of others  
Managing in Local Government – leading within your organisation 

This program will explore various leadership styles and theories, as well as issues and challenges related to concepts associated with leadership. It will also look at individuals, groups, teams, and partnerships, and how they interact in different contexts to address professional and community issues, and how qualities of leadership can occur to bring about progressive and transformational change at the local (team) and Council level.
Learners will be exposed to a variety of discussion, debate and research delivered by a range of presenters including sector and non-sector thought leaders – to both challenge the status quo, inspire critical thinking and different approaches to operating as leaders.

"Getting back to online learning was a big challenge at first but LGPro and Suzana are doing a great job! I like the fact that the classes are once a fortnight, short in duration and all the resources are available online; this definitely keeps me engaged. The best part is the guest speakers and it gives us some amazing real life examples coming straight from an experienced professional. I am learning a lot – thanks to the LGPro team".
