Middle Leaders Program – Online


Middle Leaders Program – Online



The Middle Leaders Program focuses on transformational leadership and is built on the key drivers of; Lead People, Manage Process, and Drive Results. The program incorporates leadership skills that build people and culture, authentic leadership processes and systems, and highly effective communication and conflict resolution skills. The program defines the difference between a leader and manager and outlines how to develop and implement a shared vision and goals for your team, while fostering a positive and collaborative team culture that supports innovation and improvement. Middle Leaders will be equipped to establish psychological safety to build authentic trust and the strategy to take their team beyond compliance.



Every leader faces many challenges and opportunities in their work, the most common being when they feel stuck in operational, task-driven work that prevents them from thinking strategically about priorities, change and implementation.

Additionally, leaders are required to balance multiple roles and operate effectively across multiple teams, which can create competing demands and expectations, and requires them to communicate confidently and effectively with various stakeholders, including staff, students, parents and community.

Then there is the need to use data effectively to lead learning and improvement in your school – sometimes while also dealing with conflict and resistance from some staff members who are reluctant to change or adopt new practices.

How can you overcome these challenges and maintain focus on what is important and build a culture of shared accountability amongst your staff? How can you get a robust, balanced understanding of your personal leadership strengths and areas of opportunity?


The Middle Leaders Online Program is specifically designed to equip leaders with the skills and knowledge to lead with confidence and impact.  Through completion of the program, you will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to:

  • Strengthen understanding of self and others
