Are you part of a senior executive team wanting to improve your organisation’s leadership skills and culture? 

Our Leadership Gateway program can support your organisation to build leadership capability and address strategic challenges.

What is Leadership Gateway?

Leadership Gateway is an executive team leadership and workplace culture development program. It offers individual rural and regional health services, or health services working in partnership, the opportunity to work together, with specialised support, to strengthen collective leadership. The program is tailored to the needs of your health service and will help you deliver measurable improvements in priority areas.

Why apply?

It will build your organisation’s executive capability to:

  • strengthen clinical governance
  • build executive leadership capability and team performance
  • foster workplace cultures that drive improvements in safety, effectiveness and person-centred care 
  • enhance consumer engagement and patient experience
  • promote collaboration and peer learning enabling health executives, senior clinicians and key stakeholders to drive system-wide changes.

How does it work?

Starting in mid-June, the program will run for 12 months.

If successful your health service will need to:

  • identify specific challenges you would like to address through the program
  • Identify participants for the program, including executives, quality managers and other suitable representatives
  • establish individual and team program goals and measures of success
  • gain support from your board
  • commit to making an in-kind contribution for venue, catering and participant costs
  • nominate internal facilitators to be trained in the program methods to support and sustain the work of the program
  • participate in workshop-style peer learning sessions.
