The result has been a direct and positive impact on staff attraction and retention, improved leadership and management skills, and increased networking among the staff right across the business. The live sessions and online material encourage diversity of thinking, promote self-reflection and teamwork.
Helen Lloyd, RSEA Safety, Chief Human Resources Officer
Being a fast-paced and cyclic industry, sustainable leadership practices have helped us navigate challenges and establish a consistent working environment. I attended an ISL study tour where I saw first-hand how businesses can operate in a sustainable and ethical way AND maximise profits.
Damian Lockwood, Director, Lockwood Flooring, Australia
Completing the course provided a real sense of achievement and I attribute this to the content being clear, well organised and the advantage of real time application. The fortnightly cohort call is an opportunity to listen and learn from professionals with similar interests and different industry perspectives.
Clint McKellar, Director of Business at Morgan Stanley
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to create and bolster a workplace culture that is simultaneously more broadly ethical, sustainable and profitable. I found the Sustainable Leadership Foundations course to be well-paced in small, incremental chunks which I was able to fit into my busy schedule.
Magdalena Ball, Head of Research & Innovation at Orica
I’ve loved the course’s learnings and interestingly for me, it has already changed my way of thinking. It got me to reflect on my kind of leadership, the actions I’m taking from the sustainability point of view. I truly enjoyed the Foundations in Sustainable Leadership course.
