Queensland Education Sector

Starting Term 3

High Performance Leadership Program


The High Performance Leadership program is specifically tailored for the Education Industry and uses Leading Teams models of leadership and team development to equip participants with the understanding and practical tools required to be a high performing leader within their organisation.


This program is suitable for individuals that wish to develop their leadership skills in a supportive yet challenging environment. This program is ideally suited for Deputies, Heads of Department (teaching or administative) or Team Leaders.

Program Delivery

The High Performance Leadership program comprises five full days of interactive workshops.

Day 1 will be in Term 3 (specific date to be confirmed). The composition of subsequent sessions will run across Term 3 and 4 and will be agreed between members of the group on Day 1.

The delivery of the program is flexible, with sessions tailored to address the specific needs of the participants.

Program Environment

High Performance Leadership is a program of practical and experiential learning, delivered by Leading Teams’ expert facilitators.

As well as offering a learning opportunity, the program creates a forum for the discussion of leadership and the creation of peer networks among the group. Participants will reflect on their individual leadership practice to identify areas for development. They will have the opportunity to apply the tools and models to their leadership practice between sessions and discuss the outcomes at the next meeting.

All sessions involve the discussion of workplace matters raised by program participants. This real-life, action-based learning approach enables the sharing of experiences and ideas between group members and fosters strong networks and relationships that will deliver genuine workplace improvement.

  • Leading Teams challenged me to reflect on my leadership. Our facilitator are aware that for me the ability to form relationships with the staff is the key.

    I always kept coming back to the question of how to get the best out of firstly the staff in Senior & Middle leadership & secondly the teaching staff. As for any long term success has to have the majority of the staff feeling valued & on the “bus”.
