Ideal for mid-level professionals, Rising takes you on a 6-month journey that fosters new thinking and perspectives on leadership. Participants explore who they are as leaders, build on their strengths, and discover how to take on greater leadership roles.

You will explore a variety of themes through dynamically structured group discussions and learn from Western Australia’s most qualified and insightful leaders across private, community and government sectors. Each Rising cohort is carefully curated by Leadership WA to ensure diversity of thought and experience across multiple sectors.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify and build on your existing strengths
  • Improve your ability to influence, persuade and make an impact
  • Gain confidence and capacity to negotiate complex leadership challenges
  • Create networks to achieve results
  • Develop a clear understanding of how to motivate and inspire people and teams to achieve performance goals
  • Increase your ability to drive sustainable change
  • Understand who you are as a leader and what motivates you
  • Discover how to take on leadership roles
  • Identify tools and strategies to coach and provide feedback to others

These learnings are consolidated through a community project, which supports a WA-based not-for-profit.

Alumni Network

Following completion of the Program you join a strong and influential network of Leadership WA Alumni. This network comes together regularly to continue to grow and learn, and to give back by contributing expertise and time to social impact activities across WA, making real and meaningful difference in the community.
