Short Course in Positive Leadership

Last week (Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th October), Capricorn Enterprise hosted the first Short Course in Positive Leadership in Rockhampton for local businesses. Contact us to be included on the wait list for the 2019 course, dates to be confirmed. Delivered by Rob Ritchie from Positive Difference, the course showed leaders how to optimise wellbeing, performance and leadership capacity in their workplaces.

This short course is normally only available in capital cities but will be hosted again in Rockhampton in February 2019. Do you have emerging, recently promoted or experienced leaders who are ready to further develop their leadership skills? Positive Difference assists leaders to create more positive work environments by empowering them and their staff with affordable access to comprehensive, professional training. Contact Capricorn Enterprise (email or phone 4927 2055) to be included on the wait list.

Positive Difference assists leaders to create more positive work environments by empowering them and their staff with affordable access to comprehensive, professional training in the scientific principles and practical strategies embraced by the most engaged and resilient individuals, the most positive and productive teams, and the most sustainably purposeful organisations.

The Short Course in Positive Leadership will both affirm and challenge you as you reflect upon how you can become a more positively effective leader. On completion of the course, you can expect to be well equipped with exciting new knowledge, empowering practical strategies, and an invigorated sense of purpose and passion as a positive leader. More important than being an expert, you will be an example that others will want to follow.
