The GCG Leadership Development Foundational Program was launched in June 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. We recognised that our team would likely be experiencing a range of challenges and emotions as a result of the pandemic, and wanted to support them in navigating these uncertain times. Our focus was on empowering our team leaders with the skills to successfully lead their teams through difficult circumstances and beyond.
The Program is aligned to a broader GCG Leadership Development Framework which outlines key competencies for leaders across GCG related to Personal, Interpersonal, Technical, Business and Leadership areas of application.
The Program focuses on six crucial leadership areas namely:
- Emotional Intelligence
- Building Teamwork & Collaboration
- Driving Accountability, and
Each session required participants to engage in some pre-learning and self-reflection, which was followed by a workshop where everyone had the opportunity to discuss the topic with their colleagues, with the aim of building leadership capabilities in each of the key areas.
All GCG Leaders from Occupational Hygiene, WHS and Support Services participated in and successfully completed the program. In the final session, participants provided a powerful presentation to the Senior Management Team about their learnings from the course and their individual leadership journeys thus far. The Program has set the foundation for future ongoing leadership training at GCG.
