Career Opportunities

Management is immensely satisfying career path. When you’ve got management responsibilities, you’ve also got opportunities to change the future of the organisation you’re working in. Drive improvements in the organisation’s bottom line. Shape your team members’ careers. Influence your peers and colleagues to change the way things get done.

Upon completing this course, there are a variety of career paths you can take.


Key opportunities include:

Your career in management could take you places you wouldn’t have ever dreamed of. That’s because managers are needed in all different industries, at various levels, in (real and virtual) locations around the world.

The Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management is designed for managers who crave fresh perspective on the work they’re doing. And new managers who want to start out with the right skills, habits and practices. It’s incredibly practical, packed with real-world exercises and plenty of chances to apply what you’ve learned to real life challenges. When you graduate, you’ll take away more than just a piece of paper. You’ll leave equipped with resources, texts and planning frameworks you can use for the rest of your career.

Pathways

The next level of qualification up from an advanced diploma is a bachelor degree. If you want to step up your learning, you may want to apply for a degree course once you’ve finished. Possibilities include a Bachelor of Business or a Bachelor of Management. Your choice will depend on the type of management work you’re doing, and the sector you’re focused on.

"Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from."
– Seth Godin

I started off my career in the Banking sector, with experience in lending and securities. I then spent over 20 years in the Royal Australian Air Force as a Logistics Officer and later specialised in Education and Training, where I was a trainer, assessor and executive.

In 2007, I established a private business as a consultant, specialising in Leadership, Management, Business and Professional Development training. I have qualifications in HR, Management, Leadership, Coaching, Warehousing, Transport and Logistics, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Advanced Facilitation. I also trained in Professional Mentoring, Workplace and Leadership Coaching,  Counselling and Conflict Management and underwent undergrad studies in Human Resources.

What gets me out of bed in the morning?

I am passionate about life and getting the most out of it. That doesn’t mean filling every moment with activity, but enjoying where I am, what I’m doing and who I’m with. I also live for weekends, where I spend it exploring, listening to and making music, camping, flying aircraft, playing with my Staffy, named Harper Cookie Face, and enjoying my family. Seeing and helping people develop is also one of my greatest passions.
