Presented by Professor Ethan Bernstein, Harvard Business School

In an era when the nature of work is changing, Professor Bernstein studies the impact of workplace transparency—the observability of employee activities, routines, behaviours, output, and/or performance—on productivity, with implications for leadership, collaboration, organisation design, and new forms of organising.

In this program developed for non-profit leaders Professor Bernstein examines Innovative People Practices for Non-Profit Success.

Throughout the course, you will explore avenues to strengthen the practices to build your teams. We will learn through case studies the best practices of for-profit organisations.

Take this opportunity to step away from your day-to-day responsibilities and look at your situation through a new lens with world-class faculty alongside a diverse network of accomplished executive peers. Immerse yourself in this proven learning experience and develop a broader perspective of the challenges facing your organisation and your leadership capabilities.

Both days of this program start at 8am for participants to arrive for an 8.30am sharp start.

Who should attend

The program is aimed at CEOs and senior leaders of charitable not-for-profit organisations or social enterprises. The organisations they lead must, in the opinion of HCA, generally fit one or more of the following criteria:

• has a charitable, community-public benefit or poverty relief purpose, as indicated by whether the NFP has Australian Tax Office TCC and/or DGR status, or “registered charity” status.
• is a social enterprise or business (organisations using a business model to provide a social benefit) and which may not have TCC/DGR.
• other organisations with a community or public benefit purpose (generally evidenced by a “formal” governance structure, voluntary participation by members and independence from government) that do not fit the above categories.
