XEd Space and the Australian Scholarships Foundation, are partnering to help build capacity in the Australian For-Purpose sector with an exclusive Lead4Success® cohort.

Lead4Success® moves leaders from average to high performing by developing the four fundamental skills (self-awareness, learning agility, influence, and communication) that leaders at any level need to master for success.

The exclusive For-Purpose cohort will be taught as a robust 16-hour online training program representing the essence of the Center for Creative Leadership’s (CCL®) leadership content. This includes:

  • Experiential activities to learn through doing
  • A safe environment for all participants to practice new behaviours
  • Peer-based learning to encourage collaboration and drive engagement
  • Proven leadership models from the top-ranked Center for Creative Leadership.

The Fundamental 4 Skills of Leadership

No matter the intelligence, experience, or drive, four core skills are essential for every leader at every level. The Center for Creative Leadership calls them the Fundamental 4: self-awareness, learning agility, influence, and communication.

The Fundamental 4 have endured the test of time and are the basis for the Lead4Success® program, where participants immerse themselves in development, adapt these skills to their own leadership contexts, participate with peers in learning, and share ideas to apply to their leadership lessons to their real world.
