Our leadership model

The LEAD-Q Leadership Program is an evidence-based and competency driven process of individual leadership development. Focused on building individual capability to lead and manage both people and processes, the program draws from psychological concepts to highlight the importance of transformational leadership.

LEAD-Q is supported by a comprehensive competency matrix which provides direction and allows leaders to measure their progress. Competencies have been mapped to AITSL Leadership Profiles and Workforce Capability Success Profiles, and outline how to unlock leaders’ potential to perform at the highest level.

LEAD-Q Dimension Measures a leader’s ability to:
Adaptability Adapt with ease to changing circumstances by responding effectively when confronted with changes and thriving in the face of uncertainty.
Authenticity Forge authentic relationships by displaying awareness of one’s own motives and intentions, and using these to guide actions towards others.
Drive Act with conviction by creating challenging goals and actively pursuing these with intention, focus and energy.
Influence Transform others’ attitudes and actions by creating an inspiring vision, demonstrating behaviour in line with that vision, and challenging individuals’ current perspectives to stimulate new thinking and behaviour.
Innovation Lead for innovation by identifying opportunities for improvement, generating creative ideas, and transforming these into innovative solutions that push past current boundaries.
Resilience Be resilient in the face of challenge by using effective coping strategies and leveraging the resources necessary to withstand job demands and recover from adverse work situations.
Thinking Make strategic decisions by using complex reasoning skills to critically assess the situation, judge the available alternatives, and make effective forward-thinking decisions.
Positivity Approach work from a positive perspective to demonstrate engagement in one’s own work and to create an effective working environment for others.
