The Ignite Programme has been designed to provide new or aspiring managers; supervisors or team leaders with the necessary skills to manage and lead themselves and their team.

Through interactive workshops, this programme provides the tools, insights and hands-on experience to take on the responsibility of leading a team with greater confidence. As the programme brings together local government officers from around the state, participants also get the opportunity to learn from each other and to build support networks for their local government careers.

The programme kicks off with a two day introductory forum that focuses on raising self-awareness; identifying the type of leader they are and aspire to be; and provides specific tools for changing their style of communicating with their manager, peers and team members. The other four days of the programme are spaced over a 4-5 month period. Participants continue to develop their own self-awareness and the impact their beliefs, attitudes and behaviours have on the way they communicate and manage people.

During the course of Ignite, participants will:

  • Develop the critical skills and competencies required to successfully lead and manage teams and support their transition from team player to successful team leader;
  • Refine any skill gaps by working with qualified professional development coaches;
  • Define the goals and expectations of their role though direct consultation with their manager;
  • Improve the critical interpersonal skills for engaging and leading people; and
  • Improve their own self-awareness.

The involvement of the participants’ manager is a critical factor in creating tangible outcomes in the workplace. Managers are involved throughout the programme through structured progress reporting, a 360 degree feedback survey and involvement in one of the workshops.
