In the Lead is a program for senior nursing and midwifery leaders who want to build their leadership and managerial capabilities.

The program uses a systems and personal perspective helping leaders to improve management of their department/unit, their staff and themselves.

The 12 month program includes:

  • workshops
  • webinars
  • a 360° survey
  • a coaching session
  • a leadership improvement project


The program teaches senior nursing and midwifery managers to: 

  • build their leadership capabilities
  • develop their collaborative skills with their LHD/SNs resulting in improved patient outcomes
  • improve their awareness of the industrial environment within the health system
The program is linked to the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework and uses the capabilities as the base for the workshop topics, webinar topics and 360° survey.
Past participants have listed the mix of activities, discussion and networking as some of the program highlights.
