"Take the Lead 2" (ttl2) is a customised program designed specifically for nursing and midwifery unit managers and nursing and midwifery managers who manage clinical unit/s or ward/s. This program will run over 2 years with a total of 5 face to face days (Sydney based) and monthly collaborative coaching, information and teaching webinars (online interactive sessions). The webinars will be an opportunity for networking and will also serve to build communities of practice and action learning sets.

The program aims to increase the manager’s knowledge of managing for performance and will assist in transforming themselves and their units into high performing teams.

The program is designed so that participants can practice the skills they have learned when they return to their ward/unit.

The format of the 2 year program is depicted below:
