“When I reflect now on the training, I hope I became a better leader, but for sure, I became a better person. I see life somewhat different now.” Igor Knežević, Participant

How it works

You will develop your authentic strengths through a 'leadership-in-context' experience. Think, Innovation Sprint meets next generation professional development.

  • We partner with charities and social enterprises who are doing incredible things in the community.
  • We find their most strategic board-level challenge that they need help with and we gather incredible people like you who want to learn by solving real problems. Then the magic happens!
  • Through a series of workshops, guest speakers and top coaches, solutions emerge and are pitched back to the charity who choose at least 1 solution to implement.
  • As we are a social enterprise ourselves, we give 10% of our profits back to the charity as a kickstarter fund to implement their idea.
  • We hear back from the charity within 6 months on what happened, what the impact was and what they learned.
  • You join an elite group of alumni who have completed this experience and get a LinkedIn referral from the CEO of the charity as well as access to ongoing events and resources.

  • What you’ll learn

    You’ll learn how to find your feet fast working within a brand new team, made up of a diverse mix of personalities. We’ll equip you with influencing, problem-solving and coaching skills, and help you discover your distinct strengths as a leader. Each of you will also receive 1:1 coaching to help you achieve personal and group milestones.

    Our promise

    We’ll be applying the best thinking from leading organisations around the world to get you ready for successful leadership, fast. You’ll be digging deep to understand your own leadership style, and working with inspiring leaders to develop skills which will positively impact your future in a multitude of ways.

    “The Greater Collective appealed to me because we were both making a real difference as a group and learning about ourselves. I actually think that they did a really good job of allowing you to do both those things.” Lauren Placks, participant
