The Changemakers in Business
Dedicated to Learning Leaders
At Learning Ventures, we believe in leadership and the power it can have to make business move.
Our leadership programs in Australia are highly sought for their ability to inspire and help leaders think differently to make and get the most out of their team.
We offer a spread of different programs and services to give you a comprehensive solution to various aspects of your business, for your role as a leader, future leader and a member of a team.
With 40 years of leadership, learning and developing leaders and teams behind us, Learning Ventures is one of the best leadership development companies in Sydney.
Why is it important to continually learn and develop?
While everyone wants to say that they are ‘the best’ and failure is not an option, the greater reality is that we are all human. A leader that can admit to, work on and grow stronger in the things they don’t know is a highly lucrative asset in any organisation. The best leaders are always learning. A great leader not only looks for opportunities for their own learning but desires and encourages the rest of their team to learn and improve themselves as well.
Why learn at Learning Ventures?
Leadership Consultancy – Learning Ventures is a leadership development consulting firm, and we provide ad hoc leadership coaching face to face, over the phone or via video call. For 30 minutes, you can quickly access a leadership coach when you are facing a tough scenario where you need to make a big decision or confront a member of your team about an issue.
Frontline Leadership Skills – When you have new leaders coming up the ranks it’s important that they not only know how previous leaders before them have handled tasks at hand, or have the specialised knowledge about harnessing people in the organisation to make great decisions. They need to know how to lead. Therefore, with our Leadership Booster course, our prime focus is developing leadership competencies in new and old leaders.
For leaders that already have some history in the company, they can update themselves with new and researched leadership strategies; so that they can best understand how to communicate and manage their team. This may also help them identify when and if something at work is not working, and how to change it.
High potential employee program – It is important to nurture and develop talented high performing workers by giving them opportunities to learn and advance themselves further in their careers. Our Future Leaders Program, #heartLEADER is perfect for this. Dedicated to educating millennials, recent graduates and anyone wanting to better themselves.
Organisational development strategy – Our leadership programs not only help participants in developing leadership competencies, but by inspiring them to think differently with new and research backed ideas. We also take this a step further by helping clients practically implement new organisational development strategies. These strategies help to focus development and with the move to remote and hybrid teams an effective strategy needs to include the new world of work.
What is our different strategy for organisational leadership than other institutes, consulting companies and universities?
Our programs at Learning Ventures are founded on the belief and proven research that learning together is more effective. Therefore, we centre our organisational development strategy around collaborative learning circle theory. Additionally, in order to ensure lasting change, we create a learning ecosystem around the program, strategy or initiative to ensure behaviour change.
On top of our philosophy, at Learning Ventures we are different from other organisational leadership programs because of our:
- A variety of different programs to target leadership and talent management
- High potential employee programs dedicated to developing leadership competencies in future leaders
- Leadership and performance optimising programs that are rolled out over a long span of time
- Boosting connected relationships and proper accountability and support across a remote and hybrid located organisation
- Customisable to fit the brand of your organisation in terms of look, feel, videos and additional learning materials
- Including learning and practising leadership and talent management skills at work
Our Leadership Booster is one of the leading leadership programs in Australia. Instead of a workshop, this program is more of a continuous integrated path of learning with a selection of learning over time, ideally every 2-4 weeks.
This program can be broken down by 4 suites, with 4 different focuses for learning:
- Developing frontline leadership skills
- Optimising performance in your team
- Realising your effectiveness as a leader
- Motivating and challenging your team
We cater other programs targeted at addressing other growing and development needs of an organisation. An example of this is our future leaders program #heartLEADER that helps millennials and other high potential employees learn how they can become the leaders that they want to be.
Learning Ventures are also an award winner for talent development programs. With AITD Awards in both 2016 & 2019 for vastly different clients, as well as a nomination for the AHRI Innovation Award in 2019, our programs are recognized as best practice.
Learning Ventures has garnered a great reputation over the years as one of the most innovative and forward-thinking leadership development companies and leadership development consulting firms.
We have won awards for our leadership skills and talent development programs. Our programs cover different focuses and issues of management, such as:
- Understanding the role of a leader
- Determining and making the most of your natural style of a leader
- Building supportive systems to encourage you and keep you in account
- Motivating and making the most of the talents of your team
- Talking about expectations and motivations with your team
We also offer additional learning materials to strengthen the foundation of your organisation with our monthly Book Club. In this workshop, participants learn about a specific topic of the workplace in detail. This offers a great opportunity to talk about these processes together with the members of your organisation, so that they are as smooth as possible.
For online study, you need a computer, laptop or ipad. Ensure that your device has a working webcam and microphone to stream yourself visually and via audio. As a part of online study, we host live workshops that require participants to appear online. Also try to make sure that you have a quiet and unbusy location for this.
We also provide ad hoc leadership development consulting with our Coach in the Pocket service.
