CHC62015 Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management

Overview

This qualification reflects the role of workers who are middle managers or managers across a range of community sector organisations who work independently and report to executive management, directors or boards of management. At this level, workers have responsibility for planning and monitoring service delivery, recruitment and performance management of other workers, managing risk and contributing to continuous improvement.

The Institute specialises in professional education that promotes positive social, professional and personal relationships. The Institute’s multidisciplinary approach to Social Relations draws upon the disciplines of psychology, sociology and anthropology; examining from different angles, how people organise and make meaning of the worlds in which they live.

We understand that leadership is a key ingredient of change. Enabling leaders to reflect upon and understand their social relations are core skills for effective human service managers. Underpinning these capacities is the openness to reflect on one’s own behaviour and motivations as well as seek to understand feelings, behaviours and motivations of others.

Our Advanced Diploma will draw from the notion of the learning organisation developed by Peter Senge (1990). Senge’s framework offers participants an approach to their personal learning and the learning of colleagues and staff that embraces limitations, problems and conflicts as learning opportunities.

Our training will complement the learning organisation framework with the situational leadership model which assists leaders when determining what leadership behaviour is required.

The organisation learning framework combined with the situational leadership framework provide a simple but appropriate foundation for new, emerging and established leaders that genuinely supports leadership effectiveness. These models underpinned by the development of emotional intelligence offer an understanding of leadership that is effective, humble and able to inspire others.
