Overview

BSB50420 Diploma of Leadership and Management

Exceptional communication skills are one of the key attributes of our great leaders. Leaders and managers need to be able to effectively communicate with both their team and external stakeholders in order to deliver results for their organisations.

While leaders must plan and monitor the work of others, it is important to do so in a way that gives team members confidence in their abilities and shows trust in staff.

Management teams must lead with innovative and challenging ideas that inspire their team to achieve organisational goals.

At this level you:

  • Apply your practical skills to complex leadership skills in the workplace
  • Have generalist management skills that allow you to effectively manage across multiple departments
  • Display initiative and judgement
  • Monitor the workloads of others as well as your own
  • Provide solutions to unpredictable problems
  • Are responsible for a whole range of outcomes in your organisation

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who apply knowledge, practical skills and experience in leadership and management across a range of enterprise and industry contexts.

Individuals at this level display initiative and judgement in planning, organising, implementing and monitoring their own workload and the workload of others. They use communication skills to support individuals and teams to meet organisational or enterprise requirements.

They may plan, design, apply and evaluate solutions to unpredictable problems, and identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources.

Testimonial

“I am impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by your organisation, I deal with a number of RTO’s, probably too much and from time to time see the not so good side of them.

Just refreshing to deal with your company and to be treated so well along the whole process. I would also like to thank the trainer who conducted the course and made it enjoyable and interesting. Your professionalism is noted.”
