Karen Gee, General Manager, Business Technology Services Capability at Telstra had this to say about the program:
“The Executive Ready Program is so good, so impactful and so applicable that I am recommending it to our whole business. Eleven staff are confirmed to undertake the program this financial year, and another eleven are on a wait list. The course provides tangible techniques, tools and tips to excel at the leadership role you are in. But the most beneficial aspect of this program is the networking and learning with peers from different industries.
“Regardless of which industry you are in, the types of leadership challenges you are faced with are very similar. By sharing and exploring these with your fellow program participants, you become very connected to the course content and can easily contextualise learnings to your day-to-day activities. The peer coaching is also a big part of how successful this process is. If you are thinking about doing this program, my advice is quite simple – go for it.”
