It is hard to imagine how, in such a short time period, people can learn as much as I did. The breadth of my experiences in this program stem from the program concept and the generosity of my leader-in-action - in giving of her time and welcoming me to attend as many events as our busy diaries allowed. (Associate Professor)

I learned that being a leader with a high level of responsibility is really hard work but there is a tremendous energy return from dealing with other bright motivated people. (Associate Professor)

Participating in the program made me realise how important self discipline is (including thorough meeting preparation, staying focussed and plain old hard work). Good working relationships with colleagues (up, down and across) are also important in addressing the very complex issues that arise in an organisation like this. (HEW Level 10+)

The insights into Monash leadership has left me a far more optimistic academic, and I've taken a lot of that bright energy back to my neck of the woods with me. (Associate Professor)

I am now thinking about how I can exercise my leadership in my environment and feel ready to take on new challenges should the opportunity arise. (Professor)

Not only do I feel more "at home" at Monash, but I recognise more clearly what a challenge it is to run a large and successful educational institution, and how vital it is to recognise that strength lies in mutual inter-dependence and respect. (Associate Professor)

I really appreciated being given the opportunity to sit in on a number of higher level committees, to see the thought processes in action which guide not only our successes as a university but also give great consideration to our comfort along the way. (HEW 10+)

The praxis sessions provided the best opportunity I think I’ve ever had in my career to engage with other women and to discuss how we see organisational issues. (HEW 10+)
