March 2020 update: The Community Colleges Australia (CCA) 2020 CEO coaching and mentoring program has re-opened for additional program participants from member organisations. CEOs or other senior staff may find working with a professional executive coach to be valuable at this time of unprecedented stress organisational governance, leadership and management challenges. Please contact Don Perlgut to express interest in this program.
The purpose of the 2020 CEO coaching program is to:
- Ensure that new CCA member CEOs have access to assistance and guidance to assist them in “navigating the shoals” of being a community education provider CEO, including how to obtain maximum value from the CCA’s member network;
- Assist CCA member CEOs to do their jobs well, supporting them to operate strategically, respond to new business challenges and manage/lead their organisations effectively;
- Assist CCA member CEOs in skill-building (professional development) where they may have gaps in their abilities, backgrounds and experiences; and
- Ensure sustainable adult and community college (ACE) organisations by strengthening their leadership capabilities, managerial foresight and financial health.
The 2020 CCA CEO coaching program is funded under the ACE Programs, Teaching and Leadership Program by the NSW Department of Education. The 2019-2020 ACE Teaching and Leadership Program is aligned to the Department’s priority to improve adult and community education outcomes.
