Nous and ASAM launch Leading Through Adversity program


Leaders are in the midst of the greatest leadership challenge they have faced. The way that they adapt and respond during the COVID-19 crisis will shape how their organisations fare through this crisis.

In response to this unprecedented time, Nous, in partnership with the Australian School of Applied Management (ASAM), has developed a virtual learning program to support leaders to effectively respond and rapidly develop the capability to lead in a new way.

Leading Through Adversity

About the program:

The Leading Through Adversity program is designed to take minimum time for maximum impact. It is delivered over four short, high impact modules that address practical strategies for leaders in their current reality. Each module consists of one 90 minute live webinar supported by pre/post learning, with small cohorts (25) to foster rich dialogue and learning.

Key focus areas:

The program has been designed around the following priorities:

  • Rapidly accelerating capability to shape culture and support people virtually
  • Devolving governance and providing quality data so that decision making is moved as close to the issues as possible
  • Building trust through clear, transparent, multi-way conversations
  • Lifting up to think through how to build capability and capacity for the future while adapting to new ways of working
  • Collaborating to resolve new problems quickly
  • Reflecting on adaptive capacity (self and organisation) and client needs.

As part of the Leading Through Adversity program, participants will:

  • solve real challenges that make a difference to your organisation
  • collaborate in real time with other leaders facing similar challenges – either in public or in-house cohorts
  • be guided by a faculty of experts including leaders who have led through crises before
  • have options to engage in facilitated peer group coaching to support, challenge thinking and hold each other to account.

Program delivery

In-house programs can be delivered at a pace that suits the client – e.g. we can deliver the course in an accelerated (1 week) or spaced (4 weeks) timeline. Our tandem facilitation approach with Nous and ASAM involves an expert virtual learning facilitator hosting alongside an experienced leader and subject matter expert.
