Heads of Jurisdiction – Leadership Program

The Heads of Jurisdiction – Leadership Program is specifically designed for Chief Justices, Chief Judges, and Chief Magistrates.

The Program is interactive and focuses upon leadership skills and qualities and their practical application. The program will encompass experiential judicial learning principles, enhanced by discussion and exchange of experiences between participants.

Why you should attend this program?

The role and responsibilities of a chief justice, chief judge and chief magistrate are considerable, requiring the management of many relationships, both internal and external. From the role as leader of the court, to functional communications with government, the media and the wider public, the individual chief has a myriad of relational responsibilities to respond and navigate between values, relationships and efficiency.

To that end, the program rationale for 2024 is to provide participants, within this context, the opportunity to consider their impact as a relational leader, managing these relationships in adherence to the values that underpin the judiciary as a public institution.

What will you learn at this program?

By the end of the program, participants will:

  • have an understanding of managing complex environments;
  • be able to unpack their own blind spots and exercise strategies to minimise them;
  • be aware of their own leadership strengths and weaknesses and the embodiment of the HOJ role;
  • be aware of their impact, as a leader, on other members of their court;
  • appreciate the need to harness influence to achieve goals;
  • understand the principles that sustain a strong court culture and environment;
  • have techniques to address the demands of relational management;
  • have identified strategies and skills for influencing and building relationships with key stakeholders;
  • apply skills to foster collegiality and enthusiasm within their court;
  • develop your personal leadership and management capabilities to make an impact and contribute to the effectiveness of your court; and
  • Improve your people management and performance management to increase productivity while respecting judicial independence.

How will these skills help your court?

Leadership is critical to creating a culture of confidence, cooperation, respect and participation. It requires the ongoing honing of core competencies for effective leadership and management, building self-awareness, emotional intelligence and an understanding of personal impact and how to manage change and manage people, all the while dealing with issues fairly using processes that are transparent and fair.
