WILD about wellbeing leadership: YOUR Comprehensive Development Program
WILD is an intensive leadership program, designed to broaden and deepen the necessary wellbeing skills and knowledge you need to foster engagement, motivation, and high performance.
Delivered as a highly practical, multi-modal 6-month leadership development course, we focus on real-world examples and interactive learning activities that help you to build your capability and confidence. This program is based on the many presentations we’ve given to leaders of all levels, the work we do with wellbeing professionals every day, and robust evidence on what works.
You’ll complete this program in a cohort, building connections with other leaders across industries. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences and share knowledge as well.
The learning experience will be a mix of LIVE online interactive workshops, resource materials with tools, and peer group support. You’ll receive a ROW WILD Certificate of Completion at the end of the course, confirming your involvement.
Your awesome learning experience
Our learning program is designed around six comprehensive learning modules that form the main component of the program.
Each module is centred around a live online two-hour workshop focused on facilitated learning, practical activities, and setting up peer group meetings and individual action learning assignments for the next session.
Participants are assigned a peer group at the beginning of the program to support and guide their learning. These groups are encouraged to meet monthly online. The discussions during these sessions are focused on the content from the relevant module and linked to the individual action learning assignment. Additionally, each group submits a record of the main discussion points, which is an essential requirement for the certificate of completion.
Individual action learning assignments are an integral part of our learning program, supporting practical application of the module content into day-to-day leadership. Participants have the opportunity to practice skills and knowledge and reflect on their progress, with some components of the learning assignments to be submitted for the certificate of completion.
To support our participants’ learning journey, we also provide additional resources such as curated videos, podcasts, guides, and more through our ROW Gold library. Join us today and take the first step towards becoming a more effective and impactful leader.

In the unlikely event you are not able to attend five, please contact us and we can work this through with you on a case-by-case basis. Exceptions to the Certificate commitments are solely at our discretion.

We appreciate that things sometimes get in the way. The peer discussion sessions are an essential part of the WILD program experience, and we do ask that you attend as many of these as you can.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT LEARNING WITH ROW
I did want to drop a line through to say a huge thank you for your time and the session with us, after you left we ended up discussing the topic until well after 6pm and it was just awesome. The whole team took so much from it and really valued your time – thank you so, so much. Worth absolutely every cent.
That was the best professional development opportunity I have attended since starting here at UC. The quality of the content and the delivery was exceptional. A significant reflection moment for me about many concepts covered, it really was amazing – having openly experienced a ‘spectacular burn out’ myself last year I just milked that whole presentation yesterday for the golden messages kind of moment it was…self care practices not being luxuries, the shadow of a leader, healthy caring…I could go on and on!
Well you did an absolutely brilliant job. We were delighted with how it went and feedback so far has been very, very positive. Thank you for truly listening and considering our requirements and getting it right for our audience. We loved working with you.
