Welcome to DDI Australia
We invite you to spend a few minutes getting to know us, and our approach to leadership.
Australian organisations are faced by a constant state of complexity. Disruption is in full force – and the management skills of the past will no longer cut it. It’s clear that a new kind of leadership is needed to propel organisations forward. Whether your charter is driving transformation and innovation, building an inspiring culture and purpose, boosting employee engagement and retention, or driving D&I initiatives (plus much more), we are here to help you make a difference and achieve outstanding results through your biggest asset – your people.

Global Leadership Forecast 2021
DDI’s Global Leadership Forecast (GLF) is now open! This is our largest research survey ever, and we are particularly excited about our partnership with leading global industry analyst Josh Bersin.
By participating in the survey, you can get a free benchmarking report valued over $50,000 for your organisation, comparing your leaders’ data to others in your region, industry, and top performers.
Participating is simple. The GLF is comprised of 2 surveys. You’ll take the 10-15 minute HR Survey, then you’ll automatically receive a unique link to the Leader Survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete. Just send that link on to your leaders.
The program has given assistant nurse unit managers more confidence, more opportunities, much more support, and more in-role development. We’ve built confidence. We’ve built capability at that level
