About Us

Our Purpose

The Leaders Institute of South Australia is driving the future of leadership excellence across the State. Established in July 2004, the Leaders Institute provides unique leadership development opportunities that deliver beneficial change for individuals, organisations and society as a whole. The exceptional suite of programs we offer supports our mission to develop wiser leaders for South Australia.

The Leaders Institute’s flagship program, the Governor’s Leadership Foundation (GLF) Program, offers truly life changing and accelerated learning opportunities intended to expand the self-awareness, wisdom and impact of its participants. Participants experience not only individual leadership growth but also the chance to contribute meaningfully to community change and prosperity.

The Leaders Institute and our program graduates are continually proving influential in building a greater community for a better State. Our graduates know that the Leaders Institute’s programs are effective in bringing about personal and professional growth that extends well beyond involvement alone and includes connection to a broader leadership community.

Get involved today. You can register for a program, attend an event, bring us a wicked problem or provide sponsorship. However you get involved, you will inevitably become a wiser leader for South Australia. 


Our mission is to develop wiser leadership for the benefit of the South Australian community.  We do this by being a key catalyst for positive change and prosperity in our State, providing unconventional, unmatched and unforgettable opportunities for personal and professional growth for our State's established and emerging leaders and a powerful community of practice to support them in their professional and community leadership work.
