This paper will describe an organizational change program being envisaged to be carried out in two non-profit organizations in Australia that are providing health and community care. A pilot project was carried out to secure a research grant from the Australian Federal Government to carry out a three-year research project to strengthen leadership in non-profit organizations providing aged care. The paper will summarize the findings from the pilot project which used systems thinking approaches such as scenario planning. It will also explain an action research approach being adopted to test the leadership framework (developed through the pilot project and confirmed through the main project) in real environments. The research is expected to contribute to theory and practice of leadership in the not-for-profit organizations serving the aged care sector in Australia which is a national priority to be addressed.
