Take the lead role in your future with the South East Local Leaders Program

Do you live in south east New South Wales? Are you interested in accessing some of the best leadership thinking and practice available, acquiring practical leadership tools and skills, a deep understanding and knowledge about leading change? Are you looking for strong networks with like-minded people and an opportunity to work on a project that you are passionate about? Would you like to link your ideas with support and inspiration from others?

The South East Local Leaders program and alumni network offers all this with an added guarantee of a seriously fun journey - dealing with the tough stuff is not always about hard work!

Today, our landscapes and communities are impacted by social, economic and environmental changes. Join others in taking a lead role in your future, and the future of your communities and landscapes. Make the most of this opportunity to apply for this heavily subsidised 8-day leadership learning program running between August and October 2016.

Local Land Services and South East Landcare have partnered with Global Learning to deliver a program to develop the leadership skills of people involved in natural resource management, Landcare, community, biosecurity and agricultural sectors in the South East.

Building on a successful pilot program in 2015, this Local Leaders program will provide opportunities to collaborate, deepen and expand your skills to lead, build long-term networks, develop problem solving and systems thinking skills, and undertake a wide range of practical ‘hands-on’ learning experiences.

2015 participant, Community Food Coop coordinator Cath found the program valuable:

“Structured reflection, an assessment of my own personal traits and ways of operating, tools for collaboration, systems mapping of the local food sector, are just some of the aspects of this leadership course that made it relevant and enlightening to me personally, as well as to my role at a local food cooperative. This course built business relationships and friendships between producers, retailers, distributors, educators and caterers, fostering confidence and a collaboration amongst participants for a diverse, vibrant and thriving local food sector.”

Don’t miss out on this unique and transformative opportunity. Only one program is being offered in 2016.
