Sustainable Leadership Skills

When: April 28, 2018

Leadership training over five Saturday afternoons, starting 28 April 2018

Leading a community or other organisation calls for skills in negotiating and advocacy as well as an understanding of how people respond differently to different leadership styles. This is a course for those who would like to work with others to run more effective sustainability groups and actions.

Leadership calls for a set of skills that can turn ideas into action and then into outcomes. Understanding the different styles of leadership, reflecting on how you already lead, and gaining insight into how to improve your leadership qualities it what you get by enrolling in this innovative course led by Grahame Collier, one of Australia’s most experienced sustainability educators.

We will study leaders and how they operate, set goals for our own leadership development, gain insight into lobbying and negotiation and emerge from the course with knowledge of the type of leadership skills we would like to develop.

In this course we learn from each other as well as from Grahame, and by the end of the course we emerge ready to take a leading role in our organisations to take them into an inclusive and effective future.

This innovative FREE and participatory course covers:

  • What is effective leadership?
  • Learning from our leader icons
  • Leadership for sustainability – turning passions into outcomes
  • What sort of leader am I/can I become?
  • Personal goals for leader development

  • Effective lobbying and negotiation skills
  • Reflecting on my leadership in the community and elsewhere.
