LEAD – Leadership Exploration and Development for 18 – 35 year olds
LEAD – Leadership Exploration and Development – encompasses learning from the life experiences of Midwest business and community leaders, and the development of their unique leadership styles and qualities.
Based in Geraldton, for emerging and existing leaders from within the Midwest, there are no pre-requisites required to undertake LEAD. Simply the desire to commit to monthly sessions over eight months and further leadership experiences and learnings.
Participants can be self-employed, unemployed, on a board or committee, or employed. They need to be open to learning and sharing, committed and available. Employers or supporters are encouraged to send participants with potential and empower them to attend the entirety of the program and empower them to complete the external aspects.
Employers find that LEAD not only enhances skills but enables these young people to contribute more confidently within the organisation and to take on leadership roles at work and in the community. It provides their potential young leaders with valuable learnings and experience, which can be applied within their workplace immediately following each session.
Participants develop connections with a close group of peers plus local business and community leaders; lead their own community impact activities; and discover and enhance their leadership skills and knowledge through a variety of formats.
The community retains its young leaders, who are encouraged to remain in the region; benefits from the increased involvement, input and impact from these leaders; and becomes known for its powerful leadership program – encouraging school leavers and young adults to remain or relocate here, as they feel supported and provided with opportunity.
LEAD is open to new participants, presenters and sponsors any time. Please contact the Coordinator on email@example.com or 0473 333 803 if you’d like to get involved.
