CBH Grass Roots Leadership Short Course

A group of seven people hold certificates
The CBH Grass Roots Leadership Short Course is part of the co-operative's commitment to supporting leadership capacity within our regional communities. 

Delivered by the Australian Institute of Management WA and University of WA Business School’s Executive Education, the highly regarded course is designed for people living and working in regional WA who want to develop their leadership skills and become more effective, influential, and engaging leaders. 

Taking place over four days, the short course is split into two, 2-day sessions with the course alternating Port Zones each year to support as many growers as possible to attend. This year the course will take place as scheduled below: 


Venue: Retravision Centennial Stadium
2 - 3 June 2022 & 21 - 22 July 2022


Venue: Esperance Bay Yacht Club
2 - 3 June 2022 & 21 - 22 July 2022 

Who is the short course for?

The short course is designed for those who are interested in developing leadership skills that will help them become a more effective leader or for those who have ambitions to transition to higher leadership positions within their community and industry. 

Places are limited to 20 people per location with preference given to growers and those working or studying within the grain industry. 

What will I learn?

The two-module course supports participants to analyse their leadership capabilities and develop a deeper understanding of what makes an effective and engaging leader.

Facilitated by AIM/UWA, participants will have the opportunity to explore authentic and resilient leadership, build the confidence and tools needed to communicate with influence, and explore strategies to engage others in change. 

As part of the course, a dinner is held on the first night of each of the two-day sessions to provide participants an opportunity to network with other growers and also representatives from the CBH Grower's Advisory Council and the CBH Board

How much is the program?

An initiative of the CBH Growers Advisory Council, the short course is part of the co-operative's Regional Capacity Building Program which aims to further strengthen regional leadership capacity and encourage Western Australian growers to nominate for leadership positions within the industry and community.

As such, the Grass Roots Leadership Program is heavily subsidised by CBH with participants required to contribute a $400 fee and cover their own travel costs. All other costs including course materials, meals, accommodation and course facilitation by an AIM/UWA facilitator are included. 

How can I apply?

Applications for the 2022 intake of the Grass Roots Leadership Short Course will open 21 March 2022 and close 24 April 2022.

Successful participants will be notified of course confirmation in May 2022.
