As part of the course, a dinner is held on the first night of each two-day session to provide participants an opportunity to network with other growers and also representatives from the Grower’s Advisory Council and the CBH Board.
Who is the short course for?
The course has been specifically designed for those living in grain growing regions of WA. It is targeted at those who are interested in developing their leadership skills that will help them become more effective leaders within their community and industry, or for those who have ambitions to transition to higher leadership positions.
It is best suited for those who may not yet be ready or able to commit to an intensive course that is traditionally offered in metropolitan areas. Places for each course is limited to 20. Preference is 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 learn about authentic and resilient leadership, understand how to influence, develop toolkits to communicate with influence, and examine strategies on how to engage others in change.
How much is the program?
CBH’s commitment to building leadership capacity in regional WA means the CBH Grass Roots Leadership Program is heavily subsidised, with participants required to contribute a $400 fee. All course materials, meals, accommodation and course facilitation by an AIM/UWA facilitator are included. Participants will be required to take care of their own travel costs to and from the venue.
