About

About

The six day Civic Leadership course is a result of a creative partnership between several social sector organisations concerned with fostering agile and authentic responses to complex change. The experience for participants is challenging, involving pre readings, in-context work between sessions, building relationships with people from diverse backgrounds, traveling to various sites for immersion visits, taking an active role in contributing to the learning of others and being open to reflect on your own leadership practice. The course is highly experiential and gives participants an understanding of the complexities of leadership alongside insights into your own personal practice. In this information age, we don’t need more knowledge but more focused time to build understanding and a safe space in which to risk doing things differently.

The course is held over three 2-day gatherings across the greater Sydney region. It is run by skilled, empathic facilitators with guest speakers sharing their stories, drawing on leadership and change theory, positive psychology, community engagement, coaching and personal development thinking. The course will suit a wide range of practitioners, however we recommend participants have at least three years of leadership experience.

The cost is for the full 6-day course is $2,000pp for partner organisations & $2,400 for other organisations or individuals.
