Future Leaders Of the West | Leadership Program 2021
17 February @ 9:00 am - 17 June @ 4:00 pm AEDT$3950
The Future Leaders of the West (FLOW) is a unique leadership program in Melbourne’s west to develop business leadership skills and prepare participants for community leadership roles. The program has been designed to provide extensive networking opportunities both within Wyndham and beyond, and to gain a depth of knowledge on this growing region not provided elsewhere. This means that participants will have an insight into Wyndham and the West that others will not.
During the FLOW program, participants will meet with leaders from business, government and the community and will work in teams to develop and implement a community project.
Working on real community-enriching projects, FLOW participants will grow their local network and learn to manage work priorities, communicate with impact, build effective relationships, manage team effectiveness and performance, step up, make decisions and be accountable for their actions, success and contribution.
Success in this program is measured by participants’ ability to:
- Develop, both personally and professionally
- Become well-rounded thinkers and leaders
- Perform tasks within a diverse team outside of class time
- Deliver targeted project outcomes of enduring personal & professional development
- Leverage from new connections to improve Wyndham
- Achieve tangible contributions by implementing new leadership strategies in the workplace and community
- …and more
- 9 month program - one day per month (9am - 4pm)
- Expressions of interest for the 2021 program are now being accepted. The course will commence when there are sufficient numbers.
