Fifteen nursery industry participants have successfully completed the 2019 Growing Green Leaders program, a professional development course that equips young people with the skills and knowledge to accelerate their careers and businesses.
Run by management consultancy firm, The Right Mind, the 2019 program concluded on 1-2 August in Brisbane. Together with their turf colleagues, the nursery cohort conducted a four-month study program to boost their management and communication skills, while undertaking a chosen workplace project.
There were some common themes in this year’s workplace projects, with many participants focusing their goals on the adoption of more productive behaviours in the workplace, in order to reflect their business’s values or the development of a new initiative or activity to boost overall performance.
At the concluding Leadership Forum in August, each participant presented their projects to the group; discussing their progress, key learnings, and future areas for development. Annette Thompson, Production Manager at Cameron’s Nursery, shared her experiences and key insights from the 2019 program. More
