Applications are now open for the 2020 Growing Leaders Program.
Ten places are available for participants from the nursery industry who want to take the next step in their careers. This cross-industry program will challenge participants to reflect on what is expected of them as future leaders, as well as provide a set of tools and skills that will help them lead teams, and ensure their businesses are prepared to meet the challenges of the future.
This program is an evolution of the previous Growing Green Industry Leaders Program, a four-month professional development course which equipped future nursery industry leaders with career-focused skills and knowledge. However, this new program also includes participants from other sectors including the vegetable, raspberry and blackberry, sweet potato as well as and fresh and processing potato industries. This program also includes two extra days: one of training and a dedicated field day. Combined, these two days enable more time for deeper reflection and real-world application.
By taking a more holistic approach, the Growing Leaders Program provides an opportunity for different industries to learn from each other and their leadership practices.
