The Green Industry Growing Leaders’ program (MT16002) is approaching the end for 2019 participants, wrapping up four-months of new learnings and hard work with a final two-day Leadership Forum in Brisbane on 1-2 August.
This professional development course aims to equip future leaders of our industry with the skills and knowledge to progress their careers and grow their businesses. Participants learn about good management techniques, how to empower a workforce, and the importance of continued professional development to remain at the forefront of growth.
The program kicked off in May with a two-day introductory forum in Sydney, which brought together 15 participants from the Australian nursery industry, as well as five from the turf industry.
At the induction, program conveners, The Right Mind, coordinated a series of lessons, activities and tasks that encouraged participants to reflect on their own management styles. They were also given the opportunity to network with industry leaders; hearing their insights on the importance of good management in order to get the most out of their staff, and to successfully create change and growth within businesses.
