Programme Objectives:

  • Develop people who will lead local government in Queensland in the future
  • Provide an opportunity for participants to build valuable and relevant networks, providing stronger links and understanding between professions and councils
  • Develop people who will lead at all levels and across professions in their councils
  • Build appreciation and understanding of the wider issues in local government in Queensland
  • Utilise practical experiences and learnings from the local government sector to enable further professional leadership capacity
  • Provide training for emerging leaders that is not solely ‘management’ focused and exposes them to a wide variety of council situations

Key elements of the programme include:

  • Exposing participants to a broad range of local government experiences and insights at a shire, city, regional and aboriginal council perspective
  • In small teams, participants self-manage 1-2 workshops, necessitating the use of good communication skills, a high level of negotiation and influencing skills, project management and interpersonal skills
  • Exploring and evaluating local government case studies and other learning materials that can be readily applied to daily leadership and management practices in a work environment
  • Participation in the group project and combined team memoir
