The leadership workshop focuses on personal leadership development in the context of conservation.
Pulling from a variety of innovative leadership training methods, this four-day workshop is tailored to the specific needs of the participants. The workshop is interactive and experiential, allowing participants to “learn as they do.” Participants will leave the training having:
- Taken part in discussions and practical exercises that equip them to address the real leadership challenges they are facing
- Gained insight into their personal leadership style
- Learned and practised new leadership theory and skills that they can use in their work
- Activated peer support pods of their colleagues who will continue to collaborate post course
These leadership skills will serve participants across contexts ranging from individual decision-making to daily teamwork to leading significant conservation campaigns. In particular, the workshop is designed to build skills in leading and co-leading teams, stakeholder and community engagement, collaborating with a broad range of partners, navigating and negotiating conflict, professional mentorship and peer support, and lifelong individual leadership development.
