The Dairy Leadup course has been designed to provide an opportunity for our young people to develop their skills, knowledge and tools to build capacity for themselves, their family, their team and their business.
While most of us wouldn’t consider ourselves natural born leaders and would probably shy away from this sort of course, what most of us don’t realise is that we use leadership skills in our everyday life all the time. This program is all about developing practical, real-life skills and will help participants develop the ability to be able to cope with those un-expected or challenging situations that crop up all the time.
The course is a series of 3 two-day workshops which will include both theory and practical work. Participants will also have the opportunity to complete 3 units of competency by undertaking assessment projects.
The workshop series will include;
Workshop 1: The Leader Within (Woodlands, Marburg 1 & 2nd August 2012)
- What do leaders do?
- Leadership skills and qualities
- Understanding self and others (MBTI)
- Effective communication (links to conflict management)
- Organising myself to lead
Workshop 2 Team Leadership (Woodlands, Marburg 12 & 13th Sept, 2012)
- Understanding tem leadership
- Capacity to Influence Influence through leadership
- Understanding my Leadership style
- Problem solving and decision making (including conflict management)
- Performance management
- Coaching for improvement and development
Workshop 3 From the Front (Woodlands, Marburg 24 & 25th Oct 2012)
- Facilitating groups
- Making presentations
- Implementing change
- Dairy Leadup in Action
We are pleased to have Barb Bishop as our trainer and facilitator for these workshops again.

What one of our previous participants had to say about their Leadin’ experience..
How would you describe Leadin’ to a potential newcomer?
“An opportunity to reflect on your personal knowledge and skills and your own strengths and weaknesses and take that one step further and be challenged to grow or improve these attributes to be a successful leader in your own home, business, and wider community.”
Best thing you took away from Leadin’
“The interaction with others in the group their insight into similar situations that we are going through on our own farm and positive action based activities to implement at home or in the business.”
Worst thing about Leadin’
“Sometimes very confronting hard to sometimes change the way we see and do things.”
The biggest challenge with Leadin’
“The time that farmers can get away from their businesses the negativity in the industry at present and how that can be made positive change not just for change sake but for better business."
