Fu­ture lead­ers gather

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE - ❏ Sue Har­ris

A SUC­CESS­FUL lead­er­ship work­shop was held at the RM Wil­liams Aus­tralian Bush Learn­ing Cen­tre last week thanks to spon­sor­ship by Growcom and the Queens­land government and de­liv­ery by Jac­qui Rochester, from the Univer­sity of Queens­land Gat­ton Vocational Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre.

The two-day pro­gram gave prac­ti­cal train­ing and in­for­ma­tion to man­agers, su­per­vi­sors and team lead­ers and those as­pir­ing to take on those roles.

The work­shop cov­ered topics such as ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion that will de­velop trust, re­spect and con­fi­dence; iden­ti­fy­ing and analysing dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions and tak­ing suit­able ac­tions; man­ag­ing con­flict con­struc­tively and ef­fec­tively op­er­at­ing as a team.

Once par­tic­i­pants’ work has been checked to ver­ify they met course re­quire­ments, they will be is­sued with an ac­cred­ited unit of com­pe­tency.

Par­tic­i­pants found the course both prac­ti­cal and in­ter­est­ing and taught strate­gies which they could be­gin ap­ply­ing im­me­di­ately in their work­places.

An­other work­shop is be­ing held in Gayn­dah shortly.
