Applications for Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast’s (RDALC) place-based Emerging Leaders Program opened on Monday 16 January 2023 for new and aspiring leaders across the Limestone Coast.
The Emerging Leaders Program, which is part of the Government of South Australia funded Limestone Coast Leaders program, will be delivered over 8 months in 2023. The program is open to people from across the Limestone Coast who are ready to broaden their leadership skills through personal growth, self-empowerment, and relationship development. Starting with a 2-day retreat in late March, the program will predominantly be delivered face-to-face and will consist of monthly workshop sessions in locations around the region.
“Funded by the Government of South Australia, the Emerging Leaders Program is a fantastic opportunity for the region and its people by developing future leaders,” said Evan Flint, Chair RDALC. “This program will build the leadership skills of a diverse range of community members and foster a culture of active citizenship, shared purpose, and community action,” Mr Flint said.
Building upon the success of the Limestone Coast Leadership Program, the Emerging Leaders Program is designed around the principle that leaders must understand themselves before trying to influence and inspire others.
“We are excited to have Leaders HP and Aurora Meliora onboard to deliver this new program. The values of these organisations align with what we are striving to achieve—the development of capable leaders in regional South Australia,” said David Wheaton, CEO RDALC. “Places are limited, so I encourage anyone interested in developing their leadership skills and becoming more involved in their community to apply for this exciting opportunity” Mr Wheaton said.
