The Foundation's exclusive program for seasoned leaders is now open for registrations! If you are an experienced leader this program is designed specifically for you.
- You are time-poor, experience-rich, responsibility-heavy;
- You are looking ahead and wondering, 'what's next for me?';
- You want to expand your thinking and perspective to be more influential and dynamic as a leader;
- You're looking for a program that's not just 'chalk-and-talk' - but something edgy, powerful, and transformational;
- You are seeking the company of other peer leaders, on other industries/sectors, to gain new perspectives and connections;
- You want real tools, real resources, that fit with the complex and dynamic world you lead in, and will lead in to the future; then
TRAILblazers 2012 is the program for you.
Here's what's waiting for you:
Outdoor Experiential Education: All in a beautiful remote setting.
Social Media: "Get Off the Back Foot Before You Get Stepped On".
Craig Rispin: "Think Like A Futurist". Renown Technology Futurist Craig Rispin will be delivering an intensive workshop where not only will you learn the latest trends affecting your sector and world as a whole, but how to identify and plan for them yourself.
Joanna Maxwell: "Creative and Juicy Thinking". Facing some long-standing challenges? A fresh and innovative approach using your whole brain may crack the solution you've been longing for.
Maja Stanojevic-Andre: Leadership Maturity Framework. Leadership thinking, attitudes, and strategies evolve with the leader. The complexities of our global communities and industries demand new levels of leadership engagement; what got us here won't get us where we need to go next. In this workshop, Maja will outline the various stages of leadership maturity, the pitfalls and attributes, where you are on the scale, and how to evolve so you can be more responsive, flexible, influential, and strategic.
Masterminding: On the last day of the program, you will have an opportunity to seek solutions to one of your own challenges. Consistently a highlight in previous programs, Masterminding allows you access to some of the brightest, most experienced leaders, and exploit their experience and opinions to help shape your own solutions to complex issues. Your peers become your ongoing, private network of support.
Overall, TRAILblazers aims to
Expand leadership frameworks, concepts and strategies for a more resilient and robust approach to handling complex issues;
Establish new relationships and networks with other leaders across sectors and regions; and
Develop a fresh perspective and focus for their ongoing professional development and contribution to rural Australia.
The program will begin with a challenge-based educational component, followed by more formal presentations, workshops, and discussions with key speakers.
TRAILblazers only happens once per year, and there are only twelve spots available, so now is the time to reserve a spot for the 2012 program.
23-31 March 2012, 8 day residential in Canberra
