AUSTRALIA - The Sheepmeat Council of Australia has launched a new professional development opportunity for sheepmeat producers and others in the industry to build leadership skills and develop networks.
The inaugural Sheepmeat Industry Leadership Programme is part of the SCA and Meat & Livestock Australia joint initiative, ‘Building Leadership Capability for the Sheep Industry’.
The initiative’s objective is to ensure that the Australian sheep industry attracts, develops and retains people with leadership skills to contribute to the long-term viability of the industry.
Sheepmeat Council of Australia President Jeff Murray said: “Through involvement with the SCA, participants will develop a greater understanding of leadership roles and responsibilities in the industry and the value of collaborations, advocacy and effective negotiation.
“Participants will build relationships and networks through communication, influence and new technology application and be connected to the existing industry leaders and experiences of ‘stepping up’ for the industry.
“The sessions will be designed to challenge participants, both personally and professionally, in a safe learning environment, and to improve their leadership practice and understanding of governance.”
Applications close at 5pm on Monday 31 October 2016. An application form and information sheet with entry requirements are available on the SCA website.
