Applications for the 2021 Leaders for Geelong Program are now open
The Leaders for Geelong program is providing our city-region with inspired and well connected visionaries, who are better prepared to lead their own organisations and the wider community.
Leaders for Geelong (LfG) is a 15-month program that develops personal leadership capacity through a unique learning experience, designed to address the current social, economic, and environmental issues of importance to the Geelong city-region. Now in its 16th year, is designed to build regional leadership capacity to shape a better future for our region. This is a community leadership program and is different from mainstream leadership programs.
Participants are challenged and inspired by renowned leaders and subject matter experts, undertake ‘behind the scenes’ tours, discuss case studies and participate in a range of other activities. The program also sees participants working in teams on a community based project of regional significance.
In 2021-22, the Leaders for Geelong program will be offered as a blended learning format. Online and face-to-face learning will occur with elements of assessment, leadership coaching and experiential learning and support.
