Southland Leadership Academy
Developing future Southland leaders
The Southland Leadership Academy has been developing Southland leaders since 2019.
We host three intakes of 12 participants each year in Invercargill. In addition to delivering the Leadership Academy on Stewart Island Rakiura, during 2021 – 2022 we will offer Intakes across Southland including Te Anau, Edendale, Lumsden, Gore and Otautau.
The purpose of this programme, which is completed over multi-days, is to provide leaders with the opportunity to build leadership capabilities through their own personal development and by learning from the experience of others.
The Leadership Academy is for people who are passionate about developing their existing leadership experience and who have the potential for holding senior positions and governance roles.
The participant, at the completion of the experiential and reflective learning sessions, will be better equipped and have a good understanding of what is required to be a leader in their own organisation and in the wider business community.
Each session is led by a senior executive from significant Southland – Otago based businesses or other organisations. The participant will benefit from the opportunity to interact with the presenter and build an ongoing connection with them, and other participants.
At the end of the programme, participants will graduate and be invited to become a member of the Southland Leadership Academy Alumni.
