Empowering First Peoples With Leadership Confidence and Capability

First Peoples Leading

Developing the confidence, capabilities and connections to successfully transition and  thrive in leadership roles is critical to achieving tangible, long-term improvements in the social and economic outcomes experienced by First Peoples, their families and communities.

Often motivated more by aspiration than ambition, many First People possess the hallmarks of good leadership – purpose, resilience and humility. Yet First People are likely to face a number of unique challenges that must be anticipated, managed and ultimately leveraged in order to realise the purpose that drives their leadership aspiration.

The program is delivered online via live video stream and is a uniquely engaging experience. Delivered over 4 months, the program is centred around 7 x 2.5-hour workshops, an individual needs analysis, provision of extensive self-directed learning resources and 1:1 coaching.

 This is an interactive and participatory program and an opportunity to develop lasting relationships and a powerful professional network. It is guaranteed to have a positive impact on everyone.

The program provides opportunities to take a critical look at each participants’ career, leadership and personal strengths.

For Aboriginal leaders, the social and moral obligation that comes with community leadership is life-long. Those who lead, who have authority, must care for and look after those who come behind.

- Senator Patrick Dodson
