Red Earth Community Leadership Program
I wasn't sure what I was looking for when I decided to participate in the SBCLP. I now know I was missing a feeling of real connection with my community. The program brought me that connection and as I watch it continue each year I see that feeling rippling through the community connecting more and more people. Inspiring us to all work together and pull together as a community in the good times and also in times of trouble. As I watch events and issues unfold in our area I feel the community as a whole is continuing to grow stronger and more resilient. Having such a solid leadership program continues to be of great benefit to us all.
I spent four years doing a Masters degree in Leadership, in which I learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed. I enjoyed and learnt as much participating in the SBCLP as I did in my Masters course (if not more) - with the added benefit of making great new friends from the Burnett region, recognising my own value as a leader and team member, and joining a larger alumni who are passionate about their communities and about leadership. I can't speak highly enough of Red Earth's program and look forward to supporting it for many years to come.
Red Earth's community leadership program has given me both the skills and the confidence to put myself "out there" and to take hold of opportunities I would previously thought "good idea" but not thought I was "enough" to try for it. I have developed an extensive group of mentors, peers and friends that I can turn to for both community and personal growth. I feel the program has shown me how to access the keys to the door, a map for the journey and the resources to venture on. Thank you!
What an eye opening and crucial program.
I have learned to listen to other people and, on a personal note, listen to my family. Content which I found very informative included how to find strengths in others; hearing about other people’s ideas and points of view. I learned how to bring groups of people together for the same goal and also the importance of looking at your employees in a different light. As a result, my work and home life has improved.
The South Burnett Community Leadership Program has made me able to understand and believe in myself and my capabilities. In turn this has helped me to help my community in a positive way.
The Red Earth Program not only supports its participants but it supports our entire community. There have been many positive outcomes achieved within our community as a result of our alumni network working together in a stronger, more cohesive way. Our alumni has become a strength of our community.
