Breeding Leadership

Applications for Breeding Leadership 2018 are now closed. The week-long program will be held 18 – 23 February 2018 in Clare, South Australia.

Established in 2002 by the South Australian Stud Merino Breeders Association, Breeding Leadership became a national program through the Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders in 2004. Since 2012, AWI has funded the course.

Since its inception, more than 130 people have completed the course.

Sam Neumann from SA participated in Breeding Leadership in 2016 and said "the course allowed us to look at topics vital to business but outside of usual operating scope. The group benefited from having these topics 'translated' into a language and practical application that we understand and use."

Dayne West, a shearing contractor from Dubbo, NSW said, "I would recommend to anyone in the wool industry". He found "all areas were beneficial to better understand myself and will assist me to develop my business".

The five day program covers a range of topics including strategy (understanding your business and industry), understanding yourself (personality typing), working in teams (accountability, communicating expectations, decision making) and the future (entrepreneurship, innovation and managing change). There is a full day bus tour to allow participants the opportunity to visit local leaders in a range of industries.

Applications closed 16 October 2017.
Breeding Leadership 2018 will be delivered Sunday, 18 February through Friday, 23 February 2018.
