Breeding Leadership is a national program for young people in all facets of the wool industry and aims to develop the leadership and professional skills of young people involved in the wool industry.
Funded by AWI and delivered by Pinion Advisory, Breeding Leadership forms a key part of AWI’s growing commitment to education in the wool industry.
Since its inception, more than 175 people have completed the Breeding Leadership course.
2022 will be the ninth time the five day program will be delivered. The week 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.
"It gave me a mandate to improve many aspects of my business management. Good communication in day to day running of the farm while also being an owner leader and expanding into industry leadership."
- Ian Cameron from Jerilderie, NSW participated in Breeding Leadership in 2020.
"I will be able to put all of these new skills into practise when I get home. I am very keen to continue on with succession planning and to be able to put in place new visions for our own business, strategic plans, risk management and to put from owner/manager to owner/leader".
- Amie L'Estrange from Condobolin, NSW participated in Breeding Leadership in 2020.
The program develops skills and knowledge in personal leadership as well as strategic planning and team leadership. It also provides an excellent opportunity for participants to network with 25 other like-minded people from across Australia, as well as the skilled program deliverers and others from the wool industry.
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.
The next Breeding Leadership course will be held in 2022 in Clare, SA.
