TFGA Future Leaders program

The Tasmanian Farmers and Grazier’s Association (TFGA) has launched an exciting new training initiative for Tasmania’s primary industries; Future Industry Leaders – growing people.

The Future Industry Leaders Program has been developed to build the people management and communication capability within Tasmania’s agricultural, forestry and seafood sectors.

This is a personal development program.  It’s about increasing the capability of participants to work more effectively with other people, to improve workplace satisfaction, productivity and happiness. It will:

  • improve your self-awareness;
  • develop your understanding of the motivations and behaviours of others;
  • build your ability to communicate and network effectively; and
  • show you how to work in ways that will inspire and engage the people around you.

The program will run over seven days, between May and August 2017, and will be centrally located in the Launceston region to enable people from across the State to participate.  The cost of the program is $400 per person (excl GST), which includes all training course materials and catering but not travel, accommodation or breakfast.  This has been subsidised considerably with support from the state Government through its Cultivating Prosperity in Agriculture initiatives.

If you’re not already in a position of influence, that doesn’t exclude you – this program is equally relevant for aspiring leaders of the future.  A group of participants with a broad range of training, experience, abilities, genders, locations and industries will be selected.

Applications are now open and will close on Tuesday 14th of March 2017.
