About the Course

Boards of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-managed organisations operate in two worlds: they have cultural obligations to specific communities as well as legal and financial obligations to the wider community and funding bodies.

  • Understand a range of leadership styles and their application to a range of different situations and contexts to support good governance.
  • Become familiar with personal strengths, capabilities and development.
  • Ability to work effectively in teams, e.g. Board of Management context and other relationships using cross-cultural and professional skills.
  • Understand and develop one’s own role within an organisation or corporation.
  • Build leadership skills and knowledge.
  • Build personal and public confidence in working on Boards of Management and senior management roles.
  • Communication within Communities, Work Teams, Boards of Management, Stakeholders and Funding Bodies
