Empowering Aboriginal Community Leaders to improve the welfare of their people

Client - The NSW Aboriginal Land Council

Organisational Need

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council is the state’s peak body in Aboriginal Affairs. The CEOs and Councillors of Local Aboriginal Land Councils along with Senior Managers from LG, ASICS, Hilti and the Australian Rugby Union required enhancing their leadership skills. The real success was reliant upon culturally appropriate and organisationally relevant content and delivery, from both the participants’ perspective as well as the community members they serve.

Solution

The six-day BSB51107 Diploma of Management: Leadership Managing People was delivered over eight months and tailored to achieve two objectives. The first was to ensure the very senior yet diverse group of experienced leaders were inspired and engaged with innovative, practical and thought provoking concepts and thinking. The second was to demonstrate cultural understanding and respect for diversity. Both these objectives would ensure the participants would readily engage with and embrace the content and the learning experience.

Desired Outcomes

High engagement levels and participation resulting in renewed vigour and motivation to approach community and business problems from new perspectives.

Results

Personal attention to each and every participant created a sense of comfort and confidence for active participation during the course. The program created a process for community leaders to starburst ideas and resolve business issues. The participants thoroughly enjoyed and embraced the learning, providing the following feedback:

“An awakening! Opened my mind to new ideas and concepts in managing people & life.”

 “We are very pleased to provide this testimonial for BSI Learning. We have found BSI Learning to be very professional.

Testimonial

  •  

    “This program takes leadership theory to a new level by creating a reflective, self-realising, insightful and inspiring journey. It is a wonderful balance between theory and practical application, enabling both professional and personal development. Our facilitator was truly inspiring! The way he engages the room and delivers the program with such enthusiasm, passion, insight and personal flare adds a real value to the course. I believe that it was through this that I was best able to understand the content and apply my new skills and knowledge both personally and professionally. He has helped me realise it is up to ME to be a better version of myself all the time. Thank you :) ”

    From the evaluations we have received from the participants and from my own observation, we would like to provide our views.

    BSI Learning Trainers are very talented presenters who were able to guide a diverse group of participants with ease. They also provided personal attention to each and every participant that boosted their confidence and increased their comfort to actively participate in the training session.”
