Tasmanian Leaders is a respected not-for-profit organisation that identifies and develops leaders who are committed to influencing a successful future for Tasmania.

Their core product, the Tasmanian Leaders Program, offers participants a unique life-changing professional development experience that achieves positive outcomes for themselves and their employers.

The program, now in its eleventh year, brings participants together at regular intervals to explore Tasmania’s future and undertake professional development with some of the country’s best leadership practitioners. This formula is proven to increase leadership capacity, general business acumen and community awareness of all participants.

Kirby Dillon applied for the 2017 Tasmanian Leaders Program wanting to develop her leadership skills and identify ways that that these skills could be used both within her workplace and in the wider community and with organisations that she works with.

“I was drawn to the program as it is Tasmanian based and also provides the opportunity to work with other emerging leaders within the state,” she said.

“The program has exceeded my expectations in many ways. I am half way through the program and already have a much greater understanding of both the unique challenges and opportunities our state faces. The calibre of speakers that we have had the opportunity to meet and work with has been inspirational. I am continuing to learn more about my strengths and weaknesses and how to challenge myself and develop these areas. Also having the opportunity to get to know and work with the 23 other participants is fantastic.”

Kirby recommends the program, “to anyone wanting to be inspired, challenged, gain greater self-awareness and for those wanting to better our state and community.”

High potential leaders from across all sectors wanting to accelerate their leadership capacity by being challenged and inspired in an immersive learning environment are invited to apply for the 2018 Program.
