Women's Leadership

Using your power and influence to make progress on what matters most

Cement Mills Hall, Cement Mills Road, Cement Mills 12:00 pm - 16:00 pm

Pilot workshop. We will pull apart a traditional leadership style: Coercive Leadership (as per Daniel Goleman’s work). Consider the how and why, the benefits and limitations of this style of leadership. This will be an opportunity to consider real life scenarios, to workshop how you might respond to coercive tactics and how and when you might use them to make progress on what matter’s most.




This event is supported and enabled by the National Rural Women’s Coalition who provide a collaborative voice for women living in rural, remote and regional Australia. Their training and support has enabled me to create this opportunity for women in my community. Their leadership courses are deeply inspiring and have been life changing for me. Learn more about them here.

The Goondiwindi Regional Council is partnering with me to deliver this workshop in my community, using our local community hall. This enables me to bring you this opportunity at no cost to you. Don’t miss it!
