The issues facing the fishing industry are unique and complex. In order to meet these challenges, good leaders are needed in all areas of influence. It is vital that these leaders use their leadership and build consensus to bring about change. The ARLF develops leaders who can act individually and collectively, in ethical ways for a stronger rural and regional Australia.
The investment to develop leaders at all levels of industry and across al sectors, and improve communication between them is critical for a successful and productive industry into the future.
Developing individual leadership capacity, in turn will lead to communities and the broader industry being able to meet future challenges and opportunities.
Core capabilities required and developed within the ARLP include: governance, influence, critical thinking, leading through complexity and ethical considerations. These are capabilities that underpin industry leadership and it is through these core capabilities that the industry will be able to respond to current and future needs.
Relationships, and the ability of participants to relate to one another and build other relationships, underpin all learning developments.
