Leadership Lift Off

We are so excited here at RuralScope.  We turn 20 years old in 2020.  We are celebrating by sharing 20 stories across 20 months.  These will include highlights, lowlights and learnings.  A unique insight into our development - personal and business for you.  Our aim is to share learnings to support others who live and work across rural Australia.   

This is our third story in the series and it’s all about how we got into the leadership in agriculture space.  And the people who helped us do it.   

Our first large scale project in agriculture, Dairying Beyond 2000 was coming to an end.  Feedback highlighted our team had led and implemented a bit of a game changer.  I remember being told that the dairy industry had not seen the level of engagement with growers and all across the supply chain as they had seen in Dairying Beyond 2000.  A big tick and confidence boost for us.  I was relieved that the industry’s chance on us had paid off and pleased that I had coordinated a project that delivered direct benefit to farmers, many facing their biggest challenge in generations.  We had tapped into the 3F’s – Farm, Family and Finance and it was the “people stuff” (as many called it) that had left a mark.

This is our second story in the series and its all about the very first project in dairy industry and we have never looked back.

 

Two months after starting out in business, I saw an advertisement in the Brisbane newspaper, The Courier Mail.  It was for a Project Coordinator for a dairy industry project.  It was a large feature ad for someone qualified and experienced in project management with experience in the agricultural sector.  Self doubt crept in.  I didn't think I'd get a look in as my experience was in large scale education not agricultural projects. I gave myself a talking to and decided to give it a go!  I hoped being raised on a dairy farm and being involved in a family farming business might count for something.

We are pleased to be facilitating the Australian Grain Leaders Program in 2018.  10th Anniversary.  This year will mark over 100 graduates.  These amazing leaders are creating positive change in the grains industry.  Eleven participants are joining the program in 2018 with a soft launch in January and a formal launch in Canberra in February.   The program is hosted by Grain Growers Limited.

1. Themselves, 2. Their Enterprise and 3. The Australian grains industry.

7 Habits to Guide you to Success
One of my favourite books and programs of all time is The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  This amazing work of Dr Stephen R Covey has contributed to my own development as well as provided a great platform for some of the leadership programs we facilitate.  A key activity is to look at the 7 habits of effective people and then their opposites. I find this is one of the best ways to understand the 7 habits of highly effective people. Here's an overview for you...
