The problem with the current model of leadership development is that it exacerbates working in silos. Across our community, individual organisations are responsible to send their representatives/staff to separate leadership development; each learning different models and approaches from different institutions.

Then they must return as an individual and alone attempt to implement what they have learnt. This is not the ‘network’ model of leadership, identified as vital for the future. The impact of this is that there are many missed opportunities due to duplicated efforts and working in silos. This happens across the community.

One example of silos is celebrating and commemorating important cultural events. When organisations are not able to easily network and dovetail their efforts, not only do we see great expense in replicating, but competition for eyeballs.

Duplication can be reduced by providing a community based approach to leadership development, applying the 10X approach to vital projects. This has already proven effective in Tamworth.

One example is the Rotary Tree Planting project, where in 2021, the clubs joined together to achieve much more together than they could separately. This resulted in an increased collaboration, greater community involvement and the 10 fold result of not 100 trees but 1,000 trees being planted.

Community leadership is the courage, creativity and capacity to inspire participation, development and sustainability for strong communities.
