Leading Australian Resilient Communities (LARC)

This brand-new leadership program is currently underway, designed to amplify the already resilient leadership on the North West Coast of Tasmania.

Delivered by Tasmanian Leaders, in partnership with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation, this dynamic program responds to the region’s unique opportunities and is guided by best practice learning techniques.

About the LARC program

The LARC program develops skills, knowledge and provides space for up to 26 participants to consider possible futures for their communities and the leadership required of them. Over eight-months, participants gather regularly to expand their understanding of regional development, the role of place-based leadership, and develop skills in strategic foresight, adaptive leadership and resilience.

Content is delivered by Tasmanian Leaders professional facilitators with plenty of opportunity to engage with local and national experts giving participants access to:

  • A series of relevant and engaging webinars
  • Ongoing mentoring and executive coaching
  • Support to design and deliver a community project, and
  • Three in-person workshops delivered along the Tasmanian North West Coast

Who is participating?

The LARC program has been developed to build capacity for resilient adaptive leadership tailored to the unique and localised challenges faced by businesses and communities on Tasmania’s North West Coast. We are excited to announce that we have 26 community leaders currently undertaking the program and we look forward to sharing their program experience with you as the journey unfolds.
