Leadership capability and mentoring

Sharing our knowledge and skills with the next generation

With three decades of experience in this sector

Green Skills is passionate about leadership capability and mentoring. We are committed to sharing our skills with current and emerging leaders in the environmental, Landcare, NRM and Sustainability and Community Development sectors.

Our dedicated staff and project contractors, in partnership with external consultants, develop and deliver successful leadership programs for regional community leaders both within Western Australia and interstate.

We have a special interest in leadership development for women in regional and rural Australia.

We continue to be leaders in our own projects

We appreciate the ongoing development of leadership skills as necessary to our own constant growth and improvement.

Our experienced facilitators offer a range of specific skills and leadership development workshops. These can be developed to suit organisational and/or individual needs and delivered in the work place or for self-organised groups at independent locations.

Leadership Skills Development

Our Supporting Women in Leadership – One Day workshops have been attended by women across the Great Southern and South West of Western Australia.  These workshops have been tailored to suit people living in regional and rural Australia. Participants learn about their unique style of leadership, communication styles and strategies for affirmative engagement, and increase their confidence and capability to lead in their own communities.  For an indicative example of a one-day agenda READ HERE

Our Take the Next Step – ongoing mentoring service provides individual mentoring for current and emerging leaders, developed to suit their individual needs in their leadership journey or project or campaign development.

We also provide a range of standalone development workshops that can be arranged and delivered in blocks according to your organisation or community needs.  For a list of some of the possibilities READ HERE.

Combatting dune erosion at Coogee Beach

Visitors to Coogee Beach will notice Ecojobs staff working in the dunes – not trampling, but using a technique called “brushing”.

This rehabilitation method involves using tree and shrub branches to stabilise dunes. Native branches create a microclimate that protects and shades sand, increases water infiltration, reduces erosion and wind speed, deters traffic, and traps sand. The essential conditions for revegetation.

Ecojobs team members Perry, Mitch and Ben have been working with the City of Cockburn on this coastline protection initiative.

Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,

Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops.
