Experiential Leadership Development

Ridley seeks to cultivate leaders who are servant-hearted, emotionally intelligent and authentic. These leaders will promote the gospel through their organisations as they build engagement, empower others, and promote teamwork. (See www.leadership.ridley.edu.au/leadership-philosophy)

Developing leaders, especially in the important ‘soft skills’ like character, emotions and relationships is almost impossible in the traditional classroom environment. That is why we have introduced this unique approach to leadership training.

Join us in Sydney for five days of intensive leadership development. This program will test and expand your leadership skills as you start as a beginner sailor, work in a team, and participate in increasingly demanding challenges. No prior sailing experience is necessary.

This all takes place in the relatively calm and safe waters around Pittwater in Sydney’s north. Accommodation is on the yacht and in a waterfront cottage.

Individual leadership coaching, team feedback and facilitated debriefing sessions are designed to help you reflect on biblically informed leadership theory, understand your strengths, identify your blind spots and build your confidence as a leader.

12 hours of online leadership content and an initial assignment must be completed prior to the experience, along with a Leader 360 profile.
