We were very fortunate to have Kim Scanlon from Alpine Valleys Community Leadership present for our Learn Support Lead workshop on Leadership Styles and Types of Leaders at the Wodonga Bowling Club.
The evening involved plenty of discussion around the various leadership styles we all face within our workplaces, community and sporting clubs. The key message being no one style is better or worse than another as long as the approach is applied in an effective manner to achieve the required outcome or result. The group learned the qualities that identify leadership versus management, and the importance of emotional intelligence in effective leadership.
Perhaps the most discussion occurred around our ideal holiday. The group was split into personality/styles based on the Myers-Briggs Interactive Tool. Despite a few common features the motivations and desired outcomes were vastly different. It was a great example for the group to see how activities that get one person enthusiastic could be someone else’s nightmare!
Many thanks to Kim for her time, and Kate from Wodonga Bowling Club for hosting.
The next Learn Support Lead workshop on Networking will be at the Tallangatta Community Centre, thanks to Towong Shire.
To have a sporting chance at being one of four Victorian clubs to win, clubs must register via the competition web page found on the Good Sports website, and tell them in 50 words or less, “How does your sporting club make summer great?”. Additionally, clubs need to answer, “What would your club spend it on if you won?”.
The Good Sports program is designed to help clubs enjoy their sport by providing club leaders with the support they need to create the best experience for members and guests. The benefits of becoming a good sports club include making your club safer and appealing, being a leader in your community, enhanced funding opportunities, staying ahead of the game and plenty of support.
