Women in Sport Leadership – Learn Support Lead

Alpine Valley Community Leadership Presenter at Learn Support LeadWe 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.

Women In Sport Leadership – Learn Support Lead

Expressions of Interest for 2019/2020 Alpine Indigo Program are Now Open.


Learn Support Lead: Activating Female Leaders In Sport is a 12 month female mentoring and leadership program designed to activate the uptapped skills and experience of local women on and off the field.

Women continue to be under-represented in visible leadership roles across the sport and recreation sector. Grassroots sport and recreation clubs play an important role to drive positive change.

The program includes emerging leaders, and established leaders who will act as mentors.  The program will guide participants through a series of workshops to build confidence, leadership capability, and develop networks within the North East region that will ultimately allow them to realise their leadership potential as players, coaches, administrators or committee members as well as other roles within their club.  

We are seeking participants from a variety of sporting codes and experiences.  Expressions of Interest are now open.

Please note workshops will be conducted on Wednesday evenings on a monthly basis commencing in August 2019 in the Alpine and Indigo Shires.
