Testimonial – Leadership 101

Dion Fleming, Arable farmer, Manawatu/Rangitikei (April course 2019)   
I recently took part in a leadership development course run  by Federated Farmers and Sue Pickering of Develop Ltd. I run an agriculture contracting and a large scale grain handling business yet this course was the first real ‘personal development’ I had undertaken. Although leading up to the event I was feeling a little uncertain of what was to come, I’m incredibly glad I took the time to get off the farm and spend some time with likeminded individuals to learn about the leadership and learning styles of ourselves and others who we interact with. The course was very interactive and engaging , I was made to step out of my comfort zone in the way of public speaking and I learnt some valuable skills in doing so.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is in or inspiring to a management roll, it will unlock you multitude of tools within yourself for confidently dealing with any staff, clients or presentations you may be faced with. All I can really say is to kick ya boots off, dust off ya town shoes and get into it. You won’t regret it.
