9th-10th August 2022 | Moora

You Don’t Have To Be  “Creative” To Be A Creative Leader!

Leadership is often associated with work environments however there are many examples in everyday life in the home, school and community where we use our leadership.

Coming to Moora in 2022: Creative Leadership Program 9-10th August

In this 2-day workshop led by Dr Shona Erskine, a registered psychologist, she will teach you how to harness the creativity that exists in everyone. Learn to connect, communicate and utilise creativity to get powerful, impactful and life-changing results.

This intensive 2-day leadership workshop is for Wheatbelt based organisations, Local Governments, community group leaders, teachers, artists and creative thinkers.

The program will give you the practical skills to build and strengthen your creative leadership skills and create an impact in your community.

Creativity and Innovation

Develop practical skills and theoretical knowledge to be a creative leader, build creative groups and activate creative minds.

This opportunity will support community leaders of all backgrounds to work together to produce creative solutions.

Creative thinking is a valuable skill for those working in any kind of industry. These skills are vital for a thriving community so that we can work together and build a stronger, more vibrant community.

Creative Practice Skills That Everyone Can Use, No Matter The Situation

The program covers two modules across two days:


Creative practice skills that everyone can use, no matter the situation. These micro-skills are easy to access and research has shown you will have a better chance at being creative when you need to be. No background in creative practice is needed to develop these skills.


Leadership processes for working with groups that need to think laterally and produce creative solutions. Creativity is most often a group endeavour. This module articulates the factors that guide groups toward creative solutions.

Each participant will be provided two packs of evidence-based resource cards to assist in their leadership development. These function as a manual to the information delivered while modelling many of the creative skills through their design.

Commuity Feedback

“This is a valuable course that many local government authorities could benefit from.” – Participant from the Augusta-Margaret River Shire

“The Creative Leadership Program has added value to the skills I already had and boost confidence in areas of being more leaderful in my community.” – Participant from Geraldton workshop

“I am grateful that you saw this as an important program and introduced it to the community. As an artist I sometimes feel like I am out on the periphery and not connected. I made a conscious decision to seek out ways to change this and give myself the opportunity to become more engaged. The program was good for me.” – Participant from Busselton workshop
