Racheal submitted a
successful Expression of Interest to participate in the Sync Leadership Program
held 22-26 October 2014.
In 2015, the Sync
Leadership Program will again run in October with expressions of interest managed
by the Arts Infrastructure Division.
Sync is a training program that focuses on
the interplay between leadership and disability. It provides a fresh
perspective and challenges deep-seated thinking about leadership and
disability. Designed to be to be different to other training programs for
people with disability, it takes its inspiration and name from syncopation –
the emphasis on the un-emphasised beat.
Sync provided Racheal with the essential tools to help
her reach her goals. “The Sync Leadership Program is radically different to
other leadership programs that I have participated in as it was more about
exploring and discussing individual strength and weaknesses. Also the tools
include identifying personality and leadership styles, which has helped shape
my thinking when collaborating with other leaders in the arts industry.”
