Inivitation to take part in Leading in Communities

Invitation to take part in LEADING IN COMMUNITIES – flax roots leadership development


Are you or do you know someone…


  • Already involved in making positive change in your community and local environment? 
  • Noticing different ways that people lead in communities but don’t feel confident as a leader yourself?
  • Keen to learn and try out skills and tools in a group environment?
  • Part of a neighbourhood and local initiatives in the Waitakere Ranges?



If you’re thinking YES – or even MAYBE – then we would love to hear from you. Leading in Communities is a (free!) programme delivered by Community Waitakere with support from the Waitakere Ranges Local Board and input from guest presenters. You will take part in a series of interrelated, interactive workshops for nine weeks. Leading in Communities starts October 13th and you will need to commit to Tuesday sessions, 5:30-8:30pm.


Feedback from past participants:

“Inspiring - it is very relevant to what is going on in my world. Exciting! I can't wait to start using some of the information, tools and tips. Thank you.”

“Courageous conversations and working with conflict situations will be really useful tools for me to use.”

“I particularly found it useful to recognise the many ways we can lead. This gives me more confidence to continue on and to be part of the change in environmental and community health.”


Community Waitakere believes that leadership doesn’t occur within a small group of ‘special’ individuals but sits within all neighbourhoods so please don’t be shy – this opportunity is for you even if you don’t describe yourself as a leader!
