Why 'Leaders in Community'?

People thrive in communities, which thrive with leaders, who thrive with support.

Every one of us benefits from being part of communities where we feel a sense of belonging and contribution. These might be our physical communities, the streets where we live, our football club, culture group, church, fellow artists or surfing mates.  These communities are the result of individuals within them showing initiative, hosting gatherings and organising initiatives….basically leading.

But what happens when these leaders get exhausted, over stretched and sometimes stop their quiet leadership roles? When these communities begin to fragment then each of us involved in that community also feel the impact.

LinC is about supporting and growing these leaders to keep them thriving, renewed and in the game.

Applications for Cultivator and Incubator close on December 6, 2018. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
