Join the IWC & AWA for an Online Team Leadership Course


The International WaterCentre (IWC) in partnership with the Australian Water Association (AWA) is proud to announce the latest round of our popular Online Team Leadership Course for Young Water Professionals (YWPs) is now open for registrations.

IWC/AWA Online Team Leadership Course for YWP’s July/August 2017

Effectively leading teams can be difficult, especially when leaders need to exert influence across boundaries without much authority. YWPs can also find themselves in the ‘team leadership hot seat’ early in their careers without the tools, experience and confidence to excel.

This five week, online short course aims to equip YWPs with the knowledge and skills they need to become outstanding team leaders. The course will utilise a variety of media and interactive activities (e.g. videos, readings, online discussions and quizzes) to help you engage with the course content. The course will explore the following themes:

  • An introduction to leadership in the water sector.
  • An introduction to leadership development.
  • An introduction to ‘self-leadership’ as the foundation for all other forms of leadership development.
  • Guidance on team leadership, including fundamental concepts, tools and tips.
  • Additional guidance on leading cross-boundary teams in the water sector, including virtual teams.
