ABSTRACT

This paper presents some key findings of a research project that evaluated the performance of a customised, six-month leadership development program (LDP). This program was designed for 20 emerging leaders who were promoting sustainable urban water management (SUWM) in the Sydney region of New South Wales. Here, the term leader is used to describe individuals who drive processes of influence that occur within the context of relationships with their collaborators, and involve establishing direction (vision), aligning resources, generating motivation and providing inspiration (see Kotter, 2001; Rost, 1993).
