Leadership in Communities

LinC Project

The LinC (Leadership in Communities) Project was created in 2015 as a partnership between Leadership Lab and the three city councils, local philanthropics, tertiaries and local iwi with a vision of “Thriving leaders in local communities”. LinC has now worked with over 300 physical communities and communities of interest throughout Canterbury. In 2019 LinC is now offering an Incubator, Cultivator and Activator programme with a LinC Youth programme in design phase. 

The LinC Project (Leadership in Communities) was designed specifically to support and enhance local leadership and recognised change agents drawn from the voluntary, NGO and also central and local government sectors across Greater Christchurch www.lincproject.org.nz

Leadership Lab partnered with CERA, CCC, and a strategic alliance of philanthropic funders to design and implement a leadership development project working with community leaders from across Greater Christchurch. 

LinC 2018-2020 has taken the best of its programmes from 2015/16 which impacted on almost 100 community leaders, and has sought to reach further, grow smarter, and become more sustainable. With this in mind, LinC developed three core components; Cultivator, Incubator, and Activator, each with clear objectives, and customised support for communities.

Incubator:

Designed for those leading in their local community or community of interest… and wanting to grow and develop your leadership skills.

Cultivator:

Designed for those leading in their local community or community of interest… and wanting to grow and develop leaders around them. 

In 2019 there are 35 team members in the Incubator and 65 team members in the Cultivator. LinC Cultivator

Activator:

Public inspirational sessions provide opportunities for those involved in Incubator, Cultivator, and others outside of these programmes to connect. Activator kicked off in 2018 and event dates are available on Com this site LinC Activator

Puāwai/LinC Youth

Poipoia te kākano kia puāwai – Nurture the seed and it will blossom

Puāwai is a nine month experience for approximately 40 rangatahi/young people aged 15-18 that is designed to connect and develop a diverse network of “potential leaders, innovators, disruptors, drivers” around the region to enable them to contribute to their community. It develops real skills, knowledge and networks by participating in a bicultural programme with a focus on diversity and inclusion

Showing up differently: Collective approach to complex issues

This is a case study which outlines the key collaborative processes that have been developed in LinC and are transferable to other collaborative projects. “Showing up differently” framework
