Developing your Capacity

People are at the forefront of change. That’s why we’ve modelled our business on the blue wren, a bird that is adaptive, dynamic and agile – the very needs of your corporate and community leaders.

At BlueWren Connections we develop and challenge leaders to be adaptive, inquisitive and reflective using programs of change management, research, wellbeing and leadership.

With your business in focus, we will cultivate your leaders by merging foresight and insight, fostering evolution, and guiding them to take flight as community and business leaders.

Through the application of our models, individuals and teams will enhance their capabilities, effectively address current job requirements, proactively anticipate future challenges, and make valuable contributions to the organisation’s success and sustainability.

Matt ProngerAustralia’s CEO Challenge

I have been a continual attendee to Heather Ellis’ “Building Rural Leaders” Leading in the Central West Program for over three years now. Prior to attending I was somewhat opposed to the idea of the seminar’s content, however was extremely shocked and found it exceptionally compelling, enough so to attend the full three days each and every year. Each seminar is extremely mentally stimulating and Heather keeps it interactive to ensure that attendees are not getting bored. Everyone, especially those in the Rural Industry will benefit from Heather and her leadership content.

Colour Spectrums gave me great insights into my team members and better understanding of how my colleagues work and react. How to work with my immediate team. Appreciation of the skills of those around me. I learnt so much about myself and I enjoyed the Industry relevant anecdotes from the presenter.
