Conservation Leadership: Learning at WildTeam

What is conservation leadership? Conservation leadership is the ability to motivate others to achieve a shared vision that benefits nature and the people that depend on it. What is a conservation leader? A conservation leader is someone who has a set of key qualities that they can use to help motivate those around them. For example, a conservation leader will have qualities such as empathy, bravery, and commitment. A conservation leader understands and values those qualities. More importantly, a conservation leader is able to express those qualities in a way that is appropriate for the cultural context in which they are working. A conservation leader will also be able to express those qualities in a way that is authentic to their values and personality. Each conservation leader will, therefore, be different and have their own style of doing things. Who can be a conservation leader? Anyone can be a conservation leader because they can express their conservation leadership qualities in every role they take. For example, a conservation leader can help motivate a boss and team-mates when they start their first conservation job. As they progress to managing teams, then a conservation leader can motivate the team they manage and the stakeholders involved in their project work. As they become more senior, a conservation leader can motivate the organisation they lead and the donors and other organisations they partner with. How can you get qualified as a conservation leader? We have created a series of 5 conservation leadership courses, each with a particular theme that encompasses a range of connected leadership qualities. We will run the 5 courses in sequence and then repeat them, so you can start your journey on any course. It is up to you which course(s) you take. If you do take and get certified in all 5, then you will be awarded an overall certificate as a conservation leader. The first course focuses on the theme of learning. When is the first course? 16th November - 14th December 2022. What will my learning experience be like? You can't become a conservation leader by reading some theory and taking an exam. Neither can you become a conservation leader by someone instructing you how to be one. This course, therefore, has been designed to be an experiential process, facilitated by the course leader. The process involves weekly, live, online group sessions in which you explore each leadership quality and devise a way to express that quality more effectively in the following week. The course is run over 4 weeks, with live group sessions every Wednesday, starting on Wednesday 16th November at 5pm GMT. The total learning time per week will be 2.5 – 3.5 hours. Who is providing this training? WildTeam UK is a not-for-profit charity that designs and delivers training in key skills that help conservationists to increase their impact. So far we have trained over 1,450 conservationists from 91 countries.
