Apply Now For The Grain Academy Class Of 2019

We believe that the future of agriculture should be actively shaped rather than left to chance.

Therefore, in partnership with Grain SA and the NWU Business School, we have created a tailored leadership development programme (NQF Level 7).
The AgAcademy FOR LEADERS: LEADERSHIP IN THE CONNECTION ECONOMY programme equips young leaders in agriculture to lead, think and behave differently in order to make a profound difference in their enterprises, in their communities as well as in organised agriculture.

The following topics are addressed:

  •  The new worlds of the leader
  • Art of leading
  • Followership
  • Power and influence
  • Diversity
  • Personal wholeness
  • Being the leader
  • Communication
  • Leading people
  • Leading teams
  • Giving direction
  • Change and transformation
