Agricultural Leadership

The purpose of this project was to validate the leadership competency profile that was developed as a part of the New Markets and Future Skills in Agriculture project and to develop an on-line leadership assessment tool that will allow farmers to assess their agricultural leadership skills.

The project provided aggregate data to CAHRC as to the leadership competency strengths and weaknesses among farmers in Canada. It also used the results to identify gaps in the leadership competencies of agricultural producers. This will assist with the future development of leadership and human resource tools and/or programs in forthcoming projects.
