Why an SYA Future Leaders Program?
SYA recognises that in this modern fast-paced world, good grades and a degree are not enough for success – we must constantly push the boundaries of our personal and professional skill to get ahead as individuals and as a community.
How does it work?
We have three programs to help you grow in your personal and professional arenas, no matter what your background.
[Level 1] The Lighthouse Workshop
Leadership starts with Self Awareness! Taking a page from the leading executive development programs run by Fortune 500 companies, the SYA Future Leaders Program begins your leadership journey with The Lighthouse Workshop. Come and look yourself in the mirror in a way you’ve never seen before!
The Lighthouse Workshop is a dynamic and interactive personal leadership workshop that helps you accelerate your effectiveness in leading yourself and others. The workshop will equip you to generate Maximum Value in any aspect of your life that you deem important.
Through a series of fun games, exciting challenges and intimate group sharing, you will gain a unique insight into your mindsets, automatic behaviours and the impact that this has on what matters to you.
You will leave the workshop:
Energized, invigorated and motivated;
Clear on what maximum value means to you in each aspect of your life;
In full ownership and responsibility to know and create the results you want every day; and
Ready to accelerate your leadership journey.
[Level 2] Success to Significance – Find your Purpose, Shape your Influence

The Women’s Leadership Circle (Empowerment & Leadership Growth of CALD Women)
Sikh Youth Australia has asked *Benaifer Bhadha to facilitate an intensive leadership workshop for women as a part of their Future Leader Program for this year. This is an invitation only program – please contact organisers for access code to register.
The Women’s Leadership Circle is an intensive and experiential personal workshop where women come together to explore their inner power, develop unique leadership skills, learn courageous communication techniques and discover their personal values, purpose and vision.
This workshop will guide you:
In a deep exploration of the internal and external obstacles that prevent us from stepping into our natural ability to lead.
You will become grounded in your ability to identify and act according to your core values and purpose.
Through reflection and experiential exercises, you will discover the power of your voice and practice expressing who you are and the vision you have for your future.
This workshop emphasises creating a safe and supportive space. Each member of the circle practices leadership listening in a non-judgmental and non-shaming technique taught by the facilitator. The goal of this intensive workshop is to discover your personal power as a woman.
