    Abstract

    The Baptist Union of Victoria (BUV) is committed to developing an organisational culture that enables successive generations of leaders to emerge and be empowered to lead. This project interviewed a group of emerging/emerged leaders and leadership development experts. It identified seven important factors for the emergence and practice of mainly Generation Y emerging leadership. To grow the seeds of emergence requires: a culture of leadership development focused on mission; giving leaders opportunities with an apprenticeship of learning by doing; intentional mentoring; an empowering and collaborative leadership model; inclusion of gender, age and cultural diversity; financially sustainable training and ministry; and a reframed definition of leadership.
