BP Leaders for Life


"The essence of good leadership development is enabling people to recognize their strengths and develop them fully."

BP Leaders for Life is the Surf Life Saving New Zealand leadership programme. 


The BP Leaders for Life programme emphasises the development of leaders at a local level who are skilled at working collaboratively with, and through, others to build and sustain Surf Life Saving in New Zealand.  This programme is part of a national strategy to support a wide range of leadership development activity for members right across the Surf Life Saving community. 


  1. Strength based - builds on existing strengths and the application of those strengths to be effective.
  2. Tailored - informed by both individual aspirations and requirements of the leadership role.
  3. Personal responsibility - leaders take responsibility for their own learning and application of that learning.
  4. Accessible - leadership support is available when it is needed.
  5. Development support -  adult learning principles; 'learn - do - reflect'


  • Capable leaders at all levels
  • Leader satisfaction
  • Sustainable organisation
