Mini-Workshop

Negotiation and influence are crucial leadership skills, whether to generate buy-in for a new idea, build a business case, or influence a pay rise. But research finds that women are often reluctant to exercise their influencing power, as they are more likely than men to get labelled as bossy or aggressive. 5 in 10 women are doubtful if they will benefit from negotiating their worth at work. In this interactive mini-workshop, Sonali will help you build your courage and learn to communicate your worth with confidence.

Break-Out Session

Panel

Most people don't see themselves as biased towards people of different genders, races, and ages. Yet in virtually every area of modern life, disparities remain. We all have unconscious biases, so it is essential to recognise how other people's biases affect you, as well as how your own biases may impact others. When you learn to identify these blind spots, you have the power to make a change. Sharing best practices and lessons learned from first-hand experiences, this panel will investigate what helps break down these biases, and what you can do to create systems in which everyone can thrive.


- How to stop individual and organisational biases from holding you back

- Recognise and manage your own biases

- Harness the power of diversity

Summit Day 2

18 Mar

Case Study

Humans are social beings, it's natural for us to interact and cooperate with each other, and much of our happiness is found in relationships with others. But how is it that you can have a team of the most talented people but still fail to see them performing as a cohesive unit? Creating a high performing team hinges on healthy team dynamics and this depends on the individual differences and personalities of everyone in the team. Leonie will share her lessons bringing people together from different industries and cultures to create high performing teams.


- Adapt your leadership style for different personality types

- Encourage cohesion and collaboration

- Motivate your team towards a common goal

- Adapt your leadership style for different personality types

  • Leonie Muldoon Chief Executive Officer Department for Trade, Tourism & Investment

Break-Out Session

Case Study

The national average job tenure in Australia is just over three years. At Coopers Brewery, the average tenure of their 250 staff is 12 years. Employee turnover is not only a cost to organisations. It can impact team momentum and morale. As a leader, you must drive a positive workplace culture that is centred on employee experience. Melanie will share some of the strategies that Coopers are using to retain talent and how, as a leader, you can ensure your team is engaged and aligned with the company values.

- Create a positive workplace culture

- Boost employee experience and retention

  • Melanie Cooper Director, Finance, Corporate Affairs & Company Secretary Coopers Brewery

Case Study

Two-thirds of transformation projects fail. As a leader, you need to ensure your organisation becomes a part of the standout statistic, not the norm. To influence sustainable change, you need to be tactical and understand the cultural change required. Having worked as a change consultant, to now driving change as an executive leader, Kellie will share practical tips on how you can be a powerful change agent.


- Understand embedded tensions to drive sustainable change

- Create accountability and generate buy-in from stakeholders

- Learn from failure

  • Kellie Collins General Manager, Health, Safety & Environment Adelaide Brighton

Mini-Workshop

Communication is crucial when it comes to change management. When change is communicated proactively, clearly, and consistently, you ensure employees across your organisation understand what’s happening. Once employees understand, they can accept and adopt. Take control of the narrative by communicating early and often, staying ahead of the “grapevine”, and setting the tone and content.


- Communicate consistently, frequently and clearly

- Conversations versus information

- Build trust in times of uncertainty   

  • Emma Frazer Director & Principal Consultant No 8 Consulting

Panel

When men are engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of organisations see progress — compared to only 30% of organisations where men are not.

- Engage men as champions for change

- Understand gendered leadership traits

- How to seek out male mentors and sponsors
