WORKSHOP 2: The art of intentional leadership

When stepping into frontline leadership, often staff are thrown in the deep end with little to no formal management development. As a result, the transition to a new management and leadership role can be stressful, unsuccessful and can have far-reaching implications for the business. In this workshop, David Pich will introduce the antidote to the accidental manager and will describe the key elements that lie at the heart of intentional leadership.

  • What is an intentional leader, and how to make a difference in the workplace
  • The 6 layers of intentional leadership and how it can be used to support your transition
  • How organisations can spot and create intentional leaders
  • Using an interactive app to determine your intentional leadership score

WORKSHOP 3: How to design a future-proof learning strategy  

The faster technology changes, the quicker your employees’ skills are out of date. In fact, the current ‘shelf life’ of a skill is now less than 5 years (Source: LinkedIn). So the challenge for HR leaders is this – how do you design a learning strategy for your people that won’t be redundant tomorrow?

In this value-packed workshop, we’ll show you:

  • Why you must think holistically about your learning strategy to bridge the skills divide
  • The key components of a modern skills-focused learning strategy, and the role of content
  • What a modern content experience looks like (and what to avoid!)
  • How to ‘future-proof’ your strategy so you and your people stay skilled-up and relevant

Chris Broughton, Learning Expert, Cornerstone OnDemand 

11:30am

WORKSHOP 4: Workforce transformation: The next generation of employee experience

Poor recruiting and onboarding processes can negatively impact on the employee experience as well as the employer’s brand. In this discussion, Colin Pont from Dell Boomi and Linda Hamill from VMWare will weigh in on how to transform HR processes and deliver an exceptional employee experience.

  • Understand why employee experience is critical to both attracting and retaining talent
  • Reduce manual effort, streamline collaboration and improve employee engagement
  • Achieve ROI and savings through technology integration and delivery consolidation

WORKSHOP 6: Psychological safety in the workplace

Chronic stress, depression and anxiety cost Australian businesses more than $14 billion every year through absenteeism, reduced work performance, increased turnover and compensation claims. Under the Australian Work Health & Safety (WHS) legislation, employers are required to take steps to protect workers against risks to their physical and mental health. Compliance is mandatory and a breach can have potential for serious penalties. In this workshop, Tania will discuss:

  • Understanding the characteristics of a psychologically safe workplace
  • Recognising the tangible and intangible costs of psychological harm
  • Identifying workplace risk factors
  • Integrating protective factors to reduce psychological injury

Tania Murdock, Wellbeing Working Group Committee, QLD Law Society
