    Old-school leadership is well-intentioned, and it used to work, but doesn't anymore.

    Today's employees have very different expectations from their predecessors. They have a different definition of respect, a higher expectation about being involved in decision-making, a greater sense that they're owed exciting work and the expectation of fast career progression.

    On top of that, people's expectations of their managers have increased dramatically. When managers don't meet these expectations, staff can resign in droves, which companies can ill afford in 2023 when the labour market is so tight, and competition for top talent is at an all-time high.

    Join Diana Tapp, CEO of World Class Teams on February 15 to find out what old-school leadership principles your managers, supervisors and team leaders need to ditch right now so that you can confidently stem the flow of accomplished workers leaving your organisation.

    You'll walk away from this Breakfast Masterclass with:

    • A list of 3 old-school leadership principles EVERY manager in your business needs to stop doing immediately so that you don't lose your best people
    • An analysis of where your managers currently sit so that you can map weak points and improve individual effectiveness
    • A proven plan to create modern, high-performance leaders 
    • Five essential leadership skills your managers must master in 2023

    This Masterclass is for:

    Business owners, top level management and senior leaders who want to:

    • Upskill their managers, supervisors and team leaders
    • Achieve business growth and
    • Retain top talent

    Seats will fill up fast, so register now to secure your place.


    • Registration and barista coffee from 7.15am
    • Plated breakfast served promptly at 7.30am
    • Interactive Masterclass from 8.00am to 9.30am

    This event will also provide you with the opportunity to submit seating preferences so that you can strategically connect with other business leaders in attendance.

    The Federal Government’s recent industrial relations reforms are significant and have wide-ranging consequences for businesses from a compliance, enforcement and liability (including personal liability) perspective.

    Whilst the current reforms target matters such as pay secrecy, flexible working arrangements, sexual harassment at work and the prolonged use of fixed-term contracts, future reforms are expected to also cover the criminalisation of employee underpayments, regulation of the gig economy, the reduction of the use of casual employees, and requiring labour hire employees to be paid at the same rate as direct employees.

    In this free webinar, Daniel Iminjan from the employment law team at Matthews Folbigg Lawyers will explain the current reforms and provide practical guidance to assist employers to meet their legal obligations and to endeavour to reduce their risk of exposure to claims.
