How To Build A Strong Bench Of Leaders

Thursday 17th November 2022  |  11.00am to 12.00pm

The war on talent has left businesses short on leaders. 89% of organisations report they don't have a strong enough bench to fill leadership roles. This leadership gap is a significant risk given the challenges of recruiting talent in the most competitive job market in four decades.

And it's not just senior leadership positions CEOs and HR executives are worried about. Middle managers have become more important than ever in this new era of hybrid work, with increased expectations and pressure on managers to keep their teams intact and motivated.

Responsible for delivering strategy and reporting to senior management while checking in with each team member, middle managers have become the "glue that holds everything together". They are critical to fostering the business’s culture, cohesion, connection and sense of belonging, particularly in workplaces where people don’t come in every day.

How will you overcome the leadership gap and build a strong bench of leaders in your organisation? How will you ensure you have the leaders you need today and in the future?

Join us for a free, not-to-be-missed webinar where Australia's #1 High-Performance Team Consultant, Diana Tapp, will reveal how to build a strong bench of leaders in your organisation.

In this live webinar, you’ll discover:

  • The 5 essential skills every leader and manager must master
  • Why managers are the missing piece in the ‘war for talent’ puzzle
  • The 3 major capability gaps where most leaders struggle
  • How to upskill your managers and keep your best people
  • The 2 big mistakes CEO’s make in their succession planning

How To Create A One Page Plan To Drive Customer Decision Making 

Wednesday 7th September 2022  |  11.00am to 12.00pm

Finding a strategy that immediately gets the attention of potential leads is often a big challenge for small businesses and despite investing a lot of time and money into their marketing efforts, business owners often see little to no results.

Direct response marketing is a strategy that encourages an immediate response from customers in order to quickly generate new leads. The response can be any action such as purchasing your product, reading your marketing content, subscribing to your newsletter, sharing your post on social media or signing up for your loyalty rewards program.

Direct response marketing educates instead of selling….It costs very little to produce….It’s targeted….The results are trackable and measurable….And it can be created in one single page, making it the easiest and fastest way to create a marketing strategy to propel your business growth.

This free webinar has been specifically designed for small business owners and managers who want to get results and return on their marketing investment. Join us to find out:

  • What direct response marketing is
  • How it can benefit your business
  • Why every small business should have a direct response marketing plan
  • How to map out your own sophisticated plan in a single page

      3 Ways To Empower Employees To Take More Initiative

      Tuesday 16th November 2021, 11.00am to 12.00pm

      As a leader, are you tired of having employees who wait to be told what to do? And even when you do give them a task, just do the bare minimum? Do you feel frustrated when they find a problem and pass it on to you rather than using their initiative and coming up with a solution?

      Taking initiative means seeing something that needs to be done and deciding to do it without being asked. It means anticipating and preventing problems and going beyond their everyday responsibilities, even if they have no formal position of authority.

      When this proactive culture is missing, your company risks losing ground to competitors. While YOUR employees say, "it's not my job", THEIR employees are going above and beyond to find ways to improve processes, increase customer satisfaction, cut costs and introduce innovative new products and services.

      The good news is that empowering people to take more initiative is an easily learnable skill.

      Join us for a free, not-to-be-missed webinar where Australia's #1 High-Performance Team Consultant, Diana Tapp, will reveal three powerful ways leaders can create a proactive culture, empower staff to take initiative and help drive your business forward.

      During this webinar you will also discover:

      • The right questions to ask to encourage initiative
      • What is "flearning" and why is it so important
      • How to respond with curiosity, not judgement
      • 5 ways to create opportunities for your team to show initiative
      • How to create an environment that rewards questions, not just compliance
      • Tips to promote forward-thinking and diverse ideas

            COVID-19 In The Workplace

            From potential mandatory vaccinations to keeping employees safe, businesses are facing never-before-seen COVID-19 workplace challenges.

            5 Powerful Ways To Improve Your EQ To Become A Great Leader

            Thursday 5th August 2021, 11.00am to 12.00pm

            When you think of a world class manager or leader, what characteristics come to mind?

            You might picture someone who never lets emotions get the better of them, no matter how stressful the situation. Or you might imagine a person who has the complete trust of their team, encourages idea sharing, is easy to talk to, and builds strong connections. These are all the hallmarks of someone with high emotional intelligence (EQ).

            Being smart is not enough. What distinguishes the great managers and leaders from the average ones is not their IQ but their EQ.

            Being able to read people's signals and react appropriately is vital. When managers have low emotional intelligence, problems such as distrust, conflict, and silos arise. Issues are avoided and not dealt with, which results in increased staff turnover, higher absenteeism, lower engagement, and poor productivity.

            The good news is that EQ is a learnable skill. Join us for a not-to-be-missed webinar where Australia's #1 High-Performance Team Consultant, Diana Tapp, will reveal five powerful ways to improve your EQ to help you become an exponentially better leader.

            In this webinar you will discover:

            • Five powerful strategies for improving your leadership EQ
            • How to manage your emotions in stressful '5% moments'
            • How to respond in high stakes situations to get the outcome you need AND keep people on board
            • Practical tools & techniques you can start implementing straight away

                  Bullying And Harassment In The Workplace

                  Thursday 27th May 2021, 11.00am to 11.45am AEST

                  Bullying and harassment in the workplace can take many forms. It can be overt and obvious, or it can be subtle and less visible. No form of workplace bullying and harassment is acceptable.

                  Employers and managers have a responsibility to provide employees with a safe workplace free from bullying and harassment. Failure to do so is liable to cause disruption to an employer’s business, reduce employee morale, and expose the employer to significant legal risk.

                  • the damage and legal risks caused by bullying and harassment in the workplace;

                  • how to investigate bullying and harassment claims if and when they are made; and

                  How To Become A True Leader, Not A Manager

                  Thursday 5th November 2020, 9.00am AEDT

                  Do you have managers or leaders in your business?

                  A manager's focus is on ensuring things go to plan, and that the team meets expectations. An excellent manager ensures the ‘day to day’ is humming.

                  True leaders, on the other hand, are future-focused. Their time and energy is used on moving the business forward, empowering and inspiring their team, encouraging change and taking their staff somewhere new.

                  The transition from manager to leader is essential for your career and for business growth, but won't happen by itself. People need to learn a completely different set of skills to succeed in this position that is both a huge responsibility and a privilege.

                  Social Media in the Modern Workplace - What all Employers Need to Know

                  Thursday 3rd September 2020, 11.00am AEST

                  The last decade has witnessed the rise of ‘social media’ as a primary form of communication and interaction. Workplaces have not been spared from social media’s influence, and the use (or misuse) of social media by employees can often cause significant headaches for employers and businesses.This is most clearly illustrated by the recent legal proceeding between Israel Folau and Rugby Australia, as well as a trove of unfair dismissal and workplace bullying claims involving inappropriate online behaviour.

                  However, social media can also be an effective tool for employers and businesses – not only in the areas of marketing, internal communication and customer outreach, but also for risk management (for example, for conducting ‘background’ searches about prospective employees).

                  In this webcast, Matthews Folbigg lawyer Peter Doughman will discuss:

                  • how social media has stretched the boundaries of the modern workplace beyond the physical office or premises;
                  • the value of IT / social media policies;
                  • how social media can be used by employers and businesses to their advantage; and
                  • what every employer should be on the ‘lookout’ for!

                  Proven Strategies To Improve Engagement On Social Media

                  Thursday 3rd September 2020, 8.00am AEST

                  Social media marketing is an essential part of doing business in 2020 and offers incredible opportunities for all sizes and types of businesses to engage with new audiences and grow their brand awareness.

                  Done right it’s like networking on steroids! However many businesses find that despite investing a lot of time on multiple platforms their social media posting delivers absolutely no results. 

                  This webinar is for business owners and leaders who want to get reliable results and return on investment from the rapidly changing social media space. Delegates will learn which platforms will work for their type of business, what kinds of social media content deliver positive engagement and how to create a strategic and effective social media plan.
