Defence and its impact on SA’s economy

This year’s GLF participants were provided an insiders’ view of the defence industry during a recent visit to ASC and hearing from a panel of key players including the Naval Group, Saab, Lockheed Martin, Defence SA and the Defence Teaming Centre.

This month we will focus on very different South Australian challenges with a visit to Baptist Care Homeless Centre and exploring other social issues at Uniting Communities, including a debate on the Cashless Welfare Card.

Leadership Thinking
How can organisations get their ethics so wrong?
Rather than living up to its motto of “A certain friend in uncertain times”, AMP has been exposed at the Banking Royal Commission as unlawfully deducting service fees from customers and lying about this to the regulator.

Originally formed in 1849 as a non-profit life insurance company and mutual society, AMP now faces the prospect of criminal prosecution for misleading ASIC and multiple class actions from shareholders. And it is not the only financial institution in the Commission’s sights for undertaking unethical and illegal behavior. As Martin Luther King said, “The time is always right to do what is right”.

Former judge of the Supreme Court of South Africa Professor Mervyn King SC’s recent talk on the important of companies and shareholders having a broader vision than short term profits is a good reminder.

The Leaders Institute underpins all its development programs with ethical, purpose-based leadership and also delivers tailored governance and ethics training for boards and leadership groups. Contact us to discuss your needs and take part in our upcoming Think Tank.

Inequality in Australia or a fair go for all?
Is Australia an egalitarian country or do we have growing class divisions?

If we do have classes, what are they, does it matter and what impact does it have on people’s lives?

A series of Podcasts on Radio National explores these complex issues.

Upcoming development programs
share with colleagues and HR managers
The Integral Leader Program is designed for emerging leaders who want to become more strategic and effective change leaders and feel confident about their leadership. Modules include leading teams and communication for change. It is a really good program for helping people who have moved from technical leader to team leader thrive. The 11.5 day program begins on June 5. Click here for more information.
Our Leading Edge Peer Mentoring Program gets underway in July. The program provides a confidential environment for a small group of participants to bring their real world challenges for discussion and to gain practical ideas on applying leadership thinking to tackle the challenges. It has proven useful for anyone, including people who have done the GLF some years ago and want a refresher and to reconnect with a strong peer group of support. Click here for more information.
2019 GLF - Dates are out and applications are open for next year’s GLF. Information sessions featuring alumni members are being held between June and August. Click here to book.

Leadership and performing under duress

GLF Alumni are invited to a reflective and powerful discussion on the Application of Leadership and High-Performance Teams Under Duress on Thursday, May 24, 5.30pm.

Led by business leader, leadership mentor and Australian Army Soldier Alex Heidenreich, the evening will explore a range of leadership principles with a view to challenging existing conventions, encouraging alumni to critically and personally assess the art and science of leadership.

As a former commander serving in Afghanistan and Timor-Leste, Alex gained valuable insight into developing high-performance teams to solve complex problems in hostile and dynamic environments. This discussion has proved to be very thought provoking for GLF participants in previous years.

Brought to us by Defence Reserves Support it will be held at the Army Museum at the Keswick Barracks. Employers are also welcome and will hear about the benefits of employing a reservist. Book your free ticket here – tickets are limited.

Governor’s Table Think Tank: Banking corporate culture:
what can we learn and what can the little guys do?

Join us for a World Cafe exploration of the current banking crisis from the perspective of understanding the lessons for our own organisations and exploring the connection between broader societal culture and the ways in banks have fallen prey to poor corporate behaviour.

What’s our part of the mess as customers and members of society? And how can we, as the little guys outside the system, help support the internal cultural transformations that we are being told are required?

Josie McLean, one of our lead GLF facilitators and founder of The Partnership, will facilitate this session. Josie is an expert in systemic thinking and organisational cultural evolution.

The Think Tank will be held on Tuesday, June 5, from 6 – 7.30pm at UniSA’s City West campus. Book your seat at the table here.
