Online webinar, At your computer,

Findings from a recent study highlight the importance of leaders and managers for the optimal operation and thus impact of AOD sector organisations. This webinar will provide an overview of the second of two related reports commissioned by NADA and VAADA: "AOD Sector Leaders and Managers: on Identity, Skills and Development." Dr Ramon Wenzel, Curtin University, will highlight findings and discuss implications as they relate to AOD sector leaders, peak bodies, and government entities.

In this webinar, you will explore:

  • Why AOD sector leaders and managers must help shape, translate, and implement business-strategy and human resource policies during day-to-day operations
  • How to re/design recruiting, careers and work itself to offer leadership opportunities that help psychologically shift workers’ into adopting meaningful leader identities
  • That supporting future leaders means systematically offering mentoring and feedback across an organisational climate that tolerates and constructively manages errors
  • How re/shaping education and training can better serve learning needs as well as signal what knowledge and skills are to be prioritised for becoming an effective leader and manager
