IML Conference 2018: Leading Well – People & Performance.

A good leader motivates, develops and challenges their team to achieve their best results, but the skills needed to successfully manage high performance is not always obvious or easy to develop. Trust, emotional intelligence, and being able to adapt when confronted with disruption, are some of the essential skills that drive an efficient and accomplished team.

The IML Conference 2018 series explores the topic of Leading Well and our focus will be on people and performance.  This conference will be an interactive day including keynote presentations, panel sessions, case studies and Q&A’s. For the third year running, this must-attend event uncovers the latest management and leadership thinking.

Our industry leaders will cover the following topics:

Trust Matters:  

5 Hidden Trust Decelerators that Sabotage Leadership Results

In today’s rapidly changing world, leaders with a good grasp of trust – who know how to judge, build and rely on it – have an enormous competitive advantage. But surprisingly only 47% of Australian employees always trust their immediate manager and this drops even more when it comes to senior management at 24% (2016 SunSuper Australian Employee Insights Report).

Trust is a leadership competency. It’s also a discipline. According to Google Work, it is one of the most important factors that contribute to a high-performance team.

In this session, attendees will discover how trust issues are showing up in their organisation and best practices to create a high-performance environment.

Approaching emotional intelligence: 

How emotionally intelligent leaders handle performance management

How do you manage under performance in a way that keeps relationships cordial, self-esteem intact, and produces positive results?

According to TalentSmart, emotional intelligence is the strongest predictor of performance, explaining a full 58% of success in all types of jobs. What does this mean to your professional development? Well, it might be the line in the sand that separates a “boss” from a great leader.

Being able to inspire, build confidence and motivate others is a skill and is something that can be learned and practiced. In this session we will explore, discuss and try-out the approach, that emotionally intelligent managers and leaders apply. You’ll leave this session with tools, techniques and the latest strategies to managing performance.

Leading through disruption:

Rethinking Leadership – A Different Paradigm

As companies transform and new digital organisational models emerge, agile and pre-emptive leaders are now in demand. The markets are becoming increasingly complex, and a new model of leadership is required that is adaptable and nimble enough to address the volatile, uncertain and complex world we have today.

In particular, a strong foundation on values and ethics will ensure that the leader is able to withstand the constant pressure of change that threatens to blow them off course.

Leadership focuses on engaging and driving people through transformational change that is required to ensure the organisation remains sustainable and effective into the future.
