Sharpening Skills and Trading Up
The Covid Economy has underscored shifting priorities for Vocational Education and Training and amplified the need for a re-balancing in tertiary education between universities and Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs), now under the umbrella of Te Pūkenga. Session 3 on 23 June will provide interesting perspectives in a conversation between Diane Lithgow, Skills Consulting Group, Helen Down, Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce and Ben Naughton, WITT.
Leaders Leading Better
The fourth and final session on 30 June addresses the twin challenges for education leaders of overcoming resistance to change and building mentally healthy leadership teams. Cathy Sheppard, BSI People Skills, suggests that Covid has shown we need to prepare students for a very different world from what we grew up in, with the pace of change increasing exponentially. She asks how can what we’ve learnt recently change the way we, as leaders in education, lead better when it comes to communication, adaptability, resilience and culture change, so our students will be better equipped to respond to the needs of humanity going forward?
Mentally Healthy Workplaces
Anne Riches, The Mindfield Navigator, Sydney, in a conversation with ELF convener Lyall Lukey, discusses creating mentally healthy workplaces and learning spaces.
In the Covid era a major change focus for leaders in all organisations is on mentally healthy workplaces. How can your learning community be an open, safe and supportive mentally healthy workplace?
Drawing from her own personal and professional experience as a change leadership specialist working with hundreds of organisations in Australia and around the world, Anne increasingly works with leaders to be mentally healthy themselves; recognise, support and effectively manage colleagues who are struggling and create psychologically safe places to work.
