    Managing a Remote Workforce

    Gone are the days of managers and teams being co-located and eyeballing each other daily.  Remote working occurs because officers are in the field, sometimes for long periods of time, and when officers have arrangements to work from locations other than the office.  Since COVID, this has extended to people who live interstate and only intermittently travel to the council area.

    For managers, leading hybrid teams creates a range of challenges and requires skills and approaches which are different from the traditional leading by observation model.

    This webinar will explore the challenges of managing remote workforces and provide a series of approaches to ensure that your team is able to work together and that individuals can thrive, regardless of where they are working from.

    This panel includes:

    Dan McPhersonGroup Manager People, Customer and Corporate Services, Lockyer Valley Regional Council

    Mark Crawley - Chief Executive Officer, Carpentaria Shire Council

    Heather KellyDirector Organisational Business Services, Cook Shire Council


    Day/Date: Thursday 20 June

    Time: 10:00am - 11:30am

    Cost: $110.00 per council officer

    Please Note: This webinar will not be recorded.

    One of the challenges local government leaders face is that our organisations need to be chameleons, constantly shifting approach to meet varied demands.

    At times, we are innovators, leading from the front and providing a pathway for our communities that they may not yet have considered or not be fully understanding of.  At other times, our role is to sit back and allow community to step up and lead themselves, perhaps with some facilitation or enabling actions at our end.

    As with all leaders, it is easy to get stuck in one role, creating a culture, approach and mindset that matches the chosen leadership model. 

    The 2024 Local Government Conference will explore the two approaches and consider what to use when and how to adapt local government leadership to meet both the immediate and long-term needs of your community.

    Join colleagues from across Queensland as we explore what leadership in local government looks like, learning from experienced and new local government officers, academics and thought leaders.

    Venue: Shangri-La The Marina, Cairns - 1 Pier Point Road, Cairns.

    Seeking and accepting feedback for performance improvement Webinar

    Feedback is a gift but it is one which is often not taken full advantage of.  This workshop will encourage you to seek the feedback you need to improve your performance, interactions with others and reputation.  You will discover techniques for requesting feedback from colleagues, superiors and direct reports.

    You will then explore how to take on that feedback and respond to the gift of others’ perceptions and views, even where these may be critical.   The ability to seek and accept feedback has many benefits including to foster growth, improve relationships and create a positive work environment.
