Emerging Leaders mid-year graduation

The latest graduates of the People Leaders Emerging Leadership Scholarship programme were acknowledged at an event on 27th June 2017 following the completion of this series' workshops.

These individuals successfully completed six days of professional development over a six month period that focused on building and developing their core business acumen, leadership capability and expanding their natural strengths.

We were delighted that so many managers were able to attend the celebration in support of the graduates. Series Two for this year commences on 20th July 2017.

New graduates from the NZIML Emerging Leaders programme.Congratulations to the following graduates (photo from left to right):

  • Christine Edgley - Resource Management Officer at Invercargill City Council;
  • Sophie Mowday - GM Marketing and Fundraising at KidsCan Charitable Trust;
  • Jason Straker - Financial Accountant at Ravensdown;
  • Will Bodeker - Laboratory Team Leader at Ravensdown;
  • Chris Salkeld - Wastewater Supervisor at Sicon Limited;
  • Bronwyn Sutton - Admissions Manager at UC International College;
  • Bevan White - Mechanical Test Lead at Martin Aircraft Company; and
  • Gareth Clarke - Senior Policy Planner at Invercargill City Council.

Completing the intensive leadership programme over a period of six months as a cohort of learners has allowed participants to keep each other accountable in applying their learning in the workplace.

"I found the Emerging Leaders programme a challenging but rewarding experience, both for my own personal development and the way that I lead my team." - Will Bodeker (Laboratory Team Leader at Ravensdown).

Upcoming People Leaders' Operational Leadership workshop

Is it time to challenge your thinking to maximise productivity, shape positive change and create harmony between your vision, values and process? Then this may be the perfect time for you to experience one of our senior management programmes - the People Leaders' Operational Leadership workshop.

Dates: Wednesday 23th to Friday 25th August 2017.
Location: Braemar Lodge (Hanmer Springs).
Cost: $2,200 plus GST for one person for NZIML members. Add an additional person for just $1,000 plus GST.

There are limited places still available.

This programme exposes you, as a senior manager, to developing key competencies of operational leadership, transforming strategic priorities into operational plans through clear communication, assigning accountability, resource allocation, internal process definition and ongoing measurement.

There is great commercial reward through developing innovation; responding continuously to operational challenges by taking a systems approach to change and process improvement amidst a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment and addressing customer/user needs – the introduction of risk mitigation.

Find out more about the People Leaders' Operational Leadership workshop including how to secure your place. You can also contact Elizabeth at NZIML (elizabeth[at]

Cost of Culture

Do you have a line in your budget for culture?

We do, and when I say that people are often surprised. We plan for the unplanned stuff: a coffee, International Chocolate Day, cake for no reason (who are we kidding there is always a reason for cake), professional development or a small thank-you.

The Hudson Leadership Survey shares that for the second year in a row across Australia and New Zealand you - the decision makers - are setting your priorities when it comes to building human capital.

Read the NZIML blog post on the cost of culture for more information.
