Time: 1:30pm – 3:00pm
Time will be spent reflecting on leadership and management skills that participants were developing before the COVID pandemic through ATEM’s Middle Managers Program, other development activities and/or practical experience. Building on this foundation, we will pause to seek an understanding of how these skills have morphed and regenerated as our working environment has evolved. The workshop will encourage participants to reflect on how these regenerated skills and new skills are being employed for leadership to thrive in today’s ways of working. This will include an opportunity to celebrate these new ways of leading.

Anyone who is an emerging leader currently or aspires to be, and alumni of ATEM’s Middle Managers Program are especially welcome and encouraged to attend, to renew and build on relationships formed during the program.
Learning outcomes will be understanding how the skills of a middle manager have developed over time as more experience is gained and as changes are adapted to – particularly changes we have seen since 2020.
The workshop also aims to (re)build connections across leaders and managers in the sector, develop new relationships, reinforce a network of sector leaders across Australia and New Zealand, and to facilitate shared approaches to ‘what’s next?’ for middle managers in the sector.
