We are working closely with the Curtin Business School Executive Education team to develop a range of opportunities for WA women, commencing with a Regional Leadership Masterclass, to be delivered at the Muresk Institute in Northam on:

Wednesday 10th Oct to Friday 12th Oct 2018.

The Masterclass will be available for a maximum of 20 participants, and has been designed exclusively for the RRR Network.  BOOK NOW to reserve your place.

The program will be delivered  by Julia Richardson, Associate Professor of Human Resources Management and Deputy Head of the School of Management, Curtin University.

Professor Richardson is a global leader in both teaching and research with research interests in career sustainability and careers of the future, with recent work examining leadership careers, flexible work practices, achieving work-life balance and ‘the future of work’.  Professor Richardson is also a farmer’s daughter, having grown up in a remote, rural community in the UK and has enjoyed a global career, in the public and private sectors in the UK, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, Canada and Australia and has won multiple awards for her scholarship and teaching.

This Masterclass will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the role of power and influence, trust and justice as essential components of contemporary leadership. The program design draws on an extensive body of international research and practice in the public and private sector.

You will first identify your own sources of power and develop strategies for broadening your sphere of influence to build sustainable leadership careers. You will examine the impact of trust and justice on follower behaviour and the implications for ethical leadership.

There is no prerequisites to attend this Masterclass, just willingness to join into participant-centred learning, and to undertake some pre-reading to participate in interactive problem-based case study analysis that facilitates reflective learning and practice.
