Leadership + Humanity Symposium

Thursday 5 September – Friday 6 September

Increasingly fast-paced work environments, technology-driven lives, and shifts in geopolitics have left us feeling overwhelmed.  As our work becomes more automated and artificial, with algorithms taking charge of decisions, how can we maintain a sense of humanity in leadership?

The 2024 Leadership + Humanity Symposium will offer an antidote to our collective sense of overwhelm. In response to recent updates to work health and safety laws which mandate how employers handle psycho-social hazards and grant employees the right to disconnect, the Symposium will explore the implications for workplaces.

Practical solutions will be offered to establish environments that prioritise both employee well-being and organisational goals in a world that is increasingly interconnected and always-on. Consider the value of human connection, identify challenges and find opportunities to lead with purpose in our daily lives, so we can create workplaces where humans thrive.

In the evolving landscape of work, greater reliance on technology will demand a heightened emphasis on skills like developing trust and belonging, curiosity and creativity. These qualities will be pivotal in creating strong, healthy relationships and fostering safe, innovative work environments.

Join us in September to explore the benefits of leading with humanity and uncover leadership approaches that can humanise our workplaces.
