PERTH EVENT: Leadership Effectiveness with Denise Goldsworthy (8 September)

PERTH EVENT: Leadership Effectiveness with Denise Goldsworthy (8 September)

SIOPA proudly presents Leadership Effectiveness with Denise Goldsworthy

The Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology Australia is proud to present our upcoming CPD event celebrating the return of our formal professional development events. This event will be hosted by Denise Goldsworthy AO.

What’s it all about?

Based on work from Irvin David Yalom, an emeritus professor of psychiatry at Stanford University via Industrial Leadership Training, Denise will discuss her lessons learnt in leadership effectiveness. Yalom developed a model outlining the four levers to improving human performance. While originally designed for clinical use in group psychotherapy, it was introduced to Denise as a leadership tool early in her executive career. Since then, she has applied the model in her own way. Denise will explore the model by illustrating its practical application in leadership settings to improve human performance in the workplace.

Denise was recently made an Officer of the Order of Australia in the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours. This event will also coincide with the conclusion of the inaugural SIOPA Mentoring Program 2020.
