LEADERSHIP AND
CULTURE BUILDING

Leadership Development is central to our core business. Our expertise covers all aspects of leadership and culture building.

EXECUTIVE TEAM WORKSHOPS
An effective executive leadership team requires talented individuals with a real sense of cohesiveness. We provide strategies and best practice tips on how to improve relationships within and across your executive or management team. We also utilise Hogan Personality assessments and Hogan 360 reviews to help team members gain a greater self-awareness of their leadership style and those of their colleagues to help deliver high performance.

INDUCTION AND TRAINING
Councillors, CEOs/GMs and senior staff will benefit from undertaking our formal induction and/or training services to equip them with the information, knowledge, and skills required to perform their roles confidently and effectively.

COACHING AND MENTORING
Increasingly, business leaders are using the related concepts of coaching and mentoring to markedly improve performance and business outcomes. These powerful personal development programs are designed to assist individuals and teams to grow, both professionally and personally, and to maximise their true potential.

Let Blackadder Associates tailor a cost-effective program to significantly enhance performance and prepare your professionals and managers for leadership roles.

PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
Managing performance is at the heart of leadership, ensuring community needs are met by setting clear goals and then delivering through performance-measured monitoring. Performance management operates at three levels: Council-wide, Departmentally, and Individually.

With our proven capacity and capability to deliver, let us assist you to develop an integrated performance management system to guide your leaders and meet your organisation’s requirements.

MEDIA RELATIONS
Local government is increasingly under the spotlight and often receives media attention when it’s least wanted. Let Blackadder Associates assist to demystify the media and develop skills to successfully manage media. Mayors, Councillors, CEOs/General Managers, and Directors can learn how best to get their message to media outlets, and how to cope under the pressure of media attention.
