09:00 – 09:20: Bringing Positive Change to the Workplace 

Sivantos Group is a leading manufacturer of hearing aids whose roots go back almost 140 years. With such a history, how can working practices be made flexible and agile, and for people to be better able to collaborate and work seamlessly as teams? In this session the role of collaboration in the workplace to ensure more innovation and adaptability will explore the issue of how leaders create places where employees want to work and feel supported and understanding that employees today want more than just a job.

Gary Lee, Global Head of Leadership & Organisational Development, Sivantos Group

 

09:20 – 09:45: The Future of Work and Wellbeing – Changi Airport Case Study

By 2020, we no longer need to argue the case for Wellbeing. More leaders understand the importance of the organisation’s role in individual wellbeing and it’s impact on performance. The business outcomes of increasing employee’s wellbeing are nothing short of substantial, and studies are getting closer to showing the causation, not just the correlation, between individual wellbeing and business performance. But what does the big data miss? And what is our role, as leaders and managers, in truly putting wellbeing at the centre?

In this session, participants will look at the macro global wellbeing insights and how these apply to the workplace. Through a case study of Changi Airport this session will drill into insights into the role of the manager and what you can do differently to give yourself a well-being boost and create new habits.

Claire DeCarteret, Head of APAC, Gallup

 

09:45 – 10:05: Becoming a Purpose-Led Organisation

  • What are some of the levers HR and senior leaders can use to influence culture?
  • Programmes that go beyond health scans and serve total employee wellbeing
  • How do leaders create places where employees want to work and feel supported?
  • Understanding that employees today want more than a job and want to feel their employer cares for them?

Speaker to be announced shortly

 

10:05 – 10:30: Emotional Intelligence – Selecting and Training Transformational Leaders

Effective leadership is crucial to the wellbeing of organisations. Models of effective leadership discuss the leader’s role in motivating staff, maintaining morale and presenting a consistent image to the public. Exceptional leaders are inspiring, captivating and charismatic. The goal of talent acquisition is to be able to identify exceptional leaders. The role of leadership development is to develop a leader’s skill to be able to lead effectively, thus enhancing both the wellbeing of all staff and the organisation as a whole.

The following talk will discuss the role of emotional intelligence (EI) in equipping leaders with the skills to be influential while building and maintaining individual and organisational wellbeing. Identifying candidates who have emotional intelligence is not easy and self-report tools have inherent limitations for identifying EI that are addressed by recent developments in the field. Moreover, recent research in the field has demonstrated how EI can be developed in leaders resulting in greater wellbeing for both those the leaders and those who they lead. The following talk will present the case for EI as a foundation skill for leaders, and therefore, an essential consideration for organisations concerned with wellbeing, and discuss practical tools that assist in the selection and development of leaders of the future.

Dr Paul Englehard, Registered Psychologist and Managing Director, OPRA Group
