Plan your professional development now for 2019

Plan your professional development now for 2019
  • Published Date: 08 November 2018

Participants in ANZSOG’s Executive Education workshops learn from the best and get the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge to solve real-world problems. Our 2019 line up is still being finalised, but the confirmed courses cover a range of topics from regulation, public policy, evaluation, communication skills and leadership.

Intensive workshops of one to five days in length allow participants to fill gaps in their knowledge and get exposure to the latest ideas, without needing to take a longer course. They focus on the challenges that are directly relevant to public servants today.

Workshops are designed for people at different career stages. Participants learn from their peers and build a valuable network of colleagues across agencies and jurisdictions.

At a time when the public sector is under increased scrutiny and is being required to do more with less, investing in the capability of the public sector is vital. The 2019 program has been designed to support public managers working in this increasingly volatile and uncertain environment.

Owned by and working for the governments of Australia and New Zealand, ANZSOG offers the best in intensive workshops that combine practical knowledge with academic rigour.

Some dates are yet to be determined, but below is information about workshops and a calendar for 2019.

2019 workshops

Regulators can have access to the insights of renowned Harvard Professor Malcolm Sparrow, a world leader in regulatory and enforcement strategy who is highly popular with Australian audiences.  Professor Sparrow returns to Australia in 2019 to deliver The modern regulator and Managing regulation, enforcement and compliance. Grant Pink brings 25 years of regulatory experience in Australia to Connecting regulatory management, leadership and practice.

Understanding the principles behind good policy is crucial for public servants who see themselves in leadership or management roles, and Public policy and programs will give participants a stronger analytical insight into policy, and practical skills to take back to their workplace.

Former Victorian Police Commissioner Christine Nixon and Melbourne Business School Professor Amanda Sinclair present Women leading the public sector, a course aimed at broadening definitions of leadership and helping women become effective role models for humane and people-centred leadership.

Dana Born, former US Air Force Brigadier General and Harvard Professor, teaches Authentic leadership and shows participants how they can inject passion into their leadership and find their ‘true north’ as leaders.

Professor Patricia Rogers and Dr George Argyrous are from ANZSOG’s Evidence and Evaluation Hub and take participants through the basics of how to embed the principles of good evaluation into an organisation’s work in Evaluation for the public sector.

Adam Shapiro is a Senior Corruption Prevention Officer at the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption and shares his insights into why corrupt conduct continues to occur – despite our best efforts – and what we can do to prevent it in the Strategic responses to corruption workshop.

The BehaviourWorks Australia team, based at Monash University, are the biggest applied behaviour change research team in Australia and have worked extensively with governments to apply the science of behaviour change to public policy. Their Behaviour change in public policy masterclass uses real-world examples to explore how to turn public awareness of an issue into lasting changes in behaviour.

Nick Fleming has been a practitioner and consultant to government for 25 years and understands the challenges of turning good policy into reality. Effective Policy Implementation will see him share his insights into why implementations succeed or fail. More information about the exciting new workshop will be available in the coming weeks.

Learning to communicate more effectively can help any public manager. Communications expert Dr Zina O’Leary and executive voice coach Debra Lawrance’s Communicate for impact and influence will show participants how to develop their own unique communication style and get their ideas listened to.

More 2019 workshops are in the process of being finalised, so keep an eye on our website for new workshops, updated information and dates.

ANZSOG also develops customised workshops for individual agencies.
