What is Transforming Leadership?

In a time when organisations relentlessly demand leadership – who answers the call? How are our future business and industry leaders developing themselves to truly face the challenges and be seen as the best?

The transformation into a respected, values driven, talented leader of the organisation and industry is not an easy process, yet we’re demanding that HR impact as business performers delivering larger, faster and more significant outcomes. Leadership demands open minded, versatile, collaborative, innovative and dynamic individuals that can capture imaginations, belief and hearts and align an organisations people to achieve the collective goal. The 2017 NZ HR Conference and Expo will be an event to understand the process of becoming or developing tomorrow’s leaders, navigating the required competencies and adapting to the pressures of being a courageous, visionary leader.
