The Importance of Vital Conversations During Organisational Change

An inevitable consequence of organisational change is the need to evaluate roles and positions ultimately leading to some staff experiencing significant change to their role, re-deployment to another division, or redundancy.

The Importance of Conflict In High Performing Teams

I recently attended an AIM Breakfast where the presentation from the guest speaker was about addressing dysfunction in teams. Specifically, he discussed Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions Model which identifies five (surprise) distinct issues that form an interrelated model of dysfunction. These are: Absence of TRUST Fear of CONFLICT Lack of COMMITMENT Avoidance of ACCOUNTABILITY Inattention [...]

Are You Waiting To Be Confident?

Confidence is not a static state, it comes and goes, shrinks and grows as you develop and expand out of your comfort zone and take on new roles and responsibilities.

Legitimacy in Policing: Turning the Lens Inwards

The link between procedural justice, police legitimacy and community trust encourages police to consider how they interact with the public so that people feel they have been dealt with fairly and with respect. Even when the outcome of their encounter with police is negative (e.g. speeding ticket), if the interaction with the officer was fair [...]

Stop Overcomplicating

I am guessing I am not alone in having a wonderful ability to overcomplicating most things. Whether it be relationships, money, career choices, life choice or just deciding what to wear in the morning you will ignore the path of least resistance and head straight for Stressville. I think we do this because. We love [...]

Are You Willing To Have A Difficult Conversation?

Undoubtedly one of the most difficult tasks of being a leader is having a difficult conversation with someone who is underperforming or behaving inappropriately. Even bosses who I believed handled this aspect of their role with aplomb say that it was a skill that they had to consciously decide to learn and consciously decide to [...]

Building Your Leadership Presence

Some people naturally exude a powerful presence when they enter a room. When they speak, whether that is in a meeting, in the boardroom or at a social function, people listen. I remember meeting a Commissioner of one of Australia’s police forces many years ago. He came to visit our work unit and address us [...]
