AIM Members will have recently received their first copy of the brand new AIM Magazine, AIM for Management and Leadership Excellence and noticed a much greater focus on the issues and ideas that matter to them.

With advice on managing micromanagers, insightful research on Gen Y workers and tips on networking, the new magazine offers a rich array of knowledge for Members to sink their teeth into.

Fascinating interviews with Sydney Roosters Chief Operating Officer Brian Canavan FAIM and management guru Jim Collins provide unique perspectives on overcoming organisational challenges in uncertain environments.

The magazine team also reports from Julia Gillard’s speech at the AIM Outstanding Women Series in Melbourne, where Australia’s 27th Prime Minister spoke candidly about how she handled the pressures of politics.

Editor of the new-look AIM magazine, Jacqueline Blondell said telling Member stories will be an important part of the editorial mix, along with showcasing innovations from the business and management frontline.

"The AIM membership is a broad church with a wealth of experience to share,” Ms Blondell said.

“I am really looking forward to connecting Members through the medium of the magazine and I encourage them to get in touch with me if they have something they want to share."

The April edition of AIM will feature a readership survey, which will ask questions about Members’ attitudes and roles. Responses will be used to help fine-tune the magazine content, so Members are requested to take a moment to fill it in.

AIM’s Executive General Manager Membership, Barry Hankinson FAIM has said that Bauer had demonstrated its understanding of AIM’s reinvigorated membership offering and delivered the first instalment of what promises to be a valuable resource for Members.

“AIM for Management and Leadership Excellence has the imperative to provide a content strategy that identifies the most appropriate channels to meet the needs of current and prospective members,” Mr Hankinson said.

“With a renewed focus on the issues that really matter to our Members the magazine provides a great medium for managers to discuss contemporary leadership ideas in an engaging way.

“I am very pleased with the first edition and I encourage Members to provide their feedback on the new magazine and contribute their ideas for content.”

The second edition of AIM for management and leadership Excellence is due for delivery on April 10 2015.
