Welcome to the April issue of Leading Edge

As the leaves start to turn, we reflect on the first few months of the year, and some of the opportunities we’ve had to engage with you, our Members. 

Our kick-off roadshow for the year, Leadership Outlook attracted almost 700 attendees over 12 locations nationally. These interactive workshops were a real highlight, both to hear from our culture expert Jerome Parisse, but also to hear from our Members and their networks, on real examples happening in your workplace.

Such rich experience shared amongst like-minded professionals, determined to raise the bar on management and leadership.

As February turned to March, across the globe people celebrated International Women’s Day on or around March 8.

As the go-to body for professional managers and leaders in Australia, AIM believes that sound management and leadership practice is absolutely crucial. AIM believes that a diverse workforce is essential for business success. Diversity Matters.

AIM hosted almost 2,000 attendees and engaged 25 speakers across five events in four days.

AIM’s vision is better managers, better leaders, for a better society and we realise this in a variety of ways. One of these is to support grass roots charities so we’re delighted to announce that across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne we raised a total of $44,200 for some worthy causes with your help. For this we thank you.

Each month, AIM has a discussion topic and for April it’s Ethical Leadership. Look out for our monthly policy and advocacy e-newsletter Insight Edge, to provide you with insights and tips on this topic. We are also launching AIM's magazine online leadershipmatters.com.au, with a broad range of content to lead your team or organisation through a productive 2016.

Also, to develop your ‘ethical leadership’ muscle in April and beyond, keep an eye out for The Essence of Leadership Series (Tel Talks) on a variety of topics relating to management and leadership in a range of locations.

As J.R.R. Tolkien said in The Fellowship of the Ring “He found himself wondering at times, especially in the autumn, about the wild lands, and strange visions of mountains that he had never seen came into his dreams.”

We hope that autumn is full of opportunity for things you never dreamed possible. If there are mountains we can help you climb, either in leading an ethical team or organisation, or forging a new path, contact AIM today.
