In early May, we hosted another successful Richard Lloyd Business Seminar, “Unleash Your Leadership Influencing Skills to Enhance a High-Performance Culture”, with almost 150 Accounting professionals from across Sydney joining us for the breakfast event. In our first seminar of 2019, we welcomed back Dr Denis Cauvier (for the fourth time), who was on hand to explore the intrinsic makeup of what makes a great leader, how to create a high-performance team, and the challenges facing leaders on a day-to-day basis. If you didn’t make it on the day, here are some key takeaways!
Dr. Cauvier highlighted a Right Management study of 28,810 employees (across 10 industries in 15 countries), which produced some interesting results regarding change and transformation projects. Within top-performing companies, 60% of employees indicated that change is implemented well. Compare this to below-average performing organisations, where only 15% of respondents suggested that change was well implemented. On top of this, it was uncovered that organisations that don’t change were four times more likely to lose top talent.
Debriefing after the seminar, some of Dr. Cauvier’s words really struck a chord with our team, as well as attendees on the morning. Here are some of their favourites:
Thank you to Dr. Cauvier, and everyone who attended, for helping to produce another successful Richard Lloyd seminar! We have a number of others already in planning, so be sure to keep an eye out for your chance to be a part of future Richard Lloyd seminars.
