More on our presenter Jason Roberts…
When, in 2005, faced with the challenge of building an organisational culture that fosters reativity, initiative, leadership and productivity, Lake Macquarie City Council General Manager, Brian Bell decided to focus on developing ‘Emotional Intelligence’ (EI) within LMCC leaders. In partnership with Jason Roberts Business Consulting (JRBC), Mr Bell has since then led a program of EI-focused leadership development, along with incorporating a behavioural focus within the Council’s recruitment and selection process.
To objectively assess LMCC’s EI growth and its relationship to variables such as ‘commitment’ and ‘job satisfaction’, Swinburne University was engaged in 2007 to annually research and report on the program. Year-on-year evidence has consistently trended positively. Jason Roberts says that the success of the five year program is attributable to two essential components – the consistent approach to leadership development using an EI-focused approach, and the constant support of the General Manager and Executive team. The results of the research are currently being prepared for submission to the International Journal of Business Science and Applied Management.
