More on our presenter Jason Roberts

Workplace Culture Outcomes
Hunter Business Chamber Magazine – ‘The Leader’ August, 2010

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.

HR Club Newcastle will be holding it’s first event on Wednesday 17th February 2010 from 5:30pm. The topic will be “HR and Social Media – So what?”

Speaker: We are very excited to announce that Jess Booth, founder of our sister club, HR Club Sydney, is our speaker for our first event.

Jess recently won the AHRI “HR Rising Star” award and was also recently named in the Top 25 most influential HR professionals on Twitter. Oh and her day job is Senior HR Advisor at CSIRO.

The format for HR Club Newcastle events will be far more conversational and informal than your typical HR events. They will be free, at a pub, go for two hours with only a 30 minute presentation. Often we will have a panel that we can throw questions at.

The focus is on Hot HR topics, networking and sharing.

So put it in your diary now – details of venue to come soon! See you there!
