2020 Sydney Management Masterclass | To be confirmed | Tuesday, 16. June 2020

Many of us build deep skills in campaigning or communications - and our success finds us managing teams of communicators, or campaigners. Management is a skill set and managing in civil society organisations, and especially in advocacy settings, presents specific challenges and opportunities.
We're proud to offer three unique training modules for managers to turbo-boost their skills leading teams to win.
Managing for Excellence
We all work with limited resources for critical causes - so we need the best work from our teams and the individuals in them. In this short, targeted workshop you'll learn key tips and tricks for:

Goal setting
Successful delegation and accountability
1:1 management relationships
Team Communication 
Performance management
Success in rapid response environments

Recruiting Superstars
Recruitment one of our biggest risk areas to manage. When we're unsuccessful, the costs - in money, time and opportunity - are enormous. And recruiting agencies, and even our own HR staff, sometimes lack the expertise to successfully recruit campaigners, organisers, advocates, media officers, digital specialists and more. We'll cover:

Designing the right role;
Writing job ads that ensure a diversity of quality applicants;
Reaching the right applicants - advertising, headhunting, networking;
Setting tasks;
Assessing applications;
Interview process and techniques; and
Salary benchmarking.

Creating a Culture of Impact
To succeed your organisation needs a strong strategy and great management (including great structure and resourcing), but you will only get there if your organisation's culture provides for a focus on excellence, innovation and outcomes. This critical module covers:

Defining your organisation's culture;
Understanding the levers at your disposal for shifting culture;
Case studies of successful shifts in culture within teams and organisation;
Culture settings and practices that encourage innovation; and
Strategies for getting new projects and processes off the ground.
