Power to your people: Empowering staff to more effectively achieve your purpose
Since 2015, National Disability Services (NDS) has supported dozens of disability service providers across Australia to explore, adapt and test innovative models of people management in their own organisations.
In this session, NDS Workforce Adviser Yumi Stamet will share case studies, lessons and results gathered from top performing human services organisations around the world. You’ll leave with practical examples of how your organisation can empower your staff, as well as lessons on how Australian NFPs are successfully moving from a hierarchical management model to one of supportive leadership and distributed authority – ultimately leading to better services, better jobs and better results.
