The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network held our May 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia on the 7th of May 2015.

If you see a committee forming do you back away quietly or rush to the fore to be counted in for a say? We have committees for just about everything, most designed to bring in diverse opinions and generate informed discussion to matters that have collective impact. Why then are committees so often dysfunctional, or impotent or at worse acrimonious?

At the next HMN-LL event we explore committees and ask if playing hard and playing fair are mutually exclusive or if it is personal politics and hidden agendas that control who wins? We look at this issue through the lens of sports associations and ask why is it that often committees with recreational agendas have deep political problems and poor collective engagement. From our discussions and experiences with these groups we ask, what can we learn from this which can help our committees in business and community organisations?

In May we have the pleasure of welcoming the insights from the wonderful Dr Meera Verma, who has battled diverse committees, boards and executive panels for many years. An astute business woman, Meera was the winner of Zaffyre International Private & Corporate Sector Award in the 2006 Telstra Business Womens' Awards. In 2007 she won the Bioinnovation SA leadership award.
