Background information:

The Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Chapter was formed in early 2014 and is fast gaining momentum. Currently there are around 125 email subscribers located across 4 Australian States and New Zealand. We are in the process of gaining a better idea of possible directions for the chapter before looking into opportunities to grow the chapter and enhance its activities. The ANZ Chapter is consequently still somewhat nebulous as individuals and groups discuss and share ideas on what humanistic management can contribute to bring about constructive and substantive change to management practice in the Australian and New Zealand contexts.

Chapter activities: 

The ANZ Chapter is engaged in a series of activities and initiatives.

- The 'Melbourne Mob' meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 4pm at Moat Cafe, under the State Library in Melbourne - all are welcome to drop in and discuss issues surrounding the tenets of a humanistic management paradigm as well as plan opportunities to collaborate on research activities or organize or participating in events.

- A group from 4 Australian universities plus one from New Zealand have undertaken a Workshop at the 2014 ANZAM Conference held at UTS, Sydney in December.  The workshop introduced the humanistic management concept to ANZAM and discussed the way forward for management and leadership awareness in Australia.

- Regular monthly meetings are being held in Adelaide with guest speakers discussing a variety of topics with humanistic implications to a diverse and engaged audience.

This month the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to discuss the idea of heedfulness, in juxtaposition to last months conversation about mindfulness.  This workshop will take place on the 12th of November 2015.

There is currently a strong ground-swell of interest in and research about mindfulness – so what, order then, is the value of looking at the synonymous ‘heedful’ and ‘heedfulness’? The principal driver behind the adoption of the word and concept of heedfulness is a shift from looking inward and situating oneself very much and mindfully in the immediate context of being ‘where you are’ and ‘in the world’ to investing that same level of paying attention on purpose to others, what they are doing, and how you and they are inter-related.

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network and the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia invite you to the next Workshop in this event series on September 10th 2015.

Managing a business or workplace is challenging enough in the normal course of events but when things go badly how can we manage shared grief in the workplace.  Some professionals have to deal with trauma and confronting issues on a daily basis (e.g. social services) while others are suddenly faced with challenges to work and worker well-being which shatters their world (e.g. mass layoffs, company failure).

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network and the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia invite you to the next Workshop in this event series on August 13th 2015.

Business in the 21st century is not all straight lines! We can create amazing possibilities for change at work if we consider the ideas, imaginings and a unique perspectives we all have.  The challenge for us is to discover how we can cultivate and access our creativity and inspiration in that space.  In a world of immediacy, transience and constant progress it makes sense for work to adopt a flexible and dynamic attitude.  Art can help us to be open to novel, usual and alternative look at the world.  To help you explore this challenge and enlighten your view to an inspired working reality, our inimitable Lisa Philip-Harbutt will share her insights on creativity and dynamic organisations with us in August to discuss, What's Art Got To Do With It.
