We’re excited to announce the launch of ‘Leadership Live,’ a program designed to accelerate development and unlock the leader within.

As Donald McGannon famously said, ‘Leadership is an action, not a position,’ and this sentiment underpins our vision to ignite a leadership culture of innovation and transformation. Let’s share ideas and explore what’s possible!

With the first session on 12 July, ‘Leadership Live’ will be a fortnightly, 45-minute session hosted by Monash Health leaders, for Monash Health leaders. These interactive sessions will provide a platform for sharing ideas, learning, and experimenting with innovative leadership approaches.

The sessions will be hosted by Michelle Morrison, Director of Organisation Capability. Michelle will invite attendees to engage in thought-provoking discussions and encourage a collaborative learning environment. The topics are intended to encourage you to embrace new perspectives and leave each session with new ideas and energy to increase your leadership impact.

Leadership Live will replace and expand on the monthly Manager Briefing, in response to requests for more of a focus on leadership development. The content will be relevant for, and target managers, as well as other leaders. The leadership content will be followed by a segment of ‘fast news’ to allow for important manager content to be shared.

Series One – Why Leadership Matters

‘Leadership Live’ will run a series of topics, each covering approximately four sessions and be held on Microsoft Teams, allowing easy engagement from all attendees.

The inaugural series of ‘Leadership Live’ will kick off by covering the importance of leadership. Those joining us will have the opportunity to hear from Martin Keogh, our Interim Chief Executive, who will share his experiences and insights on personal leadership, as well as what it means to lead strategically.

Chris McLoughlin, Executive Director, People and Culture, will discuss the importance of leading systems change at Monash Health, and Chief Financial Officer, Rachelle Anstey, will talk about her strategy to “grow her own” talent from within. Other guests in series one will include Andrea Rindt, Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Women’s and Children, Megan Galbally, Program Director, Mental Health, and David Bloxham, General Manager, Communication and Engagement.

Supporting experienced leaders, new leaders and aspiring leaders

It is important to note that ‘Leadership Live’ is open to anyone within Monash Health who seeks personal and professional growth. We recognise that leadership can come from anyone, regardless of role or title. We also know that leaders experience overwhelm and isolation at times. So, please encourage attendance from anyone you think would benefit.

Look out for the event invite coming shortly, and if you have any questions or suggestions for content, please get in touch with Michelle Morrison.
