In the 2019 Geelong HR Index over 60% of the 120+ employers that were surveyed said their leadership was either satisfactory or needed development. This leaves plenty of room for improvement of leadership capabilities within our region.

Harvest has responded to this need adding Leadership Training, Coaching, Mentoring and Facilitation to its offering. 

Organisations either take a more formal approach to addressing developing leadership competencies through an “Emerging Leaders” or “Developing Leaders” program or seek bespoke workshops and support on a more intermittent basis to develop their company’s leaders.

The ‘Workforce Management in Crisis’ webinar series was an added bonus to access. In a time of rapid change due to COVID-19 and information coming in thick and fast from multiple areas, it was valuable to have these sessions available. Thank you Harvest HR for this series and the great work you have done in establishing a comprehensive Professional Development program for HR professionals in the Geelong region!

Building and cultivating resilience is such an important aspect of both our personal and professional lives. Melanie’s experience and knowledge was very evident in this thought provoking workshop.

The discussion regarding the particular topic did not commence until 10am (after networking and introductions). Obviously we are all short for time these days so perhaps would prefer to see the discussion commence closer to the time of 9.30am. Thank you for initiating these conversations in Geelong.
