This month: September publicity highlights and details of our collaboration with Ken Zulumovski from GUIR. 

I’m Tony Holmwood, a Cultural Change and Ei coach. This month we provide insights to our collaboration with Dr Ken Zulumovski Hon DHSc who is the curator of Gamarada Universal Indigneous Resources Pty Ltd (GUIR). Also find a publicity update following the launch of my book “Best Behaviour” including a book review by Rama Gaind in the Public Service News.

Click on the "Book a Strategy Session" below if you would like to know more about our cultural change and leadership cultural intelligence programs.

Equitable and symmetrical, the Balanced Behavioural Development Model, outlined in this book, provides a mathematical basis to behavioural learning.“This framework can be used by HR and managers to positively change people’s lives with targeted employee development, to rapidly transform a business’s culture and supercharge growth.”

Holmwood believes that emotional intelligence in leaders is a strong indicator of success because they enable a big-picture, future-directed cultural competence.

If you are a subsciber to the HR Director Magazine, you may have read in the March Issue - #173, the excellent article "Lamplighters Voting for Electric" by Ben Bishop, Operations Director for XCD. Here Ben points out "Take it as read, in the world of the future, the HR of the past is no longer a fit. Let’s agree too, that, after decades being perceived as a backoffice function, HR faces strategic demands from leaders who finally grasp the inarguable link between workforce efficiency, engagement and business growth. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, 4IR, Industry 4.0, call it what you will, it’s not an if, it’s a now." Look out for my view on how HR will be positioned in the future in the November Issue - #181.

Thank you.
