Event description

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced so many of us to reconsider what is most important in life. While we absolutely love bringing large groups of people together in person, we have reinvented what Newday means in 2020. We are really excited to share this with you!

Teaming up with some of the the most in-demand leaders and speakers in Australia and globally, we have adapted and curated a compelling and deliberately practical series of supported online leadership sessions to help you and your team lead for the greater good.

“How can we learn to be fully awake in the face of something unprecedented?” – Otto Scharmer

As we emerge from a time of isolation and disruption into a world that is not quite familiar, our ‘Reimagining Leadership’ series, starting on 1 July, will give you the impetus you need to challenge the status quo and create positive impact; to become a person who embodies ‘inspired leadership for the greater good’.

The 2020 ‘Reimagining Leadership’ eSeries: what’s included

We are determined to move beyond a world limited to webinars or pre-recorded content and into a realm that brings people together around inspiring and insightful thinkers and do-ers. We want to support and embed deep learning, including work you can do on paper and work you can do with the support of peers. (from your organisation or other members of the Newday community).

It takes six weeks for most of us to develop new habits, so we have designed a program of six weekly leadership sessions that will that will each run for about 60 minutes, with some optional time to prep or integrate learning.

Our program is designed to work even if you remain in physical isolation at home. But as restrictions are relaxed, we have developed what we are calling leadership ‘pods’. You will have the option to be matched with nine other participants from your workplace or the Newday community. This unique peer model provides for support and learning that can adapt as the rules for social distancing change here in Australia and across the world. There is every possibility that you will be able to meet with your pod in a physical space, or just join in a video or regular phone call as you prepare for or reflect on each session.

In this series you can look forward to:

  • sessions facilitated by Newday summit curators and hosts, Katrina Webb and Matthew Wright-Simon
  • special guest speakers and interviewees
  • time for Q&A (with some sessions responding to questions prompted by participants)
  • activities to keep everyone focussed and energy levels high
  • the opportunity to be part of your own group (or ‘pod’) of approximately 10 participants so you can develop actions and support one another
  • exclusive content from our Newday community, including keynote sessions from the last three years
  • weekly ‘homework’ and reflection time to support meaningful change
  • a Newday journal and workbook
  • access to session recordings for 30 days

6 weeks. Develop new habits. Adapt to uncertainty. Lead for the greater good.

This series has so much to offer. It doesn’t matter if you work in government, the corporate world, education, or the not-for-profit sector. This is a leadership program that welcomes anyone at any age or any stage of their journey.

….. A special welcome

The series starts with a special ceremonial welcome from Mickey Kumatpi O’Brien, Kaurna elder and Newday Leadership advisor.

Dr Gill Hicks will open our program and invite us to use this precious gift of time as an opportunity to look deeper into ourselves and to ask just one question: how do I want to emerge from this Newday?

12.00 – 13.15
(GMT+9:30)

Reconnecting leadership with purpose 

Rebecca Tapp in discussion with Katrina Webb.

Before Corona (BC), purpose was considered to be the North Star. The brightest light in the sky, a beacon guiding us to the future. But what happens when that future has been turned upside down? When the sky is all of a sudden covered by clouds? According to Rebecca, conscious leaders need to stop, and instead of thinking about purpose as something we steer towards in the future, use it as an anchor in the present moment. Reawakening and reconnecting purpose in leadership is no longer about purpose, it’s about being purposeful

Rebecca Tapp assists industry leaders, CEO’S, entrepreneurs and media personalities to activate purpose-driven influence. She has spent 15 years working in partnership with globally acclaimed speakers, activists, authors and influencers. She is the host of the Decoding Purpose Podcast, the CEO & Founder of Supernova Tribe, and a Director of Future Crunch.

We will also hear from special guests Rob and Cheryl Wood in conversation with Mike Worsman.

Rob and Cheryl are two human beings who have abandoned the ‘normal’ to pursue the truly extraordinary. At 72 years old apiece, this committed couple have sacrificed more than most in order to lead for the greater good. From not owning their first home until they were 63, to risking their life in war zones and never being paid a regular wage, what these two beacons of peace and hope will teach you is simple: there is another way… several, in fact.
