Avoiding the Power Trap

In the first Professional Development Event for Victoria for 2016, NAWO helps you build engagement and influence with your employees and children!

Rachael Davis – Vice President, Nitrogen Value Chain at Incitec Pivot Ltd,  will talk about negotiation and influence in her role on a daily basis and how she has developed and used these skills in her career to date.

Jenny Bailey is trained as an engineer and was a senior executive with the likes of Rio Tinto, KPMG and Yarra Valley Water.

When Jenny started her family at the age of 40, she transferred her passion for organisational development to that of the family unit and established her own business teaching parenting skills to parents. Jenny recognised that the current system of parenting with a system of punishment and rewards is ineffective and damages the relationship between parent and child, leading to a reduced ability to influence and motivate our children. She teaches a ‘no-lose’ method of parenting as an alternative.

Recognising that the same principles apply in the workplace, she works with organisations, with a particular emphasis on helping women in the engineering sector, to improve performance and employee engagement. Jenny is the author of ‘How to avoid being fired as a parent’.

Jenny’s workshop will include:

  • understanding the impact of using power as a leader and parent
  • a framework for building relationships and influence
  • dealing with the strong emotions of your employees and children

This workshop will be of tremendous value to working parents, to those who have working parents in their team, and those who may be parents of the future! Women and men will draw great benefits from attending this session, so NAWO women – invite your male colleagues! You may even like to invite partners at the special NAWO member rate of $55.00
