To lead change, be visible

STRATEGY: “There is a direct correlation between the success of the initiative and how well the people side of change is managed”.In the past 20 years, Prosci has been conducting an international benchmarking study to uncover the lessons learned by change practitioners and consultants. The study focuses on what’s working and what’s not.
Nanjing Night Net

The research across thousands of initiatives shows a direct correlation between the success of the initiative and how well the people side of change is managed. Projects with a structured approach to change management had a six-fold increase in the likelihood of meeting objectives, finishing on time and on budget.

As part of this study, change leaders share the greatest contributors to the success of their change initiatives within their organisation. In number one position for the 10th time is active and visible sponsorship. Not only is this top contributing factor, it’s ahead of second place by a ratio of three to one.The top contributing factors to successful change management are:

In equal fifth place are frequent and open communication, integration and engagement with project management and engagement with middle managers.

So why is being visible so important? For a change project to be successful, it requires people to embrace the change. Employees want to hear about the context of the change directly from the executive sponsor and the personal implications of the change for them from their line manager.

The executive sponsor also plays an important role in creating a coalition of sponsors throughout the organisation among peers and managers.

Warner told Bancroft how to tamper: CA

Life’s not so good for David Warner, who has just been dumped by his sponsor LG.Cricket Australia (CA) has fingered banned vice-captain David Warner as the architect of a plan to cheat, alleging he advised Cameron Bancroft how to alter the ball with sandpaper in Cape Town.
Nanjing Night Net

CA has charged Warner, Bancroft and Steve Smith over the ball-tampering scandal, with a series of sanctions headlined by long bans.

The trio have been booked for conduct that is “contrary to the spirit of the game”, “unbecoming of a representative or official”, “is or could be harmful to the interests of cricket”, and/or “did bring the game of cricket into disrepute”.

Warner and Smith have been given 12-month suspensions, while Bancroft has been rubbed out for nine months. Players have seven days to consider the charges.

It’s understood Warner, who is unlikely to ever play for Australia again as his stunning fall from grace continues apace, is the only player strongly considering the merits of challenging his charge.

CA has made it abundantly clear who it believes was most culpable and deceptive in the shameful saga that has triggered nation-wide outrage, with fresh waves of anger expected when the public learn players lied about what Bancroft stuffed down his pants.

CA alleges Warner was solely responsible for the “development of a plan to attempt to artificially alter the condition of the ball”, instructing “a junior player to carry out a plan”, and providing “advice to a junior player regarding how a ball could be artificially altered, including demonstrating how it could be done”.

CA also claims Warner failed to “voluntarily report his knowledge of the plan after the match”, whereas Smith and Bancroft came clean.

The bombshell came after Warner lost a personal sponsor LG and was blacklisted from the Indian Premier League, where he was set to earn $2.4 million captaining Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The hard-hitting opener’s relationship with teammates has hit rock bottom in recent days, while CA’s fed-up board has told Warner he will never hold another leadership position.

It is possible Warner could be frozen out of the national set-up once a 12-month suspension expires, a la Kevin Pietersen’s messy divorce from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Warner’s talent is immense but many teammates view him as a divisive and negative influence.

Members of the touring party were shocked to see their vice-captain drinking champagne at the team hotel on Monday, when CA’s integrity chief Iain Roy grilled players over the ball-tampering ploy.

It was only a month ago when Warner was the toast of Australian cricket, earning plaudits from teammates and coaches for the way he led the side to Twenty20 tri-series success in New Zealand.

Warner is a genuine rock star in India and had initially been confident of not only taking part in the T20 tournament, but retaining his lucrative leadership post with Hyderabad.

Meanwhile, LG has confirmed it will not renew its soon-to-expire deal with Warner.

“In light of recent events, we have decided not to renew our partnership,” a spokeswoman said.

“LG Australia will always look to work with ambassadors that share our core brand values and we take these relationships incredibly seriously.”

Think about hiring a graduate

Students: Work- placement challenges.
Nanjing Night Net

Recently I’ve been hanging out with a range of uni students:accounting, business, HR mainly.

I am hearing very similar challenges from them around such things as knowing how to practically prepare themselves for the workforce;understanding how critical networking is to their success;working out how to compete successfully for the all-important first job;getting that the skills that they need to succeed in the workforce are different to being a student and major challenges finding organisations that will do an internship or work placement.

In this process I have also noticed that they are flexible and adaptable, with ideas ahead of their time, loads of energy andaccess to recent global best practice. It made me wonder how eager are we – in workplaces – to provide students with their first employment opportunity?

Hire a graduate, see what happens.

What the council has revealed so far is four roles –regulatory services manager, director planning and regulatory, director cultural facilities and civil works manager – will no longer exist.

“I would like to thank these staff for their contributions to our city during their periods with council,” Mr Bath said.

The overhaul will also give Newcastle Museum and the art gallery directors, with managersJulie Baird and Lauretta Morton taking on those mantles respectively.

The appointments for the pair, who have each managed the institution they will lead, were announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Ms Morton has overseen 30 exhibitions at the gallery, while Ms Baird led the museum’s transition from Newcastle West to Honeysuckle.

Newcastle City Council chief executive Jeremy Bath said the appointments were made under a new organisational design endorsed in confidential session at Tuesday night’s meeting.

“The organisation design will be shared in full with staff and the public next Tuesday,” Mr Bath said.“The new structure will ensure staff more clearly understand their role and purpose, and will deliver a better focus on servicing the community.”

Lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes said the change brought the two cultural institutions into line with others of their calibre in titling the leaders as directors.

“It highlights the importance of these two cultural institutions and their role in attracting visitors to the city,” she said.

“In their respective industry worlds, the title of director better ensures quality collections, astute acquisitions and also helps attract donations,” Cr Nelmes said.“This change will further consolidate the importance of these facilities to our city.”

Refugee protesters target question time

Eight refugee protesters have been dragged from question time in federal parliament.Refugee protesters have been dragged from parliament by security after climbing over seats and shouting at the government during question time.
Nanjing Night Net

As Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull rose to defend the government’s company tax cuts eight protesters climbed to the front row of the public gallery and linked arms to brace themselves against security.

“We have lost our moral compass, you shame us on the international stage,” the group shouted in unison.

“You criminalise people asking for help.”

A dozen security guards rushed in dragging the group from the public gallery within minutes of their protest beginning.

Mr Turnbull continued to spruik company tax cuts throughout, without acknowledging the group.

“I am comforted that my microphone is the only one that is on at the moment,” he joked.

The protesters, including one man with pink hair and a facial tattoo, were escorted from the chamber.

“We are deeply concerned about the concentration of power in the hands of Minister Dutton and the Home Affairs Department,” group spokeswoman Sam Castro told AAP.

Taylor left the award-winning Hobarts by Lesley Taylor at Wests New Lambton’s Level One Dining precinctlast year and is now at the helm of Lesley Taylor at Merewether Surfhouse. The modern Australian, a la carterestaurant offers incrediblecoastal views.

Taylor, originally from Cessnock, began her apprenticeship at The Cellar Restaurant at the age of 16, honing her craft while developing a passion for impeccably-presented French cuisine. In the 1990s she took over the kitchen at Cafe Albion and earned Newcastle’sfirst chef’s hat in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.

She owned and operatedthe acclaimed Restaurant Deux and French bistro Le Petit Deux, which was later reborn as Made by Lesley Taylor, and herinfluence has also extended tothe kitchens at Merewether’s Osteria, the Clarendon Hotel and Longworth House, and to cookery students as a teacher at Hunter TAFE.

Sitting above Newcastle’s iconic Merewether beach at the south end of the popular Bathers Way coastal walk, Surfhouse boasts a restaurant, function areas, cafe and pizza bar. It takes in views north to Bar Beach, the Anzac Walk and Strzelecki lookout and south across Glenrock Reserve to the headland at Dudley Beach.

Taylor’s two-pronged approach to creating a dish is based on presentation anda clever balance of flavours.

“People eat with their eyes so stunning presentation is important,” she said.“Then it’s about education –people wanting to come back and try different things.”

A highlight is the seared scallops and pressed pork hock with watermelon kimchi, green pea and wasabi puree. Another is the surf and turf which combines oxtail ragout and assorted mushroom and potato foam to wood-grilled market fish.

“I’ve changed the menu at Surfhouse to suit my style. My name’s on the door and that’s me on the plate. I try to make something beautiful from nothing.”

Lesley Taylor at Merewether Surfhouse is open Wednesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner, and lunch on Sundays.

Troublesome achilles hampers Pearson

Sally Pearson’s Commonwealth Games build-up is being hampered by an achilles complaint.World champion hurdler Sally Pearson is managing an untimely achilles injury that has rocked her confidence leading up to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Nanjing Night Net

Pearson, the 2012 Olympic champion, revealed on Wednesday her right achilles had forced her to miss several training sessions and compromised her technique two weeks out from her home event.

The 31-year-old Gold Coaster admitted she has had grave doubts about whether she would make it to the start line at Carrara Stadium for the April 12 heats in the 100m hurdles at the Games.

But her spirits were lifted with an impressive and trouble-free 4x100m lead-off relay run at the final Games warm-up meet in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

Pearson was actually made to run closer to 150m after a late recall from a false start in the race, which the England team won in 43.20 seconds, 0.56sec ahead of Australia.

Her split, into a headwind around the bend at the State Athletics Facility, gave her cause for relief, particularly as it was her fastest since the Daegu 2011 world championships in South Korea.

“I’m a pure sprinter and running more than 100m is quite difficult for me,” she said.

“But it’s the fastest time I’ve run since Daegu so I’m very, very excited.

“I’m going to do everything I possibly can from now until the Commonwealth Games. It’s looking more and more that racing is on the cards.”

But Pearson admitted she would have to be on her “A-game” to claim a third straight Commonwealth 100m hurdles title.

She said she’d been carrying the injury through the season and it got worse two months ago, forcing her to forgo technical work due to the intense pain on her toes.

“I think I’ll be right to race. It’s just whether my confidence is right to race,” she said.

“Missing a lot of technique work does take it’s toll.”

After three years blighted by serious wrist, hamstring and achilles injuries, Pearson made a triumphant return to the global stage in London last August when she won a second world title.

She cruised to victory at the Games trials on the Gold Coast last month before being run out in the semis of the 60m hurdles at the world indoor championships in Birmingham.

“I was pretty down a few weeks ago but the last week I’ve been training well. The pain’s there but it’s manageable,” she said.

Australian head coach Craig Hilliard said Pearson had dealt with the problem and managed with it in the past.

“She’s missed a few training sessions and some of the sessions she has done haven’t been quite where she wanted them to be,” he told AAP.

“As we know, she’s a perfectionist.

“It’s crappy timing for her but she’ll work her way through it.”
