ComLink knows that its greatest asset is its people. As a result of our strong focus on growth, 2017-18 required a strong focus on leadership development.

ComLink held a 5-day Leadership Retreat on the Sunshine Coast, with the retreat theme of ‘Building the Revolution’. Coordinators and Managers from across the state came together to learn and share their knowledge and skill in areas such as people management, wellness, work safety and key client challenges such as dementia, social isolation and loneliness.

The Retreat also welcomed guest speaker, Bruce Williams, a noted facilitator from Easy Teams. The team enjoyed a day of self-development as they investigated their Myers-Briggs Type Indicators. Bruce’s insights left a lasting impression on our leaders and this has been instrumental in creating a more emotionally-intelligent cohort.

The outcomes of the Leadership Retreat were met with 100% of the participants reporting that the program added to their confidence and competence as ComLink leaders. ComLink hopes to deliver this program on an annual basis.
