Succession Planning Workshop


Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing new leaders who can replace old leaders when they leave or retire. Succession planning increases the availability of experienced and capable committee members that are prepared to assume these roles as they become available. Taken narrowly, "replacement planning" for key roles is the heart of succession planning (Wikipedia).
Did you know that 46% of organizations have effective succession planning in place? (Stanford, 2010).

IN THIS WORKSHOP, you will learn about the six intrinsic drivers of motivation, self-assess where you are performing at your best and develop an action plan to feel better and stay on track over the 2020/2021 year ahead. You will learn how to:

  • Identify the 3-stages of succession planning;
  • Apply the desire-performance matrix to assess internal leadership potential within your student group;
  • Explore the 4-M's of leadership development;
  • Create a leadership value proposition for new leaders;
  • Complete a succession planning template for committee development and role passover.

Volunteer & Team Managment Workshop

How do you stay motivated and where does motivation come from? In this workshop, you will learn about the six intrinsic drivers of motivation, self-assess where you are performing at your best and develop an action plan to feel better and stay on track over the 2020/2021 year ahead.

You will learn how to:

  • Describe the 4-stages of team formation: Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing (Dr Bruce Tuckman);
  • Describe the 6-drivers of motivation;
  • Assess their personal motivation hierarchy across the 6-drivers of motivation;
  • Understand and empathize with the needs of volunteers and peers;

Annual General Meeting Q&A Session

Got questions about Annual General Meetings?

  • Did you know you that you need to run one EVERY year to report on the year, vote and elect your committee for the incoming year?
  • Did you know that ALL (Curtin student) members of your club should have the opportunity to nominate themselves and vote? And that your current executive committee or parent organisation CANNOT handpick students for these committee roles?
  • Do you want to introduce a custom constitution or make changes to yours? If so, did you know you should contact the Guild first to notify us of your intensions so we can provide advice?

We'd like to go over the process of the AGM guidelines AND Guild's club constitution to bring up common mistakes and answer all of your questions.

Monday 12th October from 4pm.
