LeadingWell Queensland is a collaboration between SuperFriend and WorkCover Queensland. The Collaboration is working together to create thriving workplaces across Queensland by focusing on strategic leadership events, access to practical tools and resources, and the sharing of best practice information. LeadingWell Queensland is focused on building and maintaining mentally healthy workplaces – for every person, every organisation, every day.
Since its creation in 2017, LeadingWell Queensland has hosted a series of leadership breakfasts and practical masterclasses across Queensland, including Brisbane, Mackay and Cairns.
In 2018, LeadingWell Queensland commenced a project with Professor Alex Haslam and the University of Queensland called 5R: Leading Inclusive Teams, an evidence-based leadership program delivered with industry in Mackay. The project used experiential learning approaches over a 3-5 month period to increase leaders’ capacity to build shared social identity within their teams in ways that promote inclusiveness and optimise mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. The 26 leaders who participated represented a diverse range of occupations and industries (such as manufacturing, mining, health, education, local government, emergency services, transport and not-for-profit). The outcomes of the project and case stories were presented at a leadership breakfast in Brisbane in November 2018.
