Page 8 by Angela Pattison, LGANT Staff from Roper Gulf Regional Council, Katherine Town Council and Victoria Daly Regional Council learned more about what it took to be a Local Government leader when they attended the Introduction to Leadership course on November 11. Presented by Allan Adams from Beyond IQ, the day included a range of modules which challenged participants' thinking about their workplace relationships and goal setting. In an effort to achieve clear communication with colleagues and clients, they also explored how to communicate effectively and deal with conflict, in particular how to deal with their own reactions and as a leader, how to deescalate conflict. The content was both challenging and revealing, as it critically examined participants' reactions to certain situations and sought the source of their emotional responses. Stakeholders have an opportunity to review the major achievements of the Council during the previous financial year after the 2015-16 Annual Report was endorsed by Elected Members at the Ordinary Meeting of Council on October 26. The report summarises the activities and performance of the Council each financial year against the main objectives, strategies and targets of its Strategic Plan, and Mayor Tony Jack urged staff, residents and ratepayers to take the time to read it. Its been a big year for the Council and we have been able to complete a lot of the Town Priority projects that communities wanted, he said. The Annual Report gives a complete overview of what Council has achieved during 2015-16. The report is available to download for free on the Council website.
