Partnering for added oomph

Here on NZ Management magazine it’s part of our purpose to nail to the wall what good management and leadership is all about. Truth be told, sometimes it’s easier to point out what the bad stuff looks like. But that’s whole other story.
So we spend our days in pursuit of answers to questions like who’s good at managing and leading? What can we learn from those people and organisations who get it right? What are our collective strengths and weaknesses as Kiwi managers and leaders? How do we compare with others overseas?
So, we’re proud this month to be launching this year’s campaign to find New Zealand’s Most Reputable Organisation. As with so many of our big-picture initiatives we’re partnering with specialist provider for their added knowledge, expertise and bucket-loads of oomph. We’re teaming up with global management consulting firm Hay Group to entice business leaders the length and breadth of the country to share with us their pick of Kiwi organisations with rock-solid reputations.
For the first time, too, as part of our combined nationwide survey we’re probing for additional insights into both leadership and diversity, both of which rank as significant challenges for New Zealand managers.
Business leaders have until 1 June to fill out the short survey. (For more details, see the article “Have your say” on page five of this issue.) We’ll be revealing the final results in series of exclusive articles in our September edition.
We’re also in the final throes of calling for nominations for this year’s NZIM/Eagle Technology Young Executive of the Year Award. Now in its17th year, this award identifies new talent rising through the managerial ranks, and serve as heartwarming celebration of current and future potential. (For more details see the article “Top young execs” on page six and the advert on page 31 of this issue.) Business leaders have until 18 May to nominate their young executives for this award.
Other initiatives are underfoot: not least of which are the Deloitte/Management magazine Top 200 Awards which will this year culminate in gala dinner on November 29. Expect more, much more, about this in future issues. Expect, too, news of another initiative which, although still currently under wraps, will take the magazine in bold new direction.
Meanwhile, I’m just going to continue enjoying being part of wider community of managers and leaders who care about what’s happening in our small part of the planet, who are prepared to share their ideas and inspirations, and who, most of all, love to celebrate their own and others’ achievements.
