    Speaker details: Colette Cavaleros

    Colette is Managing Partner at WorkInFlow, a boutique Organisational Development consultancy. With a passion for creating the conditions for Flow, her work centers around:

    • Creating flow for individuals through supporting them to identify and realise their full potential. She works with individuals to ensure they are in the right roles, at the right time, and continue to feel energised and engaged at work.

    • Creating flow for leaders through empowering them to identify, develop and retain mission-critical talent, and equipping them to get the best out of their people.

    • Creating flow in the organisation through supporting the creation of optimal (requisite) structures that are fit-for-purpose and aligned to strategy.

    An organisational psychologist with over 25 years' experience in the industry, Colette has accumulated a wealth of consulting experience across the full spectrum of organisational development, in private and public companies across a multitude of industries in New Zealand, Australia and internationally. She incorporates the use of robust and best practice methods, assessments and techniques to make the implicit explicit, and works closely with her clients to leverage analytics and insights to facilitate strategic decisions across the full HR value chain.

    Speaker details: Melanie Weir

    Melanie has worked with Langley Group for over 8 years, and in this time contributed to the application of positive psychology in many forms to work and wellbeing. The Langley Group facilitator and key consultant with Work on Wellbeing, a robust and complex wellbeing measurement tool, Mel will share a case study for wellbeing measurement to inform strategy.

    Organisations are responsible for measuring safety and wellbeing and caring for people at work. Many HR and wellbeing specialists may agree with this statement, yet it can be challenging to understand how to deliver effective strategy in the complex, sensitive and individualised space of wellbeing at work.

    We explore a case study of what effect flexible, responsive wellbeing diagnostics can do when endorsed by the people and the executive. Hear how a large programme of work can develop over time, give ready access to leaders on what is important or changing in the team environment, plus provide evidence for wellbeing interventions or investment.

    In this insightful session we will:

    ·       examine an end-to-end case study of large wellbeing strategy implementation

    ·       explore diagnostic, understanding, culture and interventions

    ·       understand how people and teams are empowered to make a difference to group


    ·       share the celebrations and challenges


    The event is free for NZAPP members and a limited number of guest tickets are available for $25. The recording and slides of the event will only be available to members of NZAPP.
