Women in Leadership

Shirley McLeod

On Monday 7 May 2018, Shirley McLeod (a project manager from Wellington) spoke to the group about her experiences in leading major projects with the New Zealand Police (she was responsible for implementing the Criminal Procedures Act 2011 which required huge practical changes to existing systems) and other large government agencies.

Shirley also teaches yoga and mindfulness to corporate clients.  As part of this business she is very active on social media and talked about the real dangers that social media often poses for young teenagers and the need for parents to help each other and work with the schools to find ways to protect youngsters from harmful social media activity.

Shirley emphasised key leadership qualities of respect, kindness, passion for your work, making clear and understandable requests of those you lead and being mindful and attentive when listening to those you lead and otherwise engage with.
