Industry Speaker Week 6 (MBA401)
    Name of the Industry Speaker (Full Name): Paulette Kolarz
    Position /Title: General Manager of HR
    Organisation represented: HR recruitment, training, coaching business based in LA also servicing in Australia
    Date of the Lecture and class attended:
    Topic of the Industry lecture: People, culture and contemporary leadership
    In discussing/analysing the Industry Speaker, you should refer to at least (3) theories that you can covered in the subject so far and provide examples from your own experiences. It is not enough to repeat what the Speaker has said
    · Identify three key points addressed by the Industry speaker
Three major points that have been discussed by the industry speaker in this lecture can be summarised as:
1. The leadership of an organisation must think strategically to ensure that they are efficient enough in the tasks they undertake. The speaker stated that the efficiency of the leaders and their ability to think critically can engage employees within the workplace. A leader must be efficient enough to modify their support as per the needs and requirements of the members of their team.
2. The industrial speaker further mentioned that in order to recruit and maintain a good human resource, the leadership of an organisation must be efficient and effective. Leaders should know their strengths and skills to be strong with people.
3. It is good if HR personnel focus on strategically partnering with people as well as the business platform to ensure that there is a proper balance between the people and the business so that things land up properly in place. HR management in the recent times is more inclined towards establishing a connection with the people and their culture rather than focusing on traditional methods of hiring and firing of employees.
    · What were the three key things that you learnt from the Industry speaker and how might you apply them in your cu
ent role or possible future career (use personal examples)
Three things that I learnt from the industry speaker that will assist me in my future career endeavours are:
1. As per my understanding of the lecture, I could make out that focusing on consistency and strength of the leaders can help to improve the quality of leadership consequently leading to a successful business. Following this, I will conduct self-assessment tests to know about my strengths and the areas, where I can improve to enhance the quality of my leadership skills.
2. The industrial speaker further stated in her lecture that a good leader must have the ability to reflect on the work of their followers and provide them with required guidance to
ing them back on the track in case they are deviated. To improve my professional career in the future, I will ensure that I provide my followers with constructive and timely feedback so that they can improve their productivity and performance.
3. The speaker further shared the opinion that a leader can be though of a balanced leader, if he or she is able to help people improve in the areas, where they need assistance of a leader. To incorporate this into my career as a leader I will ensure that I alter my support according to the requirements of my teammates. This will help me immensely to emerge as a good leader.
    · Identify two challenges that was addressed by the Industry speaker and using your ideas make some suggestions that they might...
