Congratulations to IAHSA’s 2015 Leadership Fellows!

IAHSA’s inaugural Global Leadership Retreat was launched in conjuction with the IAHSA-ACSA Global Ageing Conference in Perth Australia.

On 31 August 2015, 23 international leaders came together for 2 1/2 days to learn from one another and from experienced leaders in the field of ageing. The retreat was led by facilitators, Kay Kallandar and Jeremy Neely, and included facilitator teachings, conversations with visionary leaders, a site visit to a forward thinking and innovative community, as well as a variety of exercises, films and group discussions enriched by participants’ diverse perspectives. Partipants developed new skills, insights, ideas and confidence in providing leadership in times of change and innovation as well as an expanded global peer network to consult and connect with in the future.

2015 Leadership Fellow, Jackie Howard of Active Living in Australia, shared her retreat experience, “The Global Leadership Retreat gave me what I hoped for and so much more! In our busy lives we don’t take the time to stop and reflect, that is exactly what the retreat allowed me to do. It was a truly amazing 2 ½ days with outstanding facilitators and exceptional leaders openly and frankly sharing personal and heartfelt experiences and learnings. It allowed me the time to reflect on the importance of leading from ‘who you are and where you are’, and the significant power of words and attitude. I gained a few new tools and strategies in my tool box for my quest to be the best leader/person I can be. It was an uplifting experience and a privilege to share this with some of the most passionate leaders in aged care.”

Thank you to our wonderful facilitators and the 2015 Fellows for your part in making our inaugural leadership programme such a success! IAHSA looks forward to their continued leadership and contributions towards healthy ageing worldwide!
