Professor Ann Brewer

Ann is the Dean of the University of Newcastle, Sydney. She has spent almost a decade understanding and researching continuing professional education both in Australia and globally and plans to use this know-how to strengthen UON’s strategy in Sydney.

Professor Ann Brewer As an academic, Ann started out working in Health Administration, then moved to Public Policy and Business. Ann has held an Honorary Professorship in the Faculty of Education, the University of Sydney for a number of years.

Winding the clock back, Ann was the longest serving Deputy Vice Chancellor at the University of Sydney. In this role Ann was both people and performance focused and understood that organisations thrive based on successful and sustainable management and businesses practices. She had diverse portfolios ranging from core operations, staffing, quality assurance, industrial relations and EBA negotiations.

As an Organisational Psychologist Ann was fortunate to receive rigorous development through knowledge based on research evidence and this has been translated into her work practices.

"I enjoyed breaking down complex problems into parts that people could work on to resolve.

"A strong foundation in Organisational Psychology has held me in good stead. I also qualified as an executive coach some years ago, bringing the two practices together. I realised that an investment in coaching and mentoring was important for leadership development.

"Working with individuals and teams is one thing and aligning their values to those of the organisation is another. Changing a culture means teams often having to do things differently. Understanding the importance of followers in the leadership equation is essential and how to use authority and influence is essential.

"In my roles, I have been engaged in periods of significant change, restructuring, doing more with less and reshaping a team. Team development is a vital part of bringing people with you.

"I believe that shaping the culture and tapping into leadership capability of an organisation is one of the most important things that managers can do. Learning how to do this is vital for successful cultural change.

"I have had the good fortune to be able to contribute to numerous organisations as a consultant and board member including the Performing Arts, Health, Services, transport, logistics and the military as well as facilitating mediations between management and unions in private enterprises.

"One of my passions is developing and designing courses and that is why my new role as Dean of Sydney campus has been right step for me moving forward.”

Ann is the author of eight books, most recently on leadership, coaching and mentoring, and over 50 publications in journals, book chapters and conference proceedings.

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016. This book examines the concept and practice of mentoring, as well as the wider scope and diversity of the mentoring that people can experience in their own life time. With each chapter dedicated to a specific level of mentoring, the book makes clear the impact and value of mentoring not only for the participants themselves but also on the situations in which mentoring occurs and the reverberations, positive and negative, on others outside this relationship. It shows the importance of relationships for people, individually and collectively and clarifies how relationships form the DNA for an inspiring, creative and professional life for the person and the community in which they engage. The book is about how support and skills can be transferred through mentoring to rebuild resilience through positive relationships and community; reconstructing them as we go.

© Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2014. This volume presents evidence-based ideas on all three converging forces to suit an array of individuals and their organisations. The volume is thick with evidence, detail and case studies that the reader can draw upon and apply to their own situations. Defining exactly what is leadership has been a persistent problem for researchers and theorists. Discovering how to create or produce leaders likewise has been a difficult challenge over the years. Written by an academic, executive and coach, the author focuses on three important converging aspects: leadership, followership and coaching. Focus on leaders is disproportionate to what actually occurs within most organisations especially the relationship between the leader and the followers. That leadership is tantamount with being in control of a situation is challenged, together with the belief that leadership capability is primarily shaped in line with a set of success criteria. The coach plays a significant part in this process although rarely visible.

© 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. All rights reserved. This chapter focuses on gaining an up-to-date understanding of the mentoring relationship between mentors and protégés. It offers some practical insights for conceptualising and establishing mentoring relationships. Several questions are addressed: What do we understand by mentoring? What is it about the mentoring relationship that allows a person's potential to emerge, be shaped or flourish? What are the types of mentoring available? How is the mentoring relationship qualitatively different from other types of relationships? What are the benefits for mentors and the different ways of mentoring which are more effective than others? Does it make a difference the way this relationship comes about? What about training for mentors?

The Sydney Olympics held in September 2000 provided an opportunity to monitor the planning of transport provision for the world's greatest sporting spectacular. As the single largest major event, the pressures on a city's transport system are enormous, as witnessed by the previous Games in Atlanta and Barcelona. This paper takes a value-chain approach to assess transport performance as a crucial element in the delivery of the Sydney Olympic Games. We begin with a brief overview of strategic value, highlighting some generic aspects of value chains followed by the transport delivery system that came to the fore as significant 'drivers' in the value chain. This is followed by a summary of the effectiveness of the buses, trains, taxis, roads and the airport. A more detailed look is provided of the private bus sector where the problems leading up the opening of the Games received a great deal of media attention. The paper concludes with two stories, one good, one not so good, about transport and the Olympic Games.

This paper develops a framework within which multiple agents make discrete choices in respect of a common objective - the determination of participation in distributed work, especially the opportunities and constraints associated with telecommuting. Ideas in discrete choice theory and game theory are combined to define a set of choice experiments in which employees and employers interact in arriving at a choice path in a distributed work context. A state choice experiment with offers and feedback, known as an interactive agency choice experiment (IACE), is empirically investigated in the context of telecommuting options with an exploratory sample of employees and employers in Sydney, Australia. The approach highlights the role of information and negotiation in breaking down the barriers to more flexible work activity, to deliver potential benefits to the transport system such as reduced traffic congestion and environmental sustainability. The paper identifies the types of incentives that an employee/er has to offer the employer/employee in securing effective telecommuting. © 2000 Kluwer Academic Publishers.

Road rage is a form of aggressive behaviour by drivers on roadways. Recent media speculation implies that some drivers are more susceptible to road rage than others. For example, one commercial study indicated that women are increasingly the perpetrators of road rage. Although research of this kind makes good media headlines, there has been little serious scientific attention on this phenomenon. While the potential impacts of road rage are unknown, its major implication for road safety for drivers and others using roadways is apparent. Careful investigation into road rage may provide greater insight into the contributing factors of specific types of road accidents, e.g. culpable driving. It may also lead to the development of enhanced coping strategies for professional drivers. The focus of this paper is on the motivating and activating context of road rage and also is a theoretical perspective on roadway aggression and the diffusion of this form of travel behaviour. © 2000, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

This paper examines the assumptions of work design and its impact on how work is conceived and designed, the important linkages to travel behaviour to and from work and subsequent impacts on traffic mix in urban areas. These issues have not been substantively addressed by management or government and are forming a barrier to FWA. The focus of this paper is to look at the broader framework of work design in the context of the emergence of distributed work, diffusion of communications technology, and their influence on introducing real flexibility into work and its potential impact on travel behaviour. Specifically the study investigates the extent to which place, distance and time, the limiting dimensions in travel behaviour, serve as a major barrier to flexible work design and work scheduling. Flexible work arrangements will only become a reality by developing acceptable employment policies both at government and corporate levels. The paper concludes by analysing two policy options.

The focus of this study was the Board of Airline Representatives of Australia (BARA), a voluntary, non-profit organisation, established as an incorporated body in 1989, (although operating unofficially in previous years) to afford a recognised means of communication between the airlines and relevant statutory and other bodies in Australia, whose interests and actions influence those of the airlines. BARA is an industry organisation who monitors, evaluates and petitions other agencies in the airline industry for the benefit of its membership in regard to airport regulations, agreements and charges, aviation infrastructure, safety and security, the processing of airline customers, and industrial relations. The interrelationship between effective membership and organisational strategy has significant ramifications for the success of Boards of Airline Representatives elsewhere in the world and for umbrella organisations such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The conceptual framework presented in the paper uses theory underlying strategic intent and incentives for voluntary membership in industry organisations as well as membership participation. A stated choice experiment embedded within a self-administered survey was used to clarify the strategic direction of BARA; investigate incentives used to retain membership in the context where non-members benefit from its activities, and ascertain choices that members make in relation to their participation. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd.

Examines the relationship of managerial strategy and organizational commitment among drivers working in the private bus industry. Investigates the dimensions of managerial strategy and organizational commitment. Data were collected by survey questionnaire. Demonstrates that managerial strategy plays a key integrative role in generating organizational commitment among bus drivers. Decentralized authority, participative management, and resource adequacy were the most relevant factors in the development of organizational commitment. Found that employees felt blocked in using their initiative, experienced a power distance between managers and drivers, and were not recognized for non-driving activities. Suggests that managers and supervisors need to look at structures and processes which encourage participation and decentralized authority so that employees maintain involvement in their organizations. © 1996, MCB UP Limited

This paper is based on a study of workforce implications of new medical technology. The research was conducted in hospitals in Victoria, Australia, over a two-year period from 1985 to 1987. It was found that the decision to adopt new medical technology is influenced strongly by managerial strategy. The organisation of nursing has changed with the introduction of new technology. Nurses have little control over skill formation, job design or participation in administrative or clinical decision-making.

Differences in self-esteem and selected aspects of the domestic division of labour were compared using a survey sample of 80 married couples, half of whom had a dual-career marriage pattern. Self-esteem was positively related to masculinity in both wives and husbands and was higher for career wives than housewives. The husband's self-esteem in dual-career marriages was somewhat lower than that in single-career marriages. There was noreduction in household task performance but there was lower decision power and less sharing of responsibility for the career wife. The relationship between career status of the wife and her self-esteem was shown to be mediated by performance of household tasks: Wivesand husbands who did less relative to their spouses had higher self-esteem. © 1982 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

The purpose of this article is to examine the nature of work design in relation to flexible work scheduling (FWS), particularly in respect to participation by women and men. There is a paucity of research evidence on this topic. Work design, essentially an artefact of enterprise culture, is constructed by the social rules of place, distance and time. Work practices that assume that work tasks are only conducted in the workplace during standard work time in the proximity of co-workers and managers do not, in the main, support FWS. While there is no significant evidence in this study that women and men perceive the barriers differently when considering taking up the option to engage in FWS options, the study addresses the reasons for this using a large survey of the Australian workforce. This article concludes that it is time to redefine these critical work design dimensions, in relation to existing power structures, in order to inject real flexibility into the workplace.
