I love this short story about ‘The Star Thrower’ because I believe that people should have a great day at work, every day. I believe that we all have a leadership role to play.
- The Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner reported that 28 per cent of women had experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, compared to seven per cent of men. The best way to reduce these figures is to not be tolerant of sexual harassment.
- Over the past five years there has been a 56% increase in the number of inquiries made to the Australian Human Rights Commission in regard to incidents of discrimination. Values based leadership and programs reduce discrimination.

I believe that we can all make a contribution – person by person, workplace by workplace. I believe that people do their best work when they feel safe, engaged and part of something bigger than themselves. I believe that no person should be bullied, discriminated against or sexually harassed at work. I believe we can all make a difference, through our leadership and values. Contribution is important.
How can your leadership change the the world of one person?
