Crown’s Got ‘The Edge’
At Crown we have some amazing women across all of our divisions and believe that every woman in business needs and deserves a supportive environment. Earlier this year Crown Worldwide New Zealand brought together a group of eleven talented women to form ‘THE EDGE’ – Crown NZ’s Women in Leadership Forum.
E – empowerment
D – development
G – growth
E – excellence
The Edge creates an environment of motivation, learning and inspiration where Crown women can strive to achieve their goals. With an array of valuable and interesting topics this forum provides women a chance to share successes and potential issues, brainstorm ideas and ask for advice – all while having fun and getting to know each other.
Eleven Amazing Crown Women
The leadership forum, who meet regularly, comprises of eleven successful and inspirational women thinking big in moving and logistics. The group is diverse with participants from across our business units including World Mobility, Customer Services, Operations, Finance, Quality, IT and Marketing.
One of Crown’s goals is to get staff to do the best work of their lives. The Edge is designed to give women the support, knowledge and skills that are essential success factors for our business moving forward.
“At Crown we believe that leadership exists throughout our organisation and that gives us a crucial advantage within our sector. Our commitment to developing our people, especially those currently in management positions is an important cornerstone of our 2019 Learning and Development programme.” Lesley Beacham – Human Resources Manager.
Create More Inspiring Moments
Empowerment, development, employee engagement, coaching and leading different personalities are just some of the topics discussed at previous forums held this year.
“It is such a pleasure to be part of this group, I’m so proud that our female leaders are truly valued as innovators and influencers. We’ve had great sessions, with some really exciting and thought provoking topics!” Kerry James – Mobility Services Manager
Setting The Scene
Taking the time to celebrate women in the business is very special, what better place to do this than … ‘Sculptureum’ – Auckland’s best kept secret. Set in the far north of Auckland this venue hosts beautiful gardens and art from around the globe to inspire, uplift and amuse everyone who passes through.
This impressive venue set the scene for a workshop on ‘World Class Leadership’. The forum engaged in discussions around leadership profiles and influencing styles taking a deep dive into personality traits. The field trip then finished with a tour of the gardens and gallery which entertained and motivated the team.
