Gail Kelly’s presence reaches far beyond her own profession. The first female CEO of one of Australia’s big four banks, listed by Forbes in 2010 as the 8th most powerful woman in the world, and mother of four (including triplets), Gail is celebrated as one of our finest, most innovative thinkers on leadership and workplace culture. In these personal, practical chapters, Gail Kelly shares what she’s learned over her remarkable career, drawing from her personal and professional life. As a leader, she argues passionately for the importance of putting people and customers at the heart of a business; of leading with courage and generosity of spirit; and of resilience. Some of those lessons were learnt at times of high pressure, and Gail takes us into her thinking as she led Westpac through the global financial crisis and the merger with St. George. But Gail’s voice speaks to each of us, whatever our role in life. She explores the absolute importance of loving what you do; learning to learn; backing yourself; and most importantly, placing your family above all things. At the heart of Gail’s refreshing, authentic, integrated approach is how both individuals and companies thrive when they openly address the meaning of what they do, and understand the need to live a whole life. Live, Lead, Learn is the inspiring story of one of the world’s most prominent business people, who started as a Latin teacher and became mother of four and CEO of Westpac – and everything she has learned along the way.

Learn to Lead, Lead to Learn is based on the assumption that learning is essential to our ability to adapt and innovate as individuals and organizations. For our schools and organizations to thrive, our leaders must be, first and foremost, voracious learners who create, nurture and sustain conditions that enhance learning individually and collectively. The purpose of this book is to help uncover some of the essential attributes and practices key to learning and leading. Eight leadership growth attributes are highlighted, that when developed and reinforced through iterative practice, enhance learning and the capacity to adapt and transform. The leader attributes include: aspiration, agility, curiosity, intellectual humility, courage, rebelliousness, enthusiasm and a driving spirit. The leader must also ensure that the organization is equipped to continually learn and grow. Related to each personal attribute there is a similar organizational growth attribute that when effectively integrated can enhance organizational learning and the capacity of the organization to adapt and innovate. The eight organizational attributes include: purpose, imagination, exploration, diversity, organizational justice, disruption, urgency and bold moves.

Learning to Lead for Transformation takes an international and inclusive approach, exploring learning and educational leadership from different cultural and theoretical perspectives, from Habermas' theory of cognitive interests to Freire's approach to education and Ngara's decolonized epistemology and Ubuntu-based developmental approach. Enriching his presentation with Japanese and Western examples, Ngara uses the African tradition of storytelling as well as engaging exercises to explore: - The developmental approach to teaching and learning - The link between the proposed pedagogy and leadership development - The importance of relevant curriculum content - The importance of approaches based on indigenous knowledge systems or cultural traditions. Each topic is introduced with a “tuning in exercise”, and the reader is guided to reflect on their own experiences and understanding throughout the book with discussion points and activities.
