John Girardi has had more than 20 years’ experience working at a senior level within the Human Resources discipline and delivering management training to hundreds of managers.
John has had extensive experience with delivering HR services in a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, supply chain, pharmacy, and government. He as a HR Manager in the Department of Premier and Cabinet in Queensland, and as a HR manager at Linfox, where he worked at one of Coles’ largest distribution centres in the country, managing the HR function for a site that employed more than 500 employees.
More than 20 years ago, John developed an interest in the invisible side of organisations. It was the subject of his Master’s thesis. This is the side of a business that you can’t value by looking at financial statements, but research, and our experience with organisations, shows that these aspects of a business have an impact on profits.
John draws on extensive experience in the HR discipline, a Masters of Business, and a Post-Graduate diploma in Psychology. He also lectured in Organisational Behaviour at Queensland University of Technology.
John is interested in things like employee motivation and how to build it, the skill-level of a workforce, why some employees go above and beyond (and how to develop that work ethic), morale, energy, and communication (particularly management communication, such as providing direction and feedback to a team). He is particularly interested in how to develop managers so that they can grow this side of a business.
