Janet Dore talks to LV about leadership

24 April 2012 By Hannah Carrodus

Janet Dore is not afraid of making bold decisions.

When she was CEO of the City of Ballarat between 1994-1999 Janet oversaw the Development of the $4m Eureka Stockade centre. As General Manager of Newcastle City Council from 1999-2007, Janet oversaw the planning for a $35m redevelopment of the Newcastle Region Art Gallery.  And in 2008, as the CEO of the Transport Accident Commission, Janet was responsible for organising the TAC’s relocation to Geelong.

Janet’s vibrant career has consisted of an interesting array of senior positions within the public sector and she is certainly a leader with a vision.

Janet says she is proud the TAC continues to be a Leadership Victoria (LV) partner, which it has been since 1997.

Here Janet talks about what makes an effective leader and why the TAC has continued its involvement with LV.  She also talks about the challenges of leading a workforce-the TAC- whose workers are 70 per cent female.
