    Abstract

    The Workforce Development (WFD) 'TIPS' Kit provides a unique range of user-friendly and practical WFD tools and resources for the AOD workforce targeted at supervisors, managers, policy makers and other key individuals within the AOD field who are likely to engage in WFD activities and interventions. The kit is designed to assist with the development of strategies to:

    support frontline workers (e.g., mentoring, stress management)
    ensure high levels of skill and knowledge (e.g., professional development strategies, clinical supervision)
    facilitate positive organisational change (e.g., change management tools and resources)
    support effective team work (e.g., approaches to improve cohesion and communication)
    optimise staff motivation and satisfaction (e.g., approaches to effectively supporting and rewarding staff, effective methods of providing feedback).
