About the workshop
Responsive and adaptable leadership is critical when navigating change successfully. Leaders who are responsible for this must be strategic, influential, and take responsibility for highly complex projects. This is particularly true for those in EL1 & EL2 roles.
Aimed at EL1 & EL2 level officers and management, this two-day workshop will deliver the essential toolkit for leading successfully in the Australian Public Sector. It will provide you with the chance to hone your current leadership skill set, as well as acquire new ones for taking the next step in your career.
