About the workshop
Local government continues to transform, creating challenges and opportunities for leaders in local councils. To achieve success, leaders must be equipped with the skills to navigate the sector's challenges, deal with change and drive transformation. It is crucial to possess a well-rounded set of skills, focused political acumen and to embody an influential leadership style.
This hands-on, two-day interactive workshop has been designed with both current and emerging leaders in mind. It will equip you with a practical leadership plan that you can use to navigate a successful career and advance to senior levels.
