About the workshop

Shifts and transformations occurring nationally and internationally have a dramatic effect on the NSW Public Sector. Responsive and adaptable leaders are critical when navigating this change successfully. Aligning organisational policies and strategies with the entire branch is crucial. Leaders who are responsible for this must be strategic, influential and take responsibility for highly complex projects. They must also communicate and enable their team to effectively see these projects through. This is particularly true for those in Grades 11-12 roles, where accountability and the ability to deal with highly sensitive issues is required.

Aimed at future leaders and Grade 11-12 level officers and management, this two-day workshop will deliver the essential toolkit for leading successfully in the NSW Public Sector. It will provide you with the chance to hone your existing leadership competencies and acquire new skills as you take the next step in your career.

Undertaking increasing managerial responsibilities and cultivating the strategic foresight to adapt to emerging challenges is key to success. This program will delve into the increasing complexities of stakeholder management, building autonomous teams and becoming an influential senior decision-maker.
