About the workshop

Ongoing transformation across the NTPS drives the need for effective leadership performance across all levels. Responsive and adaptable leaders are critical to navigate this change successfully, and ensure the commitment to high level service delivery across the state. To step up as leader, you must be strategic, influential and take responsibility for highly complex projects, and successfully align organisational policies and strategies with the entire agency.

Aimed at AO6-7 level leaders, managers and officers, this workshop will provide you the tools to build autonomy in your teams and become an influential senior decision maker. Sharpen your unique skill set to unlock your potential and take the next step in your career. This intensive professional development opportunity will set you up to hone your existing leadership competencies and acquire new skills and strategies to achieve the leadership goals of tomorrow.
