About the workshop

The New Zealand Public Service is going through the biggest transformation in 30 years. For the first time, women hold the majority of executive leadership roles. This is a phenomenal sign that times are changing, but there is still a long way to go. These transformations have unlocked new and exciting opportunities for women leaders to smash through glass ceilings and become the change leaders of tomorrow.

To navigate this complex and changing environment, you need a clear understanding of yourself and the impact you have on your team, to lead change and deliver a public service that is agile and adaptive to New Zealanders in the modern era. This workshop will give you the tools and practical knowledge to build confidence in your change leadership capabilities to step up and lead across boundaries and position yourself for executive roles in the future.

You will walk away with a practical action plan for applying change leadership best practices to navigate a successful career and progress to senior levels.
