Service 1: Public sector leadership

In this section


Effective leadership is crucial for the stewardship of the sector and the delivery of essential services to the community, particularly in times of significant change. The Commission is committed to building the leadership capability and expertise of the public sector workforce to ensure it is suitably skilled for the future. Our capacity-building initiatives relate broadly to leadership, specialist capability, diversity and inclusion, and stakeholder engagement. 

In 2016/17, we placed a renewed focus on strengthening the sector’s leadership, with the development and release of our Chief Executive Officer (CEO) success profile and accompanying measurement guidelines. Our leadership development programs continue to build leaders at all levels. 

We have also continued to support key occupational groups including the ‘C suite’—Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs), Chief Finance Officers (CFOs), Chief Information Officers (CIOs)—and senior integrity leaders.

Diversity and inclusion remains a key priority as we support public authorities to implement strategies and mechanisms for reducing structural, cultural and process barriers to the employment of people from diverse groups.

To ensure we continue creating opportunities for collaboration, innovation and a shared understanding among our stakeholders, we progressed a tailored approach to our local, national and international engagement.
