Due to new strategic directions and ongoing transformational change occurring within the Australian Public Service, there is now an enhanced focus and greater need for more effective leadership performance across all levels. Public Sector leaders are now required to undertake work of a more complex nature, operating in a more autonomous and strategic manner. As such, emerging leaders eager to take their career to the next level must be better equipped with the appropriate tools and strategies in order to achieve success.

Aimed at APS 5-6 level officers and management, this two day workshop will provide an opportunity to advance core skills and explore the emerging leadership capabilities required for effective APS 5-6 level management. It will explore the core attributes required for successful leadership within the Australian Public Service and will delve into the practical strategies relating to leading productive teams, improve decision making, apply strategic management thinking and develop key skills of stakeholder engagement and communication. These areas are of increasing importance for APS 5-6 level management leaders to perform at a higher level and to reach their full leadership potential.

This interactive workshop will provide participants with a unique professional development opportunity to enhance and refine a solid toolkit in order to achieve leadership goals. It is ideal for career driven individuals who aim to unlock their potential advance their career within the Australian Public Service.
