Due to new strategic directions and ongoing transformational change occurring within the Victorian 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. This is particularly at the VPS 5-6 banded level, which increasingly requires greater strategic awareness and effective engagement with senior leadership.
Aimed at VPS 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 VPS 5-6 level management. It will explore the core attributes required for successful leadership within the Victorian 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 VPS 5-6 level management leaders to perform at a higher level and to reach their full leadership potential.
