    What role will you play in the future of local government?

    With a complex and continuously evolving sector, it is now more essential than ever that local government is prepared for the future. New services, new skills, local and global impacts and the ever-changing digital landscape have fundamentally changed expectations of both the nature and delivery of services.

    On completion of this program, participants will be able to:

    • Make progress on complex problems in an agile way
    • Navigate rapidly changing and evolving environments
    • Collaborate and work more effectively with different stakeholder groups
    • Make better decisions in uncertain, complex and ambiguous situations
    • Manage their energy to best serve their communities
    • See and consider multiple perspectives
    • Be more conscious of what is personally holding them back from delivering to their full potential

    This program is for accomplished Executives (Chief Executive Officers, Directors and General Managers and other Senior Leaders) in regional and metropolitan councils and subsidiaries who are seeking to expand their thinking and leadership impact.

    In the local government environment, leaders and professionals are required to balance the needs of upholding compliance and regulation (e.g. saying “no”, or issuing an expiation notice), while balancing the expectations of delivering a great customer experience.

    This course enables you to identify the dynamics at play where there is tension between needing to meet compliance requirements, meeting strategic objectives and maintaining strong customer relations within the community. You’ll learn the approaches, skills and behaviours that you can use on a daily basis to navigate this situation and be known for providing excellent customer service and improved performance, while meeting required levels of regulation.

    Course delivery includes two live sessions via Zoom, as well as video content and exercises prior to the live virtual classroom sessions.
