APS Leadership: Rising to the road ahead

An exploration of great APS leadership: what it looks like, how we nurture it, and how it helps us deliver.

Hear from PM&C Secretary Glyn Davis and a panel of our most senior APS leaders about what matters most on the road ahead, and what they want to see from leaders at all levels.

Speakers reflect on the leadership behaviours that helped the APS rise to the challenges of recent years, the role leaders will play in future APS reform, and how they navigate leadership themselves.

We look at what adaptive, systems leadership means in a modern APS, and how you can bring the ideas to life in your role.
