EPISODE #70 | 'RISING TO THE ROAD AHEAD' WITH PROFESSOR GLYN DAVIS AC, DAVID FREDERICKS PSM, NATALIE JAMES AND PETER WOOLCOTT AO

A well-functioning public service relies on good leaders with the right skills and attributes. The recently published Charter of Leadership Behaviours outlines the types of positive behaviours that APS leaders should exhibit. So, what does great APS leadership look like? How can we nurture it and how does it help us deliver great outcomes?
 
In this episode, Professor Glyn Davis AC, Secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, delivers a keynote address about great APS leadership. It was followed by a conversation with David Fredericks PSM, Secretary of the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, Natalie James, Secretary of the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations, and Peter Woolcott AO, the Australian Public Service Commissioner.

This episode has been adapted from an event held on 6 September 2022. The discussion was facilitated by Carmel McGregor PSM FIPAA, Adjunct Professor and Academic Fellow at the University of Canberra.

Discussed in this episode:

  • Leadership behaviours that have helped the APS rise to the challenges of recent years.
  • Navigating leadership challenges in future APS reform.
  • How to bring adaptive systems leadership to life.
