The Leadership Development Centre works with chief executives and the State Services Commissioner developing high performing leadership for the New Zealand public sector. Read more about LDC ...
A significant part of LDC’s leadership development is our focus on individual development planning. Such planning is important in that it helps our members access the right career development tailored to their specific needs, as well as the needs of their agency and the wider sector.
This new toolkit provides an overview of how to create an individual development plan (IDP). It outlines both the individual’s and their manager’s roles in the development process and includes starter templates, checklists for development planning and a summary of research around leading development planning practices.
The IDP toolkit will be beneficial for leaders at all levels. This includes chief executives with the expectations and priority focus in their role of the development of people and leaders.
Three leaders, in three different roles from central and regional agencies − part of a 16-strong group of public sector developing leaders − graduated from LDC’s Leadership in Practice (LiP) programme in February 2014. They took time out recently to talk to LDC about their time on LiP and the changes it helped them make in their leadership roles.
LDC has a vacancy for a full time Programme and Business Support position. This role will support the delivery of key programmes and services to LDC clients and provide general administrative support to the business. From maintaining our online assessment tool and liaising with facilitators, presenters and participants through to answering the main office telephone, this varied role will keep you on your toes. The work has a strong service delivery and customer focus and involves active participation in the day to day work of the LDC and supporting the whole team.
LDC is pleased to announce a new annual scholarship for the Leadership in Practice programme − LDC’s highly regarded nine-month leadership development programme for functional and/or people leaders who have experience managing others and are ready to expand from an operational to a strategic perspective.
Find out more about the Leadership in Practice programme, the scholarship and how to apply.
The State Services Commission sponsors the annual Ria McBride Public Service Management Award. Worth $15,000, the award is aimed at women who have not had the opportunity to pursue tertiary study yet demonstrate personal fortitude and leadership potential. They may be hindered from progressing in their leadership contribution to the Public Service due to their lack of qualifications.
If you know of anyone in your team or agency who could benefit from this opportunity, please direct them to the State Services Commission website. You can also find more information on the New Horizons Women Trust website. Applications close 30 April 2014.
