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 ...
LDC’s 2012/13 Annual Report is now available.
The 2012/13 year has been highly productive for LDC as we implemented the 2012–14 business strategy and directed our efforts towards strengthening and supporting the New Zealand public sector leadership system.
A key focus of 2012/13 was for LDC to work with chief executives and the State Services Commission on initiatives to deliver a whole-of-system approach to senior leadership development and succession planning across the New Zealand public sector, including career boards. One of our great values is the strong ancillary networks we have helped establish across the Public Service through membership with our organisation.
You can download LDC’s 2012/13 Annual Report from our website.
Two Leadership Development Programmes (LDPs) will begin in February and May 2014 respectively.
LDP is an 18- to 24-month programme that develops leaders to become authentic and influential in their approach and to achieve superior results through their leadership of others. LDC works with participants to identify and meet individual, agency and system learning needs. LDP includes residentials, regular Action Learning Groups, and chief executive informal conversations.
Participants will have been identified by their chief executives as being proven high performers across multiple stakeholders, including Ministers, with strong potential to deliver successfully in larger, more complex roles. Participants might be in large complex tier 3 or smaller tier 2 roles, or could be new to a tier 2 role.
LDP participants benefit from being part of a wider network of public sector senior leaders as they may be drawn from organisations across the public sector, not only those agencies currently engaged with the career boards.
For further information on the LDP, see the Advanced Leadership Programmes page on our website. You can also read the attached flyer (PDF, 966 KB)
In May this year, Scott Gallacher, one of the Deputy Director-Generals for Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI), accepted a three-week experiential learning stint with the Department of Conservation (DoC) as Acting Director-General.
Just two months later, he would get another opportunity to experience tier one leadership first-hand when asked to stand in for outgoing MPI Director-General Wayne McNee.
Find out what Scott had to say about his experiences. What have they meant to him personally and professionally? What difference do experiential learning opportunities like these really make?
If you are moving up the career ladder or looking to shift into a broader or more complex role, you will find our new toolkit 'Transitioning to a new role' really valuable.
When moving into another role, your performance, successes and failures become more obvious and more critical. And, as you advance into a new leadership role, you need to move quickly to consolidate your position and ensure the success of yourself, your team and the organisation as a whole. This toolkit will help you transition smoothly and effectively into any new role. The toolkit includes guidelines for those transitioning into a chief executive role.
