Management in Action
Build teams, develop skills, achieve results

For new and existing managers, Management in Action (MiA) has been designed to give a thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge required to become a confident and effective people leader in the New Zealand public service. The programme comprises three modules and draws on a unique blend of theory, research, leading practices and participant experience. 

There are three two-day workshops, online modules, key theories, and Action Learning Groups held over six months to support translating learning into the workplace. Offered as a cross-agency programme, participants will also benefit from collaborating across the public sector and learning about others' roles and challenges.

New people leader development: Development and action guides

New people leaders can also access development and action guides, which are part of a new range of development options available to agencies and their new people leaders. The guides offer self-paced learning for new people leaders to work through seven development priorities: Mindset, Connect, Purpose, Achieve, Feedback, Develop, Processes.

Download the development and action guides from our website.

If you have further questions about new people leader development, please contact your agency HR lead.
