Executive coaching register

Background

Leadership competencies for Queensland describes what highly effective, everyday leadership looks like in the Queensland public sector.

The framework provides a common understanding of the foundations for success across all public sector roles, enabling a high-performing, innovative and future-focused sector capable of making a positive difference to all Queenslanders.

One of the mechanisms to support our senior leaders to lead and work in new ways is providing access to formal coaching arrangements.

The Public Service Commission will establish a register of experienced coaches who understand the complexities faced by senior executives. Coaches on the register are expected to have substantial executive coaching experience, including at the C-suite level (agency heads and deputy directors-general or equivalent).

Requirements

To be placed on the register, we would like you to submit a response about how you will meet the following requirements:

  • relevant individual coaching experience at the senior executive level (mandatory)
  • contact details of three senior executive referees you have coached (mandatory)
  • agreement to use the Queensland Government’s General Contract Conditions (PDF, 295 KB) for any coaching engagement (mandatory)
  • relevant experience coaching executive leadership teams (optional)

Review

The Public Service Commission will review each submission to ensure all requirements are met. This includes contacting your nominated referees to collect feedback about the coaching engagement via a short online survey.

Register use

The executive coaching register will be available to Queensland public sector employees via a secure link and be promoted across government through several communications channels.
