Keep learning during COVID-19

The Queensland Government’s face-to-face leadership development offerings, delivered by the Public Service Commission (PSC), have been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 health pandemic and public health directions around social distancing. The PSC is working with service providers for the Executive Masters of Public Administration, People matters leadership programs and the Public Sector Management Program to move their delivery to online learning.

In the meantime, we encourage all Queensland public sector leaders to continue their leadership development during these unprecedented times and offer a range of resources that can help. Understanding your strengths as well as your development needs is an important starting point before engaging in any development. Two options for assessment are:

After you complete your assessment, set yourself a SMART development goal and write it down and track your progress, formally or informally.

These assessment tools and resources support your development as a leader, through the sector’s Leadership competencies for Queensland, which describes what highly effective, everyday leadership looks like in the sector. It also gives a common understanding of the foundations for success across all leadership roles into the future.

Also to support your leadership development, you can access free online courses and resources which align to the dimensions of vision, results and accountability in the sector’s Leadership competencies for Queensland.
