Local government leaders needed for study

Monash University is conducting a study on leadership authenticity in Australia and is inviting interested NSW councils to participate.

Seventeen councils are already taking part in the study but it is not too late for others to join. The Monash researchers are hoping to look at 1000 leaders in local government.

The study, one of the first of its kind to focus on local government, could assist councils with insights into leadership development, workforce planning, innovative thinking, making informed decisions and problem solving.

The benefits for participating councils inculde:

  • Gaining valuable strategic infomation to help plan leadership development more rigorously;
  • Identifying levels of leader contribution to employee engagement and creating a climate for innovation and ethical behaviour in employees; and
  • Contributing to advancing research underpinning Australian leadership development.

The research is conducted online, via a 15-20 minute questionnaire, followed by a 15-20 minute paper and pencil survey.

The information will be collated by Monash and a group report presented to participating councils. Individual reports will not be provided as the research is designed to assist organisations to devlop whole-of-group leadership interventions as a result of the study.

There is no cost to participants. A full Leadership Research Invitation Brief will be sent on request.
