Slack Resources in Australia?

Challenges:

  • Australia runs a lean economy
    • few slack resources within the public or private sectors
  • The ‘target and audit’ culture of government allows little room for slack resources or ‘non core’ business
  • Absence of clear, articulated pathways for the emergence of leaders locally and regionally
    • Nature of Australian Federalism an impediment

Implications

    • Leadership as a goal, a priority
  • Create pathways for leadership
  • Accept the leadership role of government agencies and staff
  • Celebrate and reward leadership and its achievements
