About the program


The program content has been developed for and by senior executives to ensure it addresses the particular nature and challenges of leadership in Local Government. It was informed by the results of an LGPro CEO Development Survey undertaken by an independent research organisation to examine the behaviours and attitudes of current and former Local Government CEOs and potential CEOs and to determine the skills, traits, knowledge and experience required to be a successful Local Government executive.
