Mastering Management

Mastering Management builds the capacity and confidence of Managers in Local Government who face the challenge of working in an organisational role that is often more complex, ambiguous and dynamic than that experienced by Managers in other sectors.

Managers from across many areas in the sector including Corporate Services and Human Resources, plus leading experts from outside the sector, had significant input into developing the program.

About the program

Mastering Management targets new and experienced Managers who want to improve their managerial competencies so they can be the best they can be.

The overriding aim of the program is to support Managers in making a real transition in their thinking and actions so that they can positively impact their teams, their organisations and the sector.

Program objectives

The program aims to assist participants to:

Develop personal excellence
Develop their staff  
Manage in Local Government
