Government leaders face increasing scrutiny fuelled by rise in public expectations for transparency and accountability. They need to respect public service cultures while increasingly adopting corporate disciplines of financial efficiency and client centricity.
Faced with complex and frequently shifting organisational agendas, government leaders must excel at motivating large teams with strategic aspirations that frame performance objectives in terms of social outcomes. High standards of ethics and governance skills must be matched by strong people skills to support effective engagement with stakeholders, community members and customers.
We acknowledge the outstanding contribution of Fisher Leadership during a critical recruitment activity to fill several senior leadership roles in our organisation. You displayed unwavering professionalism, diligence and patience throughout the process - from the advertisement of these positions, international search, interviews, to the completion of the final selection reports. It was a real pleasure to work with Fisher Leadership to rebuild our leadership team. We highly recommend their services.
