Commonwealth Government - Fisher Leadership
Commonwealth Government

Inspiring efficiency in pursuit of outcomes.

The Australian Public Service (APS) is changing and evolving as the Commonwealth Government becomes increasing forensic about its allocation of funding. Faced with increasing workload and diminishing resources, operating environments in government entities have necessarily become more lean and innovative. The increasing emphasis on lateral thinking and contemporary business practices within the APS presents many exciting challenges for the public service leaders of today and tomorrow.

Finding and developing exceptional leaders for this innovation-focussed environment means thinking laterally: looking outside the public service to attract leaders with a broader diversity of experience, backgrounds and skills; developing leadership pipelines that recognise and reward innovative thinking and a capacity to inspire efficiency in pursuit of excellence.

We acknowledge the outstanding contribution of Fisher Leadership during a critical recruitment activity to fill several senior leadership roles in our organisation.

It was a real pleasure to work with Fisher Leadership to rebuild our leadership team. We highly recommend their services.
