Manager of managers profile
Managers of managers are expected to demonstrate leadership in how they manage their team and influence their performance – as leaders of other leaders they are key to delivering results across the State Services. Our new approach to leadership development will continue to see managers of managers supported by their agencies to further their career.
Stepping up requires managers of managers to actively think about their aspirations, including what experience and exposure to different roles they need. Those aspiring to become senior leaders will benefit from a mentor and should strive to develop the required competencies for senior leaders.
The State Services Leadership Success Profile (LSP) specifies the competencies needed by our leaders to deliver results in today’s challenging and complex environment. The competencies we’re looking for in managers of managers fit with these.
- Deliver results through self
- Deliver results through people
- Deliver results through vision
- Deliver results through execution
