Developing Future Public Service Leaders for Aotearoa New Zealand
Keywords:Leadership, Public Service, Covid-19, Public Trust
The New Zealand public service performs comparatively very well internationally and this has been evident during the global Covid-19
pandemic. The public service will need strong and adaptable leadership in future to respond effectively to significant global challenges and threats to public trust, and the need for better public policy responses to extant ‘wicked’ problems. The pandemic response in New Zealand and internationally provides strong pointers as to what New Zealand should do to develop public service leaders for the future.
