This program is designed exclusively to equip and support executives in Local Government, including Chief Executive Officers and Directors to expand and develop their skills and knowledge to assist them to become confident and capable leaders in the Local Government sector.

The program content has been developed for and by senior executives, to ensure it addresses the particular nature and challenges of leadership in Local Government. It was informed by the results of LGPro's CEO Development Survey undertaken by an independent research organisation to examine the behaviours and attitudes of current and former Local Government CEOs and potential CEOs and to determine the skills, traits, knowledge and experience required to be a successful Local Government executive.
