As we embark on delivering Public Value in a dynamic and rapidly changing time, the single factor that can help us make decisions is our Purpose. Our Purpose is a shared recognition of the reason why we exist—it is the context that determines whether a decision is the right one to make at any particular time.
When Purpose appeals to your intrinsic motivation and aligns with your values, it will fuel your success. As executives and senior managers, when we are aligned with our values on a daily basis, we have more energy and feel more fulfilled because we are leading from what’s important to us.
This dynamic forum engaged senior leaders across the Public Sector to share their understanding of how our values give us our sense of Purpose. It also explored and defined how we can come together to lead the way to make South Australia thrive and continue to build a modern Public Sector. This was the first of a number of forums to be held with managers focusing on embedding the Public Sector values.
The Commissioner for Public Sector Employment Erma Ranieri emceed the forum.
