Event description

Description

This programme is the first in a CLGdotTV series under the Leaders and Leadership banner, curated and facilitated by professional leadership coach and facilitator Steve Cliff of Empowering You in association with senior advisors and leaders from the Local Government Association (LGA).

Making Councils an Attractive Place to Work will discuss solutions to the growing skills gaps in key professions in local government, including IT/digital, social care and legal (to name a few that have also come up in recent CLGdotTV discussions). How do councils successfully attract, develop and retain talent? What is the employee value proposition? How do councils compete with the private sector for the best talent? What can leaders do to enhance the employee experience and create loyal, motivated and engaged teams?

Steve will chair, and be joined by Jamie Saddler, who is National Apprenticeships Advisor, LGA and Grace Abel, a recent graduate, also with the LGA.

The Leaders and Leadership series

What are the biggest challenges for leaders in the public sector as we move into the next decade? Technology and data growth continues to drive an uncertain, fast-changing and complex work-place and trends in robotics and AI are shifting employees away from routine and task-based activities. This is creating an opportunity for organisations to focus on the essential human skills needed for effective leadership: communication, empathy and trust. At the same time councils face a huge challenge in both retaining and recruiting talented people. This series will explore some of the hot topics that face leaders at all levels in public sector organisations; sharing experience from senior leaders and experts and introducing fresh perspectives from emerging leaders. We will focus on how people can be empowered to lead change and transformation, focusing on the elusive obstacle/opportunity of the culture of an organisation.

Steve Cliff is a professional leadership coach and facilitator, with 6 years of experience designing and delivering talent development programmes, primarily in the public sector. He is passionate about developing leadership at all levels, especially with people who want to make a bigger difference in their communities and organisations. Empowering You is focused on enabling sustained changes in leadership behaviours, through their blended learning programmes of experiential workshops with personalised coaching and mentoring.
