Building Trust at the Beginning of a New Leadership Role: The Role of Learning and Collaboration

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The nature of public sector management and leadership is changing. To address whole-of-government and whole-of-society challenges, public sector organizations are exploring more collaborative forms of leadership (Alford and Hughes, 2008; Getha-Taylor, 2008). Leadership, particularly at senior levels, is becoming more about influencing across boundaries, taking broader and more multiple perspectives and about recognizing and integrating complexity (Hooijberg and Schneider, 2001; Karp and Helgø, 2008). And in public organizations in particular, there are increasing demands for transparency and high ethical standards from leaders.
