Discover how to achieve savings and boost performance in your public sector organisation despite budget cuts!
The good news is that with strong managerial skills and leadership capability, these challenges can be overcome – resulting in a highly motivated workforce that are able to deliver the changes and performance improvements required.
The bad news however is that most public sector executives and managers do not have the necessary leadership and managerial skills to deliver ‘more for less’ in these challenging times.
Despite pockets of excellence, too few public sector line managers and supervisors across the public sector as a whole have the necessary management skills to get the most out of their staff, to manage conflict, absence and performance, and to ensure people are coached and developed on the job to improve service delivery at the sharp end.- CIPD
Significant skills gaps have been reported both in senior and middle managers in a number of areas including change management, performance management and business process improvement. The top three strategic priorities are Organisational Development, Leadership Development and Skills Development. These are crucial to improving workforce performance in local government.

Line managers and supervisors in particular lack the people management skills that will be necessary to get more out of their staff and build the kind of team spirit that can see organisations through dark days. CIPD
Public sector chief executives and managers believe they lack the skills needed to deliver services when funding cuts start impacting in 2010 and beyond. Only 16% of managers said their organisations had the resources to manage a reduced budget in 2010. The Hays Public Services Leadership Survey
As a previous senior manager in a London council, I understand the challenges facing public sector organisations and the benefits of executive coaching in transforming performance.
“When budgets are tightened, it is a relatively inexpensive way to develop staff and it also has the benefit of being tailored to an organisation’s specific needs. As well as this, coaching has great scope to improve employee engagement, empower people and boost morale at a time of great uncertainty.” CIPD
