NLA leadership project

Paul Stewart and Nicole Hinton, National Library of Australia

Thursday 18 September 2014 – Concurrent session 23, 2:10pm to 2:25pm


The National Library of Australia has developed a Leadership Capability Model (LCM) tailored to its current needs as anticipated over the next several years.  This Model uses four pillars to unpack what leadership means in the Library’s context – having regard to the need to create sustainability of operations in the future while recognising the every tightening budget constraints of publicly funded organisations.

The Library’s LCM is supported by a Leadership Resource Kit that translates the big concepts into meaningful action for staff and senior managers.  It is presented as a self-reflective development tool without the discomfort that may attach to anointing “talent”.  It is anticipated that the LCM will eventually inform other significant people management initiatives including: training and development; recruitment and selection; and performance management.
