Leadership and decision making in times of adversity: insights from leading practitioners

The National Security College is a joint initiative of the Commonwealth Government and The Australian National University.

Session Overview

During times of adversity, strong leadership and robust decision making is key. Australia’s bushfire crisis and now the COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us how quickly the landscape can change and adversity can arise. It has also brought into sharp focus the importance of leadership and decision making, not just in government but across the public service and the community more broadly, where resilience, adaptability, communication and engagement have taken on unprecedented salience.

Hear from Jane Halton AO PSM and Mark Crosweller AFSM on how they have navigated uncertainty during their careers in the national security community. Take away tips and insights on leading and making decisions in our challenging strategic environment.   

Participants will leave the program with:

  1. Practical tips and insights from highly experienced experts on leading and decision making in times of crisis and adversity;
  2. A clearer sense of why exceptional leadership is key in our current and future strategic national security environment. 

Who should attend

Current or emerging decision makers at all levels, or those responsible for constructing policy advice for decision makers.
