IPANZ and ANZSOG are partnering to explore issues at the political administrative interface. The series - Ministers and officials: Getting the relationship right - kicked off last year with an event where Rt Hon Bill English, Wayne Eagleson, Peter Mersi and (now) Deputy Prime Minister Carmel Sepuloni discussed what makes for good relationships between ministers and officials. A critical component identified in last year’s session was the need for officials to be politically savvy. But what is ‘political savvy’ or ‘political nous’ and how do you develop it? How can officials understand the politics without getting involved in the politics? This joint IPANZ/ANZSOG event will delve into this vital topic with a panel well versed in the relationship between politicians and officials.

Apologies. I have been reflecting recently on what it means to apologise as a public servant leader. Apologising for things that happen under your watch has always seemed very straight forward to me. As the leader of an organisation, you take the good with the bad. If you are prepared to take credit for the fantastic things your organisation delivers day in and day out under your leadership but without your direct involvement, you must also be prepared to own the mistakes, which again you may have had no direct involvement in. Own it, fix it, learn from it. Sometimes owning it, being accountable, means stepping away and allowing the organisation to fix and learn under a new leader.
