Inspiring leadership for the greater good.
Leadership trending positively
In 2020, COVID-19 created a strong focus on leadership, placing increasing pressure on leaders to make decisions for the public interest, particularly at federal and state government level.
Leadership gaps still substantial
Large gaps still exist between public expectations and perceptions, particularly on ethicality, responsiveness to society, social outcomes and accountability; the key drivers of leadership.
Institution performance varies
A majority believe institutions demonstrated improved leadership, with charities, health, education, justice, small business, federal and state governments the best performers.
Subgroup differences matter
More knowledge of a sector correlated with higher ratings. Small businesses rated more favourably than large. Males and females rate government and public institutions differently.
