Comprehensive analysis of how perceptions of leadership are changing in response to events, over time, and across sectors and institutions.
After a reversal of trends in 2020, which saw an improvement in perceptions of leadership, leadership perceptions declined throughout 2021.
In the space of eight short weeks, the threat posed by COVID-19 and the sudden absence of partisanship from the political landscape ushered in a focus on leadership for the greater good, the likes of which we have not seen for years. Australians were surveyed between March 17 and May 6 to measure perceptions of leadership for the greater good during the first wave of the COVID-19 crisis.
Overall, our 2019 annual report findings show a significant gap between public perceptions and expectations across all indicators of leadership for the greater good across government, public, private and not for profit sectors. Australian institutions are not living up to the expectations of the general public.
