LEADERSHIP DURING COVID-19
ALI Annual report 2019
Quarterly reports provide a timely assessment of current events and how perceptions of leadership change in response.
Since we started tracking public perceptions of leadership for the greater good, the Australian Leadership Index has never recorded a positive ALI score. During the COVID-19 pandemic, public perceptions have changed dramatically, shifting the ALI score from -13 in March 2020 to +8 in June 2020.
The March 2020 quarterly report comes at the end of the bushfire crisis of 2019/2020 and the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which was in its infancy at the time of data collection. This quarterly report describes the key findings from the March 2020 Australian Leadership Index.

In contrast to the government’s instrumental view of education, with its focus on producing “job-ready graduates”, the public now takes a wider view of education as a public good. Drawing on nationally representative surveys from Sept 2018 – Sept 2020, we statistically modelled how nine different factors have influenced public perceptions of leadership in education institutions.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic worsened in Australia in March, public perceptions of the federal and state governments were consistently poor. Political leaders were seen to be serving themselves and other vested interests, rather than the public interest. However, since the start of the pandemic and the establishment of the National Cabinet in March, this has begun to change.
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.
