The recent economic crisis has raised concern about a degeneration of the values of our leaders, where greed and self-interest can often overshadow shared values. The values of public sector leaders have also been brought into question: the introduction of New Public Management has left a lasting legacy that has not been wholly positive.
This seminar will explore the importance of values within the context of public leadership, through a comparative literature review of public leadership and research conducted across a range of UK public sector organisations. A new public leadership model will be presented based on what is described as a ‘20P Public Leadership Model’, supported by values based standards that can be shown to have a positive impact on the development of appropriate public leadership behaviours.
It will be suggested that we need to rediscover the lost values of leadership (drawing on work in the 1950s from Herbert Simon and Philip Selznick), the importance of a core ideology Collins and Porras, 1994) and the creation and demonstration of public value (Moore 1995).
