The Public Sector Consortium provides public sector leaders with actionable tools that create and sustain high-performing public organizations. More than just a Band-Aid or interim consultancy, our work reshapes the way public leaders approach governance and the provision of public services.
With a faculty of renowned subject-matter experts and public sector practitioners, our programs are designed for cross-agency learning and communication, providing a more holistic learning environment and impactful outcomes. Working with public sector leaders at the federal, state, and local levels as well as in public education, we teach sustainable leadership practices that:
- Balance operational demands with learning and innovation
- Support integrative versus additive approaches to societal needs
- Honor a systems approach
- Promote interdependent leadership practices
- Provide accountability and measurable results
- Balance the complexity of the work with achieving outcomes
Democracies flourish only when nurtured by healthy and competent civil service. Strong public institutions that positively affect the quality of our daily lives depend on excellent leadership at all levels. To facilitate the development of great leaders, the Public Sector Consortium’s system of learning includes Formal Learning Programs, a Community of Practice, Onsite Consulting, and Coaching Services.

As the end of the year approaches we are reflecting on the tenth anniversary of President Obama’s receipt of the Nobel Peace prize and his lecture on war and peace. We are also anticipating a year that will be filled with public discussions about national challenges and town halls dedicated to gatherings of citizens to meet with candidates as they prepare to cast their ballots. After watching Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize lecture you may want to read The Leadership Dilemma in a Democratic Society (PDF).
Created by members of the Public Sector Consortium, the systems maps in the report take multiple looks at the systemic structures which drive our ability to lead as public leaders. The Leadership Dilemma in a Democratic Society report reveals some of the systems Obama alludes to in his peace prize lecture and the challenges still facing public leadership.
