I notice that a number of people come to this blog using one of the above search phrases. I assume this is because they are writing an application for a government job. These are the five leadership capabilities used by both the Queensland State Government and the Australian Public Service.

To find more information about these capabilities, you can visit the Integrated Leadership System (ILS) web page. You will find information about what behaviours are expected at EL1, EL2, SES1, SES2 and SES3 levels. Find the pages that discuss ‘behavioural indicators’ to get ideas on what experiences you have had to prove your demonstration of these five capabilities.

For example , for ‘Shapes Strategic Thinking’ – Can you provide an example of where you have established the strategic goals for a business unit? communicated the links between government policy, organisational goals and the work of a unit? built a shared sense of purpose and direction? focused on the future and pursued strategic alignment of action within a business unit? identified critical information gaps?……..

If you are applying for APS 1-6 roles there is a similar ILS publication. The capabilities are slightly different: Supports Strategic Direction, Achieves Results, Supports Productive Working Relationships, Displays Personal Drive and Integrity, and Communicates with Influence.

The Integrated Leadership System  is an excellent tool to assist you to write your application, prepare for interview, and also to assess your learning and development needs.
