We like to think the DNA of councils was formed when neighbours got together to solve common problems.
Generations later, councils provide a wide range of services to much larger populations.
Globally and locally, our growing human population brings new challenges.
We find ourselves in a world that seems to be moving at a rate of knots: while there are more and more of us with more and more technology, our environment is changing and – if we scratch beneath the surface – we are discovering there are fewer resources and less energy available to meet those challenges.
Past certainties are falling away. Communities and their leaders are facing a more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (“VUCA”) future.
Are leaders in local government – at any level – ready to guide their teams and communities through these new challenges?
At Ptok Consulting, we like to work with local government leaders – at all levels – who are open to new ideas. We like to work with people who are on the lookout for new insights about themselves, their teams, their organisations and community.
Greg's extensive knowledge .... together with his people skills, diligence and reliability, have earned him the absolute respect of staff and elected officials alike at Council.JOHN MCKEE, GENERAL MANAGER, KU-RING-GAI COUNCIL
