Public Sector Leadership Consortium

The Public Sector Leadership Consortium, a collaborative effort between the Center for Health Care Strategies, the Milbank Memorial Fund, and the National Association of Medicaid Directors, draws from the three organizations’ experiences to maximize its collective impact in supporting public leaders, particularly those in the health and human services fields and public leaders who are working to advance health policy and improve health outcomes.

An Introduction to the Framework for Public Sector Leadership

Public sector leaders are essential to economic stability of states and the health and well-being of their residents. They are responsible for administering billions of state and federal dollars, setting and managing strategic direction for public services, and navigating the complex web of state government and community relationships. Despite this critical role, there is scant investment in public sector leadership development.

This fact sheet outlines the Framework for Public Sector Leadership, which draws from both academic research and insights from leaders across the field, to serve as a guide for both public sector leaders and their teams, as well as rising leaders. This competencies-based framework was jointly developed by the Public Sector Leadership Consortium. It is built on the core belief that leadership does not necessarily result from an individual’s formal position, but rather one rising to the occasion as a leader, regardless of where they sit within an organization.
