Senior Executive Fundamentals (SEF) is a key resource for senior executives in the NSW government sector.
The NSW Government is working to deliver better outcomes, infrastructure and services for the 7.8 million citizens of NSW. Effective leadership is essential to our success, and the NSW Government is focused on attracting and developing world-class leaders.
SEF provides key information to help make sure you 'survive and thrive' in the first 12 to 18 months of your employment as a senior executive. It is also an enduring reference guide for you throughout your career.
Our goal is for new senior executives to review the topics in Getting Started before starting in their assigned role, then come back to SEF after four weeks and continue to review the topics over the next 12 to 18 months, in whatever order is relevant to their individual priorities.
