Lunchtime Briefing with Carol Bernard CBE, Executive Director, Civil Service Line Management Capability, Government People Group

Author WIG Date 26 Sep 2023

We are delighted to welcome Carol Bernard, as she shares insights into the work her team is doing to boost line management capability across the Civil Service.


Collaborative leadership and organisational development

How do you define line management; what is expected of managers; and how can organisations develop excellent line management capabilities? These are just some of the questions that Carol’s team has addressed through extensive research across the Civil Service, and collaboration with the wider public and private sectors.

With line managers seen as the arteries of an organisation, through which you feed the lifeblood of the business, it is vital that managers have the necessary skill set to enable growth whilst providing essential support to their teams.

By joining us for this special lunchtime briefing, you will:

  • Understand how Carol’s team are developing standards for line managers across the Civil Service
  • Discover key learnings from the lived-experience of line managers across the Civil Service, and how these are helping to shape the Government People Group's progamme
  • Explore the important things that organisations can do to enable and support excellent line management
