Agency Leadership and the Changing Workplace
This Agency Senate Report is taken from the responses of the Agency Senate to the senate survey for October 2021.
We asked Senators about the pressures on agency leaders.
We gave the following strong statement, a perspective on the topic that might commonly be expressed by an agency leader, the kind of thing you might hear in conversation with peers talking about trends or strategic positions.
Expectations of and pressures on agency leaders are reaching unprecedented levels, trying to sustain their business in very challenging times that predate the pandemic. Leadership fatigue is widespread, and many agency leaders are suffering burnout.
We then asked them for their opinion on the statement, and to express their agreement on a scale from strongly agree to strongly disagree.
