Chisholm’s Leadership Capability Framework provides a structured and comprehensive approach to developing, assessing, and enhancing the skills and behaviours of our leaders and to guarantee that our leaders demonstrate consistency in those capabilities required to accomplish our present and future objectives.

The Framework has been constructed with careful consideration of Chisholm’s strategic objectives and pillars, and business area plans. It sets out the skills and behaviours that we wish to be visible in all Chisholm Leaders, through presenting our capability expectations.

The Framework is structured into five categories, with six capabilities falling under each category. These capabilities are categorised across four levels: Foundational, Applied, Accomplished, and Leading. While we expect all leaders at Chisholm to have capability levels within the Applied, Accomplished, and Leading areas, the Framework provides guidance for workforce planning and professional development tailored to individual leadership levels.

Recruitment resources

Each leader’s position description outlines the current capabilities that best align to the position’s business plans and focus for a particular year, and the expected levels of each.
