The Australian Leadership Index is a national survey that provides a comprehensive picture of leadership for the greater good in Australia. To better understand public beliefs about institutional leadership, as well as the key predictors of public perceptions of leadership, the Australian Leadership Index surveys 1,000 people across Australia on a quarterly basis. This report reflects the views of 4,000 Australians surveyed throughout 2020.

Specifically, this report presents findings about the Australian public’s perceptions and expectations of institutional leadership for the greater good and makes recommendations about what leaders can do to improve the quality of their institutional leadership.
