Christine Georgiadis

People and Performance Advisor


With over ten years working with local government in recruitment, individual and team coaching and development, and in facilitating on-site employee engagement surveys, Chris has a thorough understanding of the local government environment.

Chris has successfully recruited many roles into local government at the Director, Manager and coordinator levels across all directorates.  Most recent recruitments include Hornsby Shire Council, Strathfield Council, Glen Innes Severn Council, NSROC, Blacktown City Council, Lismore City Council, Byron Shire Council and West Tamar Council.

As an advocate for proactive organisational development and building a positive culture, Chris gained accreditation in Hogan Psychometric Profiling in 2015 and is an expert in the analysis and interpretation of Hogan assessments, in determining the strengths and development areas of candidates for senior roles; providing individual coaching; in determining the culture individuals within a team create, and in cultivating a desire by teams to become higher performing — through understanding individual and team behaviours and what the effects these have on team and organisational outcomes.

Many Councils utilise Chris’ services with their recruitment with the use of the Hogan Personality Profiling, allowing the line manager to gain insight into the team dynamics and how they may function together to ensure the right fit for the team and organisation.

Chris also has expertise in facilitating the implementation of an employee engagement survey and in analysing the survey results results, linking these outcomes back to the organisation’s performance and in providing detailed feedback and advice to clients. Chris has presented findings and facilitated workshops with the Councillor governing body, Executive Teams, Directorates/Business Units and whole of organisations to allow all stakeholders to be aware of and take responsibility for initiatives to improve the workplace environment, employee capability and community sentiments.

Chris’s strong interpersonal skills and engaging style provides a comfort level for clients by offering a platform for open and honest discussions. Chris’s ability to gather information, provide objective advice, and connect and converse with people at all levels is her strength – from Mayors, Councillors, Board members, CEOs and senior staff to the engine room of organisations.
