Public entrepreneurship: new leaders with a public heart

A business approach within the public domain

Public entrepreneurship: new leaders with a public heart

Public, Care & Education: socially relevant sectors that differ significantly from each other and are in themselves relatively heterogeneous. But no matter how great the differences, Ebbinge sees major similarities, especially in the area of leadership.

We support public entrepreneurship. Leaders who represent the public cause and the collective, yet also bring the strength and expertise of entrepreneurship to the table and can see the public sector through an entrepreneurial lens. Interestingly, the social relevance of the collective and the interest in it is growing again. The trust in leadership within the public domain, however, could stand improvement and that is why new leadership is crucial. Based on that notion, Ebbinge recognises the strength and the importance of a well-run public sector.

‘Ebbinge can have a broader impact than just appointing people.’

In the past, Niels has himself worked in the public domain. Now, he searches for people to fill top positions in that same domain. The video shows you how Niels is helping to generate a broad impact.

A complete portfolio
For Public, Care & Education, we not only work from our social, public heart. It is about our vision of Public Entrepreneurship and our commitment and involvement regarding specific developments in the sector that we publish articles regularly. In these sectors, we offer a complete portfolio: search, interim, executive development and training courses. We have developed specific training courses for the Public Sector, with courses for the Civil Service (the New Style Supervision course), the Care sector ( the New Style Supervision in Care and New Leadership in Care courses) and the course for New Style Supervision for Cultural institutions and Charity organisations.

True Leadership
Wherever possible and relevant, Ebbinge searches for the ‘other profile’, for diversity: the public entrepreneur, with a more business-oriented profile, the new(er) generation, the leader from outside the sector, the New Style supervisor.  But we never lose sight of the need for genuine involvement and commitment candidates have regarding the public cause and the sector and organisation in question.

Our team
In our team Public, Care & Education, we are driven and experienced professionals with a clear understanding of what is required in these sectors in terms of leadership, management and supervision. We know the market segment well and many Ebbinge professionals have experience with (leading or supervisory positions within) these sectors.
