The article analyzes the state of professionalization of public service personnel. It is determined that professional training of civil servants, able and ready to effectively solve the whole set of managerial tasks in the context of public administration reform in modern Ukraine, constantly increase their managerial potential and practical experience in a dynamically modernizing society is an urgent problem of public management science. Managerial culture is part of the structure of professional culture of civil servants and its actual functioning determines the art of management. According to the results of the analysis of professional activity of civil servants, currently in Ukraine there is a tendency to increase the number of managers who are insufficiently prepared for management activities, who have not formed a high level (so-called «patchwork») managerial culture. At the same time, a modern effective civil servant in the conditions of dynamic changes in many spheres of public life is a specialist focused on modern management priorities, who has the latest management technologies, capable of professional self-actualization and continuous improvement. The formation of a politically neutral, professional, honest, sensitive to the demands of citizens employee, as well as public managers with modern management knowledge, developed innovative worldview, able to act in conditions of uncertainty, is an important task. Socio-psychological factors of managerial activity related to taking into account the individual psychological characteristics of people and patterns of communication in social groups need to be taken into account. The development of a modern culture of governance and responsibility of managers at all levels for human resource management, strengthening the moral and spiritual capital of managers in the context of implementing new principles of civil service is impossible without solving the problem of developing managerial culture of civil servants. Effective development of creative self-realization of a civil servant’s personality is possible when it is provided with a solid legal basis and is carried out on the appropriate scientific basis. The generalized understanding of the requirements for the managerial culture of civil servants also does not fully correspond to the scientific understanding of managerial culture as a complex component.
