Executive Leadership in a Changing Environment (Brookings Institution-500922)
This program advances understanding of the range of competencies needed to lead today. Its aim is to help senior government executives achieve their full professional potential at the highest levels of public service.
Practical approaches to deal with the demands of traditional public administration are supplemented by opportunities to explore new complexities and to rediscover personal commitment to the ethos of democracy and the concept of public interest.
This is an increasingly globalized society, where the new form of governance is multi-sectored. Today's leaders must learn to develop networks to share what they know and strategies and capabilities to deal with the unknowable and ever-changing. This program offers insights into the roles of creativity and personal charisma in public governance and emphasizes the importance of trust, communication, collaboration and authenticity. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect upon personal values in relationship to organizational responsibilities and to explore strategies designed to deliver agencies fit for the future. This is both a grounding and an exhilarating experience.
