Program Overview

Empowered Governance Program

Leadership Development for Experienced Managers

The Empowered Governance program is designed to equip young managers in public service to lead well in a complex world. Managers in government agencies need a range of new skill sets and competencies to excel and grow. The Program supports experienced public officers during a critical stage in their careers in the government.

Mid-career public sector managers and policymakers are under constant pressure to deliver high-quality solutions to complex socio-economic problems, while fulfilling the expectations of their leaders and managing the daily work of their teams and staff. What are the tools and frameworks available for decision-making in such a context? How can managers and policymakers better lead their teams to design, deliver, and communicate these solutions?

The program will examine the challenges of policymaking past and present, and discuss strategies for the future. Through case studies and leadership coaching, the course will build strong management skills, including managing teams and performance, as well as building effective partnerships across the public, people, and private sectors.

This program is designed for leaders and managers with about 5 to 9 years of government service. Participants with supervisory responsibilities are preferred, but this is not a requirement.
