HOW IS YOUR POLITICAL ACUMEN?:
Welcome to Inside Public Sector Leadership, a live, on-line mentorship program designed to explore the unwritten protocols and grey areas that leaders in today’s public service need to navigate in an environment of increasingly centralized decision making, a stronger political service, permanent campaigning, big data and a 24/7 news cycle.
This inter-active course brings attention to these topics through stories of experience told by experts who have been there - those leaders who have previously held senior bureaucratic roles or elected office in provincial and federal governments in Canada.
Our expert panelists will answer audience questions and offer their perspectives on how to approach the challenges you face to succeed and advance in your career. Watch the live panels and have access to audio/visual recordings to review afterwards as many times as you like. We look forward to seeing you this spring for an all new session of Inside Public Sector Leadership.
