IOG launches 3rd Executive Leadership cohort

The IOG's 3rd ELP cohort.

The IOG’s 3rd ELP cohort.

The new IOG Executive Leadership Program has been launched with 15 participants from the federal and Ontario governments.

This year-long program is for committed public service executives at the director level who want to hone their abilities to meet the on-going challenges of a fast-paced working environment and the transformative world of deficit reduction.

Through self-reflection, observation, practice, and feedback, participants will develop key leadership skills to improve resilience, to manage change, and to use evidence-based decision-making.

Insights from seasoned thought leaders combined with the benefits of a shared learning environment help reinforce individual learning outcomes. Participants will be expected to cascade that learning and leadership in their work across the public sector.

We will be launching our fourth cohort early in 2013. For further information, please contact Toby Fyfe by telephone at (613) 562-0090 ext. 242 or via email at
