The communications function is probably going through more change than almost any other in the government. The change is driven by an evolving environment (resulting, for example, from new technologies); organizational change as a result of cost-cutting exercises; and management changes as decision-making is centralized.
Communications leaders need to rise above the storm to prepare themselves, and their organizations, for success in this evolving world.
Building on our last successful event, this two-day Boot Camp is specifically designed for federal public servants at the EX-1 or equivalent level, including employees recognized as high potential, who work in the communications sections in their departments or agencies and who want to continue to add value in future leadership positions.
Why does executive leadership matter?
Communications leaders in the public service need to adapt to changes in government and be ready to support and guide management tables at a strategic level. This course will give you the understanding and means to build on your knowledge so that you are equipped to lead your organization forward.
In today’s environment, learning is more important than ever. In the Sixth Report of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee on the Public Service we read that “It is […] necessary to sustain investments in employee training and development, to ensure that the Public Service maintains the capacity to do its job even as the total size of the workforce is shrinking.”
Who should participate in this course?
This course will be of particular interest to professionals who work in the communications sections in their departments or agencies.
The cost of this course is $1500 (no HST) per person. The price includes expert facilitation, dinner, two lunches and course materials.
