Type d'événements: Bootcamp

Scientists and science policy advisors face a challenge in getting through to decision-makers. This two-day Boot Camp is specifically created for federal public servants at the EX-1 minus one or equivalent level who work in science departments or agencies and who want to learn how to have more impact in a changing environment while preparing themselves for future leadership positions.

Why does leadership matter?

Scientific thought and practice leaders in the public service must respond to changing government expectations and be able to leverage their value for managers through these changing times. This course will give you tools to build on your knowledge so that you are equipped to succeed.

In today’s environment, learning is now more important than ever. In the Sixth Report of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee on the Public Service it stated 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 science professionals.

Learning objectives:

  • understanding the changed public sector environment and how to remain relevant within it
  • using focused communications tools to get your message across
  • understanding how to adapt your leadership and management skills in response to a changing public service
  • being able to add value and remain strategic at the management tables you serve
