                                          Description

                                          A note about Virtual vs. In-person Delivery:

                                          Cohort 9 will be delivered virtually over Zoom unless otherwise communicated. Please note: there is a likelihood that the Executive Retreat may be hosted in-person at the IOG offices -- if this is confirmed, participants will be notified.

                                           

                                          Virtual delivery does not mean you lose out on the value of face-to-face learning. Unlike traditional e-learning courses, the vELP is highly interactive and our instructors will ensure you get the most of your experience.

                                           

                                          From pandemic to paradigm shift

                                          In this post-truth, post-pandemic era, citizen expectations of their governments and of the service they provide are shifting rapidly. Technology-enabled work approaches will challenge our cities and our societies forever. The international trade trends and global deficits are going to be game changers for Canada. This complex and interconnected world will require networked leaders working together toward a shared goal.

                                          For public sector leaders, this is a period of opportunity and a moment for decisive leadership.


                                          Our Virtual Executive Leadership Program (vELP) prepares public sector leaders across departments and jurisdictions tasked to navigate the deep and rapid changes of our times.

                                           

                                          As leaders you will be called to develop and implement the new policies and programs for this new Canada and the vELP will allow you to develop a new holistic perspective and the skills to be successful.

                                          The new virtual formula breaks the regional barriers! Meet colleagues from all across Canada!


                                          Program Benefits

                                          • You will discuss the latest, citizen-centric thinking on governance in the post-pandemic’s ‘new normal’ (whatever that, ultimately, ends up being).
                                          • You will be able to cut through the ‘noise’ of the current times to make critical decisions on resource allocation and to get results for audiences that matter.
                                          • You will emerge more confident in your abilities as a people-leader and better able to respond to the leadership challenges you will face as your career progresses. 

                                          Program Outline

                                          Throughout the program participants will have the opportunity to join a network of peers and step back from the day-to-day to explore complex topics and issues. Guided by high-level guest speakers and skilled program facilitators, this program will allow participants to stretch their thinking around relevant challenges and opportunities.

                                           
                                          Topics discussed may include ideas such as: trust in government, sustainable development, diversity and inclusion, and many more. Sessions are designed to be interactive and engaging.
                                           
                                          In addition, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about themselves as leaders through self-assessment instruments and tools and executive coaching sessions.
