                                        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!

                                        In addition, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about themselves as leaders through self-assessment instruments and tools and executive coaching sessions.
