A Message from Toby Fyfe, President, Institute on Governance

Leadership programs for the public service of today prepare leaders for the public service of tomorrow. Our institutions face a world of declining public trust, disruptive change, and complex issues. Managing as usual is simply not an option.

Participants in our IOG leadership programs are able to get away from day-to-day pressures. Led by former senior public servants who bring a world of leadership experience to the table, participants debate key issues about the future of government and their role in it with first-class speakers and colleagues, and hone personal leadership skills that they then bring back to the office.

Participants attending the IOG leadership programs are offered that most precious of commodities – time. Time with our IOG leadership programs is not only an investment in the individual, but an investment in the future of that greatest of institutions, the public service.

Why the Executive Leadership Program is needed at this time

Iog Sample

"Congratulations to IOG on its Executive Leadership Program. We just don’t have enough of these. [...] With huge attrition rates, we are moving a lot of people in the EX cadre and the more we can support these individuals to become executives early on, the better we will be."
