Leaders in government face an increasing number of complex issues. Geopolitical challenges, threats to political stability, the rise of popular movements, economic and financial crises, social and cultural issues and technology developments all combine in different forms to apply pressure and pose challenges to government leaders. At the same time the budgets and resources available to manage these issues is limited and expectations of citizens are becoming more demanding. Citizens, legislators, NGOs, journalists and other stakeholders have access to more information and tools such as social media to make their voices heard. Failure to meet these expectations can provoke instability and threaten economic development.
Developing and delivering effective policies, managing change, dealing with crises and engagement with a wide range of stakeholders are essential skills for government officials at all levels, whether appointed or elected.
This training course will provide strategies and tools to enhance the leadership performance of government officials and allow them to take a strategic approach to managing the issues that face a modern government.
